To any latecomers curious about this weapon's notorious legacy:
The PKCS is, all things told, not even that crazy powerful. Curved swords are quite good in DS3, particularly in PvP, and PK has just enough little incremental advantages to be considered arguably the best, and for that, it was very popular. It has the longest range, the preferred 'light' scimitar moveset rather than the 'heavy' falchion one, and uses less stamina per swing than Carthus Curved Sword. No, Elden Ring players, its weapon skill has very little to do with its power profile, though it is a fine L2 as they go in this game. Basically, if someone toasts your buns with this, they could probably do it with any other curved sword, but if they barely eke out the win, you can blame the PKCS's marginal privileges.
