The Dagger is a dagger in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This standard small dagger has only a modest attack but can be jabbed in rapid succession, and is effective in critical hits such as after a parry or when stabbing in the back.
With both slash and thrust attacks this dagger is useful in various situations.

AvailabilityEdit

The Dagger is one of the starting weapons of the Sorcerer class. It can also be purchased from the Undead Male Merchant for 300 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Dagger is the most basic type of dagger. It deals low damage with normal attacks and has poor reach, but makes up for it with fast swing speeds and high backstab and riposte damage. The Dagger also has the advantage of using very little stamina and it is light weight, making it appropriate for characters with low endurance.
