This page refers to the weapon type associated with all knives, for the weapon see Knife (weapon).

The Knife (短剣 Tanken) is a weapon type that debuts in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. Weapons in this category are distinguished as ones that are weak, principally wielded by Thieves and Assassins.

In Path of Radiance, knives are the weakest melee weapons available in the game, a fact that is offset by the high Critical hit ratios that they boast. The Knife skill is necessary for such weapons to be wielded, and which can be learnt by a Mage character when they promote into a Sage, should knives be chosen as their secondary equipment.

In Radiant Dawn, while knives and daggers fall under the same weapon category, they are differentiated by the fact that the former are ranged weapons and the latter are melee ones. Knives are usually inferior to daggers in terms of Might, compensating for their versatility as weapons that can be used for both melee and ranged combat.

In Fire Emblem Fates, Daggers, or knifes in general, return and become a integral part of the weapon triangle. Nohr receives the European-style daggers and knifes that we've seen before, while Hoshido introduces the more Japanese-styled Shuriken.

In Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher), Knives are counted as a type of Shuriken, effectively merging the two weapon types into one.
