| ||For an overview of knife models in the Fallout series of games, see knife.|
|The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
Serving its purpose in the kitchen before the Great War, it now functions as a small melee weapon that deals a moderate amount of damage. Initially, it can serve as a somewhat valuable loot item, making it a helpful find. It's also very good in the beginning of the game against rats and other small animals, like geckos.
- While it doesn't appear in the Van Buren tech demo, it is still present in the game files and can be spawned with the console command CreateEntity WeaponsKitchenKnife.wea.
