A sturdy and powerful throwing knife. It can be used on distant enemies, too.



First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The Steel Knife (Japanese: 鋼のナイフ Steel Knife) is a knife appearing exclusively in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is the mid-range basic throwing knife, being more powerful than the Iron Knife while still being inferior to the Silver Knife. It is stronger, but heavier and less accurate than the Iron Knife; as such, it is typically used by units with some experience in the knife.
