Steel Weapons in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are used against specific types of enemies (primarily humans). These weapons vary in damage as they scale with your level. Generally when you pick one up it will be between 3-5 levels below your current level. The bonuses are always the same, but they vary in amount based on the level of the weapon. All Steel Swords have the same damage at the same level.

      Instant Kill05 Jul 2016 15:37  

      The instant kill swords were my preferred choice in Witcher 2, so I was thrilled to find the Tor Lara sword. The required level is 17. I'm guessing I found mine far too early to see 410 damage because mine is 150-184 Damage 101 Vitality 18% Aard Sign intensity 17% chance to cause burning and the 3% chance for instant kill.
