Yes you lose your rank so it's probably not worth it.
If you put the dark hand in your left hand it's that black shield they use which looks awesome and is fantastic against magic. If you put it in the right hand it's a weapon and you can drain humanity with it in PvP.
It's amazing how fast you can go through the game, even with farming, when you know exactly what to do and where to go.
