The Bandit's Knife is a dagger in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This wide single-edged shortsword is the favorite of lowly thieves and bandits.
Primarily a slicing weapon, but highly effective when used for critical hits, such as after parrying or from behind.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Bandit's Knife deals low damage, but makes up for it in terms of critical rate. In terms of damage dealt per backstab/riposte, the Bandit's Knife is second only to the Thrusting Swords. The Bandit's Knife deals Bleed, unlike some other daggers. It can also be augmented with weapon buffs. Together, these traits make the Bandit's Knife the most versatile dagger in the game.

The Bandit's Knife's only real weakness (when compared to the other daggers) is its inability to deal thrusting damage. As with other daggers, the Bandit's Knife deals poor up-front damage when compared to other weapon classes.
