A butter knife is a blade melee weapon.

Usage

Weapon

The butter knife is an emergency weapon with extremely low damage, however it can perform an instant kill jaw stab. It is highly ineffective in a defensive situation, as it will never knockdown an opponent and only knock them back a very short distance.

The butter knife has a very short range, making it very dangerous when fighting zombies, however it does have a quick attack. It is a single-attack weapon, hitting just 1 opponent with each swing. Butter knives are mostly useless in combat, however they can get the player out of a dangerous situation and should only be equipped in an emergency, or if smashing a window.

Breaking doors

It is mostly ineffective at bashing down doors, dealing just 1 damage per hit. For comparison, an axe deals 35 damage.

Chopping trees

It cannot be used to chop trees, dealing 0 damage per hit. For comparison, an axe deals 35 damage.

Condition

The condition of the butter knife is influenced by the maintenance skill. It has a maximum condition of just 3 and will be damaged depending on the player's maintenance skill. The chance of losing durability is: 1 in (1 + maintenance x 2)

Repairing

A butter knife cannot be repaired.

Crafting

A butter knife can be used to drill a hole in a plank of wood, which can be used for survivalist fire-making.
