"Daggers that once served as the heads of framae spears, their edges have been sharpened to the width of a babe's hair"
- These are the most powerful (physical based damage) daggers in the game.
- All Bitterblack Weapon Lv.3s have a minimum level requirements of level 51. Until the level requirement is met, using even basic core attacks, weapon skills and sprinting will consume unusually large amounts of stamina. In addition, stamina will replenish at a much slower rate. Simply having Framae Blades EQUIPPED while the Arisen fires basic shots from a Rusted Bow will consume considerable stamina.

- The word Framea (Capcom misspelling) derives from an old German word for "spear". By the 7th century, the word Framea referred to a sword instead of a spear. In the world of Dragon's Dogma, the Framea has become even more compact, taking on the form of daggers instead of a sword. Alternately, the Framae Blades may be viewed as the steel head tips of old Germanic spears (pre-Roman period). (Source: paraphrased from Wikipedia).
- The steel pattern that can be seen on these blades are crucible steel, which is also called Wootz steel, or pattern forging. Though today widely known as Damascus steel, it actually originated in South India around the sixth century BC at production sites of Kodumanal in Tamil Nadu, Golconda in Telangana, Karnataka and Sri Lanka. It was exported globally and the Arabs introduced the South Indian Wootz steel to Damascus, where an industry for making weapons of this steel developed. Europeans of the Middle Ages first came in contact with wootz steel during the time of the crusades around the 12th century, it was therefore called Damascus steel by them. For these Europeans the Damascus steel was an indicator of the finest blades of the Middle Ages. Pattern-forging is also an independently-discovered technique that has been used by Japanese weapon-smiths for centuries. The smithing technique involves folding and hammer-forging the bar stock repeatedly, then taper-grinding the edges. This produces incredible strength in the blade and a gorgeous watered-taffeta effect across the metal.
- The Damascene pattern is particularly noticeable when the Framae Blades are under an elemental enchantment, especially a Holy buff.
