The hook-knife is a brawling weapon sporting a rapidly tapering blade that is wide at its base and usually quite thin in cross-section. The blade extends two-to-three inches before bending sharply 90 degrees and tapering quickly to a point. Seen most often in "sporting" pits in waterfront dives, the weapon is used almost exclusively in a slashing type of attack, but it is also capable of doing puncture damage.

When compared to the OHE dagger, the hook-knife is somewhat superior against all armor groups except chain and plate.
