For an overview of knife models in the Fallout series of games, see knife.
Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The kitchen knife is a weapon that was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It also appears in the Van Buren tech demo.


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.
