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 Single-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 Boards. This update also fixed disappearing/non-retrievable knives.
- Before Beta 3.1, the knife's flavor text stated simply "Throwable".
