Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

Knife (Japanese: 軽器装備 Equip Light Weapon) is a skill which debuted in and is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. It is a class skill belonging to the Thief and Assassin classes, and is an available option for Sages when promoting them; it enables the user to wield knives. Knife does not exist in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, as it was rendered redundant by the implementation of a proper weapon category and rank system for knives.
