The knife is a melee weapon in Fallout 3.

CharacteristicsEdit

The knife appears to be a rusty kitchen knife.

DurabilityEdit

The knife can successfully strike about 500 times from full condition before breaking.

VariantsEdit

  • Ant's Sting - Obtained by siding with the AntAgonizer in The Superhuman Gambit, Ant's Sting is slightly stronger than the regular knife, and deals poison damage over time.
  • Slasher knife - Appears in Tranquility Lane and can only be obtained outside of the simulation through console commands.
  • Ritual knife Gametitle-FO3 PL - Even more powerful than the Ant's Sting, the ritual knife only uses 12 AP for each V.A.T.S. attack.
  • Toy knife Gametitle-FO3 PL - Using even less AP than the ritual knife, 10 compared to 12, the toy knife uses the lowest amount of AP for any weapon in Fallout 3. However, it does very little damage, much less than the regular knife.
