      Easily the most godly of shields massive overall defense, incredible stability and fairly lightweight also incredibly useful against many bosses ex: twin princes, Old demon king, Demon prince and twin demons, and any other enemy that uses fire damage, also great against pyros if you dont feel you have time to dodge or not confident in your timing full glass cannon pyros do literally like 75-100 damage with a spell that would normally do aroung 600-800 damage

        This shield is superb and I'm really surprised it doesn't get more recognition on here. It's a medium shield with good all around defenses, but most of all stability (what really counts) that, when fully upgraded, rivals that of quite a few in the Greatshield class. I think it particularly shines with characters that have high stamina but its balance of the some of the benefits of a greatshield but the lighter weight and requirement of a medium shield can benefit a lot of builds. It also on top of everything else, has the weapon skill ability. Plus it looks really cool.

          I dont understand why people say the sks is the best medium shield when the bks has all better stats including stability

            At +5 it has 69 stabillity, at +4 has 67, i think it's the highest stability out of all standard shields.

              No parry?15 Apr 2016 19:15  

              Well, this shield used to be the best one in DS 1, it was because all that good stats for a medium shield (which can parry). However, now is just a shield with no parry or other stuff, is good to use your weapon art without having to change to two-hands but being a so good shield with a parry made me love it.

                  In DS1, the Black Knight Shield can block 95% enemy fire damage, but now they reduced it to 85%.
