The Saw Spear is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly used by those who dedicate themselves to the hunt.
This saw, effective at drawing the blood of beasts, transforms into a medium-range spear.
The saw, with its set of blood-letting teeth, has become a symbol of the hunt, and only grows in effectiveness the more grotesquely transformed the beast.



The Saw Spear is considered by most players to be the superior version of the Saw Cleaver. It is made an even more tempting weapon since it can be acquired within the first half-hour of the game.

The major differences between these two very similar weapons are:

  • The Cleaver has slightly higher base damage
  • The Cleaver is mostly Strength based, while the Spear is mostly Skill based
  • The Cleaver has one mode that deals serrated damage, whereas the Saw Spear has both dealing serrated damage
  • The Cleaver deals only physical damage, while the Spear also has thrust and blunt attacks, making its moveset more varied

In the end the evidence is clear, the Saw Spear is mostly a more versatile option.

Especially because in "Quality" builds (builds with the same amount of level investment in both Strength and Skill), both weapons deal essentially the same damage.


  • This weapon deals Serrated Damage in its closed mode. Serrated damage deals 20% more damage against "True" Beasts.
  • It can be a good idea to infuse this weapon with fire Blood Gems as its serrated damage will multiply it against beasts.
  • The Saw Cleaver is its Strength-scaling counterpart.


  • This weapon, along with the Saw Cleaver, has a hidden +20% damage modifier against Beast type enemies. This works with both of the weapon's forms (Blade and Spear). It is hinted in the description with "The saw, with its set of blood-letting teeth[...]and only grows in effectiveness the more grotesquely transformed the beast."
