The Disciples blade is a weapon in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.


A makeshift knife carried by members of the Disciples, made from different scrap materials depending on the modifications added. The hacking/serrated blade appears to be made from a small lawnmower blade with a kitchen knife handle secured on one end with nails and rope, similar to the machete from Fallout: New Vegas. The knife blade, however, appears to be a metal box wrench that has been hammered flat on one end and sharpened on one edge, leaving the other, untouched half of the wrench to serve as a handle. The cutlass blade consists of the knife blade with a much larger blade bolted to it.
