The Black Steel Cutter greatsword can be looted from a chest within the Hermit’s Cave in Barren Swamp. However, the entrance to the Hermit’s Cave is locked, and unlocking Hermit’s Cave is the only thing you need to do to get the weapon.

The first thing on the list is that you need to obtain the Special Krat Supply Box from a chest in Collapsed Street in Chapter 9. Go up to the 3rd floor of the hotel and pass through the broken wall. From there, continue on the ledge around the tower and the drop-down and continue on the north side. This is where you’ll find the chest holding the Special Krat Supply Box.

Return to Hotel Krat with the Special Krat Supply Box, deliver it to Polendina to expand his inventory, and then purchase Rusty Cryptic Vessel from him. Take the Rusty Cryptic Vessel to Venigni and ask him to decipher it.

Once that is done, you are free to go to Barren Swamp, as the entrance to Hermit’s Cave will now be unlocked.

Go down the ladder from the Hermit’s Cave stargazer until you see a wooden structure from which a carcass enemy emerges. This structure has a chest inside, which contains the Black Steel Cutter weapon in Lies of P.
