Uchigatana is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A unique katana characterized by the fine craftsmanship of an eastern land where it was forged.

The finely-sharpened blade cuts flesh like butter and causes bleeding, but breaks easily as a result.

Skill: Hold
Assume a holding stance to rapidly execute a lunging slash with a normal attack, or a deflecting parry with the strong attack.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Upgraded with Titanite.
  • Earliest Katana you can get in the game. Due to its early game availability, players who chose the Mercenary class will be able to use this weapon right away without leveling up as long as they two-hand it.
  • It uses slightly less stamina than all other katanas in the game except Darkdrift.

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Sword Master just outside Firelink Shrine. Should the Sword Master fall off the edge, simply reload the area and the Uchigatana will be where he fell.

      Its a hard item to acquire, therefore it is a reward item!

      I just started my first ever playthrough on DS3 and opted for the uchi. Its tough to use but very fun!

      It makes the rotting greatwood a bit easier with its 2 handed slashes, recommend for this fight

      • 18 Mar 2017 02:52  

        At SL 71, 24 Dex, 10 Str, with leo ring, flynn's ring, hunter's ring and +10 Sharp infused uchigatana; my backstep+R1 counterattacks have done from 620 damage (unbuffed) up to 812 damage (charcoal pine resin) on other players.

        Only ~358 AR. And people never expect backsteps in DS3. At that level, most people don't invest enough in Vigor, and the properly timed backstep+R1 easily ends a fight or at the least puts you at a drastic health advantage. I'll probably experiment with the chaos blade to see if I can get up to 900 or more counterattack damage.

        Not sure if katana counterattacks are broken or if it has to do with headshots/attack placement, but it's a very underrated move at the moment.

        • 13 Jan 2017 00:37  

          Wish they brought back the holding style for katanas from demons soul. Holding it upright like ds1-3 just looks awkwards i like i held downwards like a samurai

          • 31 Dec 2016 16:38  

            An excellent weapon. Love buffing it. I've been doing incredible in PVP with this and a Rapier in my off-hand. Slashing with the Uchiha when they're close and stabbing with the Rapier through their rolls. Being able to Parry with the weapon in 2 hand form is also very useful, though it feels harder to pull off than using a parrying shield.

            • Zer0 Cosplay03 Oct 2016 00:09  

              Was thinking of using this for a cosplay, should I use normal, sharp or raw infusion? Not sure which comes out with more dmg at 11 str 16 dex, but I'm guessing it's Raw?

              • Uchigatana...wtf!?18 Aug 2016 17:17  

                I'm new to DS3, but I've been picking it well...! Just have one question; I finally got the uchigatana from that guy in the diaper but, when I equip it my attributes wont allow me to use it properly!!! What are the minimum attributes I need for it to be used effectively!? Thanks!

                • Poison?18 Jul 2016 16:43  

                  I was kinda considering going poison on this one, over sharp, for the double status effect, since I'm going dex/end primary this char for NG. Now this is only my second char, and my first just hit NG+ as a caster so, any input is appreciated.

                  • To each their own and this is mine.29 Jun 2016 21:56  

                    Became my savior for otherwise challenging trash and now I use it for almost everything.<br/>Cathedral Evangelist's were giving me problems until I took one of these to their massive gut. 2 handing a +2 uchi at the very beginning of undead settlement I was able to knock these out without taking damage. It seems to stagger them quite easily and the bleed effect hit's them extremely hard.<br/><br/>The same effect was observed on the Lycanthropes in the road to sacrifices (big guys with the crosses on their backs.) walk up behind them and you get a 3 hit kill before they even turn around.

                    • Uchi is good, although not exceptional27 Jun 2016 00:33  

                      After playing with it for a while, the Uchigatana is a decidedly decent weapon that falls between the extremes. It has decent, although not the greatest scaling. It attacks a little slower than a straight sword, but the speed of the individual attacks make them difficult to parry. The uchi is in the middle range of attack speed for bleed weapons, leaving it neither wanting nor exceptional. <br/><br/>The only thing one could really fault the uchigatana for is its higher stamina cost, weight, and low durability. A competent player can eventually figure out how to get around its weaknesses to discover an enjoyable experience.

                      • I don't get it06 Jun 2016 20:21  

                        Katanas seem worse than thrusting swords and straight swords in this game. I noticed Katanas have the same or less range, more startup and more recovery than the aforementioned weapons. Whats up with that? What can katanas do (aside from the hold skill- the mind games you can play with it in pvp are really good, but it's still a subpar skill since the direct attack from Hold cant be followed by anything) that other weapons don't? Can someone enlighten me?

                        • staggering performance09 May 2016 20:36  

                          It's good for the amount of stagger it provides.... it staggers most enemies with first hit and it's faster and lighter than great swords.

                          • help, cannot equip uchigatana02 May 2016 18:11  

                            Master died quite easily, but i'ts a long time since I played Dark Souls series and now don't understand why I cant equip the weapon.<br/>Level 14<br/>Strenght 11<br/>Dexterity 18<br/>Class - mercenary

                            • Holy hell the parry29 Apr 2016 23:45  

                              anyone know how many parry frames this thing has? i can not parry in any dark souls game despite over a thousand hours across them all but this thing? able to parry stuff left right and center.

                              • Easiest kill27 Apr 2016 21:10  

                                Go to the Wall bonfire and get a crossbow from the skeleton hiding on the scaffolding. May take several kills to get it to drop. Next, buy at least 70+ bolts from the vendor. Next, use the tree trunk/elevation trick to get up on the tower (see YouTube for explanation. Run around the roof over to the area where the swordmaster is standing and simply shoot him while he stands below you. This might get fixed soon, since it's basically two exploits in one, but he's literally the hardest enemy I have encountered in DS3 and I am 3/4 through the game so far.

                                • Killmenow.jpg27 Apr 2016 03:25  

                                  Every time I see someone using this sword + Grass Crest Shield + Fallen Knight set I want to just go back to DS1. I swear everyone using that combo is under the age of 12 and only playing DS3 cause of Pewdiepie...
