Washing Pole is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.


A stunning, unusually long katana forged in an eastern land.

The extreme length of this blade provides immense range, but also renders the blade extremely fragile.

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



Notes and Tips

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • It's the longest katana in the game, although this comes at the cost of higher stamina usage per swing.
  • 18 STR and 60 DEX nets a Sharp Washing Pole the fourth place in katana AR (420 AR). Third place taken by Black Blade (430 AR), Second place being the Chaos Blade (444 AR), and the strongest being the Frayed Blade (469 AR).
  • It's strongest AR comes from the hollow infusion.
  • It is based on the ceremonial sword ōdachi. This may be why it is always extremely fragile in the Souls series.

      Is this thing's weapon art even physically possible? I know this game has lots of physically impossible things in it, but to quick draw from a sheath on your hip a weapon as long as you are tall...

        I normally love this blade. Its reach. Makes salt fly everywhere and if your smart you could get a few good stunlocks. But it's continuity. Is terrible. Making it very hard to actually fight for more than a moment. Plus its attack isn't as initially high as other blades.

          Correction:
          The blade scales B on Dexterity with a Sharp Infusion and +10, not A
          In the table for Sharp Infusion specifically, this is already the case and only the max table needs to be corrected

            To clarify: Washing Pole is the translation of the name of the Nodachi (a very long katana) used in Gunryu against Musashi, in the most famous duel of all times. The book Musashi is the most read in Japan, the place of the batle was a island that now is call Gunryu Jin ("Gunryu island"), and there is a statue of both warriors a second before they strike, in the exact place where it happens. Musashi is the most famous person in the history of Japan. Most of what we know from Manga and Anime have influence on his story, and there is a word in japonese that means "musashi like". Just google musashi...

              I'm going to make a sephiroth build and was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to give me a washing pole level 0 is fine I just want the weapon at the start of the game

                Maybe it would have mpre durability if you didn't use it to gouge a foot deep hole in the ground everywhere you go.

                  I believe the name the washing pole comes from the manga "Vagabond" where an unusually long katana was nicknamed the drying pole

                    Update the page. Frayed Blade is the best damaging katana, making the Washing Pole the 4th highest damaging katana.

                      I'm doing a katana only build, and I'm wandering if the low durability and higher stamina usage is worth it.

                        The complaints about this weapon are unwarranted. It can't combo more than 1 R1 and its running attack is now very reactable, while just like in DS1 its running attack completely negated by a shield. Trading with this weapon is laughably easy since you won't even eat two hits if your timing is off. If you can't beat this weapon you're failing at the basic fundamentals of the game.
