Silver Knight Straight Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.

 

The silver knights of Anor Londo guard the city using this beautifully slender weapon.
"Its chain attacks, in which the wielder takes great advancing steps and makes use of his bodyweight, are deadly even in single hits."

 

How to Get / Where to Find the Silver Knight Straight Sword

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Can be given to Kingseeker Frampt to receive 100 Souls.
  • Silver Knight Straight Sword can be upgraded by using Twinkling Titanite.
  • With 99 Strength and Dexterity and at +5, the attack rating of this sword will be 419.
  • This sword originally had a Divine modifier, but later game patches removed it and made the weapon enchantable instead.
  • Higher base damage compared to other straight swords. Low scaling and weight of 6.0 however make it less optimal choice for PvP than Balder Side Sword or Longsword.
  • You can true combo light attacks after a heavy R2 attack with this weapon, but not vice versa.

      Looks great and very nice base damage. Scaling is a weakpoint, and moveset lacks a nice thrust. With good dexterity, it puts out very solid damage for a 6 weight, reasonably fast weapon. Could be a really nice sword to use in midgame if lucky enough to drop one in Anor Londo, but loses some of its edge when you get +15 weapon upgrades in the late game.

        I was going threw me first play though with a lighting faith/strength build and I had a bss, I found this weapon and loved it but got disappointed it can’t be leveled to lighting :(

          Perfect for dex builds who use straight swords but don’t have a titanite slab yet, assuming you can handle the weight. Very easy to upgrade and nice moveset. Even after bringing balder swag sword to +15, I still use skss sometimes to switch things up or in situations where I want vertical slash.

            Alongside a silver knight spear it's a best weapon for leveling a dex character. Thanks to twinkling titanite from crystal lizards and anor londo blacksmith you can upgrade this thing to +5 fairly early in the game and comfortably use it till you get enough titanite chunks for a "real" weapon.

              They should've swapped the moveset and attack speed of this thing with the balder knight sword, would've even made more sense lore-wise

                Best looking sword ingame, and pretty solid too. Too bad it doesn't have the greatest scaling, this thing could steal much more spot on pvp or pve with a B or A scaling on DEX.

                  Got a bit more lucky in past runs but damn.. on my latest run i have at least 30 Knights and no Sword in sight. Can someone drop me that on the Switch (EU)?

                    This sword unironically carried me through O&S, it randomly dropped from a Silver Knight and then mowed through them

                      Very aesthetic sword and the R2’s are amazing. It’s also worth noting that the swing speed seems identical to other straight swords, it’s only the pause in between each R1 which is longer. Straight swords cannot stun lock with R1s in pvp so this isn’t a disadvantage here unlike say Quelaag’s sword which loses the 2 handed stunlock that the other curved swords have or the heavier greatswords that can’t 1 hand stunlock compared to the claymore.

                        I love it. Longest straight sword and look cool. Awesome move set, light R1 is a little slower than longsword light R1 but the first heavy R1 is incredibly fast, can chain with both light R1 anytime. Fast slash in wide area and fast heavy swipe down in narrow area, super useful. Only disadvantage is it have a little lower scale than other straight sword, but it base dame is higher so it only be out damage a little by other straight sword when have high strength.

                          i'm never lucky, even farming humanity from the rats in the depth don't give me much, but i had the absolute luck by getting this sword on my fourth knight, finally a bit of luck in my life

                            I farmed for this sword for 2 hours with 10 humanity and the covetous gold serpent ring and couldn't get it. I did however get 4 silver knight shields what have a lower drop rate. Are there any items that increase item drop rate other then those two?

                              Let's be real, if this had stat quality/moveset equivalent to the claymore, balder side sword, or gold tracer nobody would use anything else.

                                Whenever I do a Dexterity character, i always get 10 Twinkling Titanite from Crystal Lizards before Anor Londo, I farm this sword and upgrade it, and then I destroy O&S.

                                  This is the best looking sword in all the dark souls series because it reminds me of Aragorn's Andúril especially the sword's guard too bad it's not available as a drop in Dark Souls III

                                    This is the sword from the opening cinematic, the shot where you can see both the dragon and the knight's hand wielding it also, the camera is focused on the handle, brilliant shot. Always wondered if you could actually get that sword in-game.

                                      Dex scaling should at least progress into a high B when fully upgraded. Don't know why devs made 80% of mid to late game weapons so lackluster.
