Truth and Ideals

Kirito brought Kai to Lisbeth's Smith Shop, who requested for a new sword. Realizing that any weapon outside of a boss drop was not strong enough to progress as a Clearer, Kai accepted Lisbeth's invitation to start the Raid on the Cornerstone quest to obtain Cornerium Ingots.

Upon the defeat of Monument the Lord's Obelisk, Kai and Lisbeth return to Lindarth to forge the sword. The ingot required 277 hits before it formed the Excelsis. Thinking that the sword had exceeded the stats of Dark Repulser (as well as its unique name), and thus caused Lisbeth to revoke her original feelings for Kirito and attempted to confess to Kai, but was interrupted by Lind, who attacked Kai.

After Lind retreated, Selphie questioned why Kai didn't use Excelsis to defend himself against Lind. Kai said that he had left the path of murder and swore on that next blade that he would not injure another player with it, lest he go mad. The next day, Kai uses it to clear the first three floors of the Labyrinth, with Kirito.
