I'm in the endgame and this is still my primary weapon.
I use it with one or with both hands, depending on situation.
(I am often switching during the same fight -- 'offensive with two hands' or 'defensive with one hand plus shield'.)
I am very agile and quick with it and I yield a high ratio of 'damage per second'.
It has a good range and a "round up" movement set on *one hand heavy attack*.
Its a mercyless slasher with *two hand light attack*.
I have more endurance than health points (31 vs 34), so I can land at least 5 swings in a row without exhausting)
All regular enemies are down after a 'one hit', inkl. bigger standard enemies.
Sentinels in Darkroot Garden take 4 hits and those in Anor Londo take 5 hits.
So I am done with all of them in an instant and mostly without taking any damage myself.
I just finished boss fight "4 Kings" on my very first attempt.
I don't think its true, that this sword is only for the early game.
I intent to use it for the whole run.
Its great together with pyromancy.
I have a devine uchigatana as a second weapon, but it is definitely weaker (+10, dex 32, fth 16).
