    buffed bss owns katanas any day, it has huge range and fast as hell, you can kill someone in 5 seconds with it.

    The R2 on the BSS is very powerful. It has reach like the Esto, but finishes quicker. 2Handed, it can stunlock enemies with low poise, and is also very light. 3 lbs? Seriously? I think I'd still love it as much if it weighed 4. Anyone smell overpower?

    As for the uchigatana, never really liked it that much. Its a nice weapon, but I'd go for the Iaito instead. Scaling wise, they both do well with dex, but BSS also scales slightly with str.

    I'd have to go with Uchi...not because of stat differences, simply because I've been grinding for the past hour trying to get the BSS, and no luck sad

    BSS for style.
    Uchi and other Katanas are the most common PvP weapon I have seen, on par with Greatswords.

    Lol, anyway to answer your question: It's a Katana. Just search it at the Wiki btw. You get it if you kill the undead merchant at the burg. I wouldn't do it though, he sells useful stuff imo. Most important for me is the fact that he sells Lloyd's Talismans. Those can be very important if you like invading particularly. I bought 99 near the end of my playthrough before I decided to kill him to get the Uchi.

    I'm using it as +15 with Sunlight Blade buff, it's pretty lethal I have to say, but after the buff wears off you're pretty screwed since it doesn't have that much power on it's own
