The Sacrificial Knife (死を呼ぶナイフ Shi wo yobu naifu, lit. Death-Summoning Knife) is a Dagger that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. Taking on the appearance of a sinister dagger with what appears to be a tooth dangling from a string twined around its hilt, the Sacrificial Knife, like its name suggests, saps the HP of its wielder following each round of combat. The Sacrificial Knife compensates for this effect by reducing the Luck, Defense and Resistance of enemy units by a substantial amount post-battle, as well as possessing an impressive 11 might. It also boasts a very strong hit rate, tied with the Quill Pen for the highest accuracy among dagger/shuriken-type weapons.
