Knives Master

Ever wanted to use daggers on your main hand?

Well I got you covered. That's exactly what this mod does! You can craft every dagger on survival crafting with one thick oil and your got yourself a Knife for your main hand. To reverse any knife back to normal dagger just craft it with linen cloth!

Ever wanted to enchant your daggers?

I got you there too! All daggers and knives are now able to be enchanted the same way any other weapon does!

Ever wanted more daggers to choose from?

Yeah that happened too! Now there are even more new daggers fitted into the vanilla weapon families! Some vanilla daggers got renamed and adjusted to fit those famillies and their style, some are removed vanilla daggers that I brought back to life, some are custom recolored daggers and some are brand new daggers with new custom models contributed by Gothiska, many thanks to him!!! (Also there are many new Legacy daggers and knives.)

Ever wanted to play like an Assassin?

Then Master Razon awaits you to meet him in your journeys to Aurai. Master Razon will teach you the tricks of Knives and the way of the Assassin, you will find him in Berg near the Assassin Trader.

You want more weapons and armors?

After Updated Version 3.0.2 this mod is fully compatible with "WeaponBalancePatch version:1.4" Mod of Proboina and I highly recommend it for more interesting weapons stats and effects!

Also if you want the new weapons and armors aswell download "Weaponry and Enchantments Additions" and "Armory Additions" too. I recommend them for a full weaponry experience. ;)

Future plans

More balance, even more custom daggers.


To report any bugs join Outward Modding Community on Discord and leave your commend on stormcancer-workshop Channel! Thanks a lot!


Again many thanks to Gothiska for the amazing 3d models. Many thanks to Proboina for his contributions on Nightmare Dagger and creation of Crescent Dagger! Also thanks a lot to Emo for his HUGE help on making and learning how to mod, and thanks to all the Outward Modding Community for there help and ideas!

Enjoy! :)
