Location

The ritual knife is found in the caves beneath the ritual site, stuck in a skull on the sacrificing table near The Krivbeknih, after beginning the quest The Dark Heart of Blackhall.

Notes

One of Jaime's holotapes found in the Dunwich Building speaks of a "sharp knife" used to "send him to deep temple".

Bugs

Icon ps3.png The ritual knife will sometimes fall inside the sacrificing table making it difficult to obtain. It is possible to dislodge it with explosives and/or third person view to pick it up.[verified]
