A sharp table knife, used for cutting steak. Serrated blade cuts any meat with ease. — In-game description

The Steak Knife is a multipurpose tool that can also be used as a bladed weapon in DayZ. The Steak Knife, along with the Hunting Knife and the Combat 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. While it has the same damage as the Kitchen Knife, it has a slightly shorter range.
