The cosmic knife clean is a melee weapon almost identical in appearance to the standard variant, except all the cloud residue has been cleaned off, revealing a smooth, shiny blade. The cosmic knife clean's chief benefit is that it inflicts triple damage on limbs, twice that of the unclean original and nearly twice that of the super-heated version. It also features a slightly higher base damage and critical chance.

The cosmic knife clean can successfully strike about 995 times from full condition before breaking.
This weapon must be crafted by the player. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.

Behind the scenesEdit
|The following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
Shape and texture resources for the cosmic knife, its clean, and super-heated variant are all present in the files of Old World Blues add-on, but not used. Though present, no objects in the add-on use these resources. Curiously the resources are stored within the nvdlc01 folder used by the Dead Money add-on, rather than the nvdlc03 folder allocated to Old World Blues.
