Sharp Gems are upgrade materials in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A gem of infused titanite. Forged the unique curved swords of Carthus.
Used in infusion to create sharp weapons.
A swordsman can appreciate a sharp weapon, for they scale effectively with dexterity.


  • Undead Settlement
  • Catacombs of Carthus
    • Dropped by Skeleton Swordsmen.
    • Found on a corpse in the lower level of the multi-layered area immediately past the first bridge, in the room with a Skeleton Swordsman wielding a shotel. The corpse can be found on a ledge of an opening that overlooks the bottomless pit below the bridge.
  • Grand Archives
    • Guaranteed drop from a Crystal Lizard found on the rooftops. It is found after passing the first spear-wielding Gargoyle and is next to another Crystal Lizard. The left lizard is the one which drops the Sharp Gem.
  • Painted World of Ariandel


Infusing a weapon with the Sharp property will increase the Dexterity scaling on that weapon, and as such, is an excellent choice for players who invested heavily into dexterity. As a result of the infusion, however, the Strength scaling will be lowered, or entirely removed on some weapons, and the weapon's base damage will be slightly reduced.

Weapons that scale well with dexterity from their base level will benefit greatly from sharp infusions.

As of the 1.32 Regulations patch, Sharp-infused weapons will gain increased scaling at very high levels of Dexterity. Between 40 and 60 Dexterity, scaling is poor, however beyond 60 Dexterity it will greatly increase until it gradually begins to fall off at roughly 80 Dexterity.
