The knife is a melee weapon in Fallout 3.


The following section is transcluded from Knife. To modify, please edit the source page.

A simple, all-purpose culinary tool, also called chef's, cook's, or French knife. The large, curved blade is meant to allow the chef to rock the knife on the cutting board to obtain a precise cut, while the weight enables chopping bone. Although unwieldy in combat, it's a decent weapon for the same reasons it's so useful in the kitchen.


  • Ant's Sting, slightly stronger than the regular knife, and deals poison damage over time.
  • Slasher knife, an incredibly powerful knife that only appears in Tranquility Lane.
  • Ritual knife Point LookoutGametitle-FO3 PL.png, a knife even more powerful than the Ant's Sting that uses less Action Point in V.A.T.S.
  • Toy knife Point LookoutGametitle-FO3 PL.png, uses the lowest amount of AP for any weapon in Fallout 3. However, it does very little damage, much less than the regular knife and breaks very often.
