The Combat Knife is one of the most basic weapons in the Resident Evil DBG. The knife is part of what the game refers to as "Basic Resources" and is present in all in-game scenarios. The knife does the weakest amount of damage in the base set unless it is in the hands of Jack Krauser, who's abilities allow him to not only gain knives at the beginning of the player's turn but also increase the damage of each knife he wields. The knife pile of the Resource Area has a special weapon at the bottom; the Survival Knife. This knife adds +5 damage to itself for every Knife type weapon the player uses.
