    Do the same thing again, and after taking the first hit, just parry, it is practically like an auto-parry. There is a video out there of it. (I think it might be martyr's brigade, not sure).

    Possible problem here can be slight delay of 2nd swing since it's not that fast as Falchion where you parry as soon as you take first hit. This I found a little bit harder to pull out but there's always practice :-)

    I use the katana almost all the time.

    I have most trouble with 2h greatswords or ultra greatswords. Once I'm hit I'm stunlocked, and I have 53 poise.

    Also, don't attempt to use a shield. I always have a shotel for backup.

    It is very effective, if you can become good at it. It shouldn't be a OHK in most cases. If they try to BS fish, then counter BS. It is just a really powerful move that is high risk/reward.

    @reim0027: I understand, but if they play conservatively, then my CMW will wear out :cry:

    That's a problem with mages, especially if you have a streak going, your magic runs out.
