    Uchigatana purely for two reasons:

    1 It can break the defence of turtles.

    2 Its a guaranteed drop or can be bought.

    I'll go with balder because I actually never used but should be fun and, depends on what you like katanas or straight swords.

    I despise rapiers almost as much as james_hansen despises the darkmoons. I love and tolerate all other dex weapons, just. not. rapiers.

    I haven't used the Balder side sword, but I do know that I didn't like the Uchi that much.

    So I'll go with the BSS

    Balder sword is amazing if you want to stun lock. Uchi to me personally would be more fun... but it so tiny.. so so small and tiny.

    id go with the bss, that r2 one handed attack gets me a lot of times, specially with the lag that dark souls has, if your 15 feet in front of the guy it still gets you.

    I always go Iaito if it's a Dex thing...
    but I'll vote for the Balder Side Sword.

    Its moveset is better than the plain Uchi (both its R2 attacks are quicker), plus it was my first favorite sword! Also, I've seen BSS's own, especially when buffed.

    You do sacrifice the bleed...but I haven't really gotten anybody to bleed with my Iaito in a long while - I feel people have merely caught on. Occasionally its bleed damage will help if my opponent and I are just standing close and spamming R1 at one another...but even that rarely happens anymore. People will usually just eat your R1 attacks, move behind you and backstab.

    So yeah, I think the Balder Sword will be a great time.

    Heh, no problem. Just don't get me wrong - my favorite build of mine is based around a buffed Iaito. But when it's a regular Uchi v Balder Side Sword, the BSS's moveset wins it for me (plus, I think I've seen you mention that you're already a fan of the Iaito happy)
