The straight razor is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

The straight razor is an old-fashioned shaving razor with a polished wooden handle. Though its blade is short, it is lightweight and can deliver several slashing hits in rapid succession. It also provides bonus Critical Chance benefits, and bonus Critical damage.

This weapon is classified as a "Holdout" weapon, and can be smuggled into areas that prohibit any kind of weapons.

Special attack

It has a special Back Slash attack that does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 3 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Type of attackSkill requiredDamage per attack in V.A.T.S.Action point costDamage per action point
Normal010180.56
Back Slash507150.47
Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

It is possible to execute Back Slash outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.

Durability

The straight razor can successfully strike about 370 times from full condition before breaking.
