Sharp combat knife with a sturdy blade and a handle. Great for self-defense, but it has other, more mundane uses as well. — In-game description

The Combat Knife is a bladed melee weapon and multipurpose tool in DayZ Standalone. The Combat Knife, along with the Hunting Knife and the Steak Knife, has the distinctive ability to be stored inside of Assault Boots, saving inventory space or, if used as the primary melee weapon, making the player's profile smaller. This ability, combined with its solid damage output and multiple uses as a tool, make the Combat Knife one of the best melee weapons in the game.
