Icon of the Iron Knife from Radiant Dawn.

The most common type of throwing knife. It can be used on distant enemies, too.



First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The Iron Knife (Japanese: 鉄のナイフ Iron Knife) is a knife appearing exclusively in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is an average throwing knife which, while very low on power, can be thrown to attack at range as well as be used to attack in close quarters. It is very cheap, easy to find and easy to wield, and also fairly light, making it relatively easy for characters to strike twice with it per turn.
