Not to be confused with Jagged Ghost Blade.

The Ghost Blade is a dagger in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

The ghosts of New Londo clutch this wickedly sharp dagger with their bony hands and make mincemeat of the living.
One of the cursed weapons which can inflict damage upon ghosts.

Availability[]

Drop from the Banshee in the New Londo Ruins. Since the drop rate is only 1%, without boosting Item Discovery, and there are only two banshees that drop it, multiple runs may be required.

Characteristics[]

The Ghost Blade has the rare curse effect, making it a valuable weapon when going through New Londo.

The Ghost Blade has the highest base damage of all the daggers, however, it cannot be buffed, does not cause Bleed, and has the second lowest (although still significant) critical modifier of all daggers. Although it is listed as a slashing and thrusting weapon, almost the entirety of its moveset uses slash attacks.
