The Knife is a powerful throwable weapon.
The knife, when thrown, flies at a higher speed than any other throwable and deals a hefty amount of damage comparable to the One Shot Pistol. The knife can also be retrieved from the ground if it missed, or from the target's inventory after its death. The quick attack of the knife is a 3 stab flurry that consumes little stamina, making it a fast melee weapon if the need arises.
It should be noted the knife is very small and easily lost when thrown haphazardly.
Calculating based on a knife's Reputation value to measure durability, a knife loses 13% durability on a throw, 5% on a quick attack to a non living target, and 7% on a quick attack to a living target. hitting non-living targets, and 6% on hitting living targets.
The knife will also disappear completely if it is thrown onto an opponent that despawns, such as nightly invaders at dawn.
- Alpha 9 removed the possibility of repairing a knife. Before, such action would cost 2 pieces of Scrap Metal and 2 Planks. This update also fixed disappearing/non-retrievable knives.
- Before Beta 3.1, the knife's flavor text stated simply "Throwable".
