Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The combat knife is a melee weapon that was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It also featured in the Van Buren tech demo.


The combat knife is a bladed weapon specifically made for fighting, with a serrated edge to inflict extra damage to the target. This makes it superior to the kitchen knife in combat.
