The Butcher Knife is an axe in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Giant butcher knife wielded by the Undead man-eating cook lurking in the Depths. More a tool for subduing and preparing live catches than an actual weapon.
Those who have faced this deadly blade have a deeper sense of how helpless prey must feel.

AvailabilityEdit

Dropped by the red phantom Maneater Mildred, who invades players that are unhollowed near the end of Blighttown provided that Chaos Witch Quelaag is undefeated.

CharacteristicsEdit

Similarly to Server, the Butcher Knife restores a small amount of HP per hit (five HP). It has the highest scaling of the axes and only scales with Strength, making it the strongest axe for Strength builds. It also has decent range, approximately the same as a Black Knight Greataxe. However, its disadvantages include a slow attack speed, especially for its strong attacks, and heavy weight. Indeed, its attack is slower than the above-mentioned Black Knight Greataxe.
