    First of all, you need to forge a weapon to +5 status (using Titanite shards, which can be purchased from a Blacksmith), and then transform it into a Raw Weapon.

    Once it becomes a raw weapon, you need to forge it to +5 again and the Achievement is yours!

    You will need, in total:

    Titanite Shards x9
    Large Titanite Shards x10

    Only Andrei in the Undead Parish can upgrade to Raw Weapons.
    He can be found to the right of the church in the Undead Parish, into the building, then down the stairs from the bonfire.

    You will also need to provide him with a Large Ember. This can be found in the Kitchen in The Depths. (thanks Torash!)

    Freezer965Just wanna say that you actually need a total of 10 large Titanite Shards, cause of the one you need to transform the weapon into raw.

    Iv Barbarian vIYes, I was about to post what Freezer said. Andre requires a large shard to actually ascend the item to Raw, which makes ten required in total.

    Through normal play I eventually found a lightning spear. This is a Spear +10 that has already been ascended. You can have Andre descend items as well. First I had him descend the spear I found (I was already using a Zweihander +10), and which incidentally I had wanted to ascend with Lightning for maximum damage.

    Have descended the lightning spear to Raw +0, I simply reinforced it 8x Large Titanite and the achievement popped. This technique of using a found weapon saved 9x Titanite Shards. Which is useful if you are working toward any number of boss weapons.
