Location[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

One of Jaime's holotapes found in the Dunwich building speaks of a "sharp knife" used to "send him to deep temple". It is not known whether the ritual knife has any connection to this statement.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Playstation 3Icon 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]
