Get ready guys. HERE COMES THE FARM

Uhhh compatible weapons aren't correct right now. Pretty sure you cant use sharpstone on a bow... or the mace or long sword or Knights sword...
This is the bladestone not the sharpstone
Why is such a pain to farm these?!!
I updated the page (removed weapons from the list that can't be upgraded with bladestone). Should be correct now.
Can confirm the shards also drop from the Black Skeletons. Easiest farming method (easiest, but definitely not easy) is to spawn at the Adjudicator Stone with the Thief Ring, Providential Ring, and Great Club. Head back up the stairs to get a backstab on the black skeleton and wail on it until it drops something.
Copied from the Upgrades page:

Sharp Upgrades
Upgrade weapons with the Sharp upgrade path from +1 to a max level of +5. Forge weapons with the Bladestone that provides a DEX bonus but at the same time, it lowers any STR bonus.
Is there a set limit to pure stones or are they able to be farmed?
They can be farmed from Black Skeletons (dual Katana) in 4-1 and 4-2.

They're rare as hens teeth though, so increase your chances through things like Black World Tendency, Lucky Coins, and Large Sword of Searching.
I somehow got 2 pure stones in a row from the 4-2 black skeleton yet I’m struggling to get the rest of the mats from the same guy lol
