This is a dagger with the Quickstep weapon ability as its default weapon. It has an FP value of three and may cause the Hemorrhage or Blood loss standing to build up. The Wakizashi knife provides Strength and Dexterity. It may be found within one of Gaol Cave’s numerous sealed jails. However, you may need to first unlock the jails.

What I enjoyed about about this knife was its excellent weapon capability. It allows you to switch to protection and avoid the adversaries’ incoming damage. As you return, look for a space to pierce and slice your adversaries. It is without a doubt one of the most effective daggers for cheeseing your opponents. While it cannot be energy stanced with other daggers, it may be energy stanced with katanas.

Black Knife

It is a dagger with the characteristics Faith and Dexterity. It has an FP value of 25 and also inflicts Holy damage. The Blade of Death is a new weapon ability for Black Knife. This ability fires a projectile towards the targeted opponents from a medium range. And this missile does holy harm. By defeating the Black Knife Assasin at the entrance to Sainted Hero’s tomb, you can find the Black Knife dagger. At Altus Plateau, it is located to the west of the Rampartside Path. It cannot be increased with consumables or spells. To spice up its hurt, utilise the Holy Shrouding Cracked tear and Sacred Scorpion appeal.

While most players consider daggers to be just for stealth, this dagger only provides Strength qualities. You can energy stance it with various daggers to do outrageous damage.
