The Survival Knife is a very short, steel knife with a black hilt.
Survival Knives can be dropped by defeated enemies that wield them or released from breakable Containers. Touching one will make the playable character pick it up automatically, and pressing // (whether on the ground or in mid-air) will cause him to attack with it. As a close-quarters combat weapon, the Survival Knife is designed for face-to-face combat. By comparison, it has a short attack range and does not deal much damage, making it one of the worst weapons in the game. A Survival Knife can swung a total of six times, and once those tries are spent, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another six attacks by picking up another Survival Knife.
