Balder Knight is an Enemy in Dark Souls.
Also known as Balder's Undead Knight, these fully armored undead knights hail originally from the land of Balder. They are seen carrying either a straight sword, rapier, or crossbow. Balder was the homeland of the Knight King Rendal, but it came to ruin after a great many Undead were spawned.

Stay behind your shield, and only attack when they are vulnerable. They have moderate health, but their attacks are usually predictable. The longsword variant has many attacks that leave it vulnerable for countering, so just take a couple steps back to wait out the attack, then step in with your own. The rapier variant will attempt to parry and riposte. You can tell when it will attempt this because it will change stances, pointing it's rapier towards you whilst keeping it's shield up. You can safely kick them out of that stance, or just take the chance to heal. The crossbow variant is easy enough to deal with; just approach with your shield raised, and attack when it switches weapons.
