The Knife is a class of melee weapons featured in Battlefield V for all kits. Knives are unlocked by increasing the rank of each respective kit or through special challenges. All knives are statistically the same, having a damage output of 35 per hit. Knives also have the largest takedown range of all melee weapons. Unlike other melee weapons, knives cannot break windows or other small objects.
The jack knife was given to nearly every British soldier in World War II. It had a folding blade of about three inches, as well as a combined tin opener and screwdriver tool.

MKIII(S) Elite Combat Dagger
The MKIII(S) Elite Combat Dagger is a heavily modified German weapon, redesigned for lightness and versatility in survival situations and close combat. A tool appropriate for wilderness use as well as an instrument of death, this is an Operative's best (and sometimes only) friend in the field.
The Arditi were an elite unit of Italian shock troops during World War I. Disbanding after the war, they were notorious for employing daggers as their primary weapon.
While it's appearance is intimidating generally the points are blunted rather than sharp. This increased the utility of the design by allowing the weapon to be manipulated into various positions without the danger or harming oneself.
