A double-edged fighting knife with a sharp point.
This weapon falls into the Short Blades category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is best used by the dexterous.

The dagger is the smallest combat short blade, extremely accurate but surpassed in terms of damage by the short sword. However, the dagger receives the largest stabbing bonus in the game. Backgrounds that lend themselves to a "stealth-and-stab" style of combat (such as assassins and enchanters) may go through the entire game with a dagger, as a skilled stabber with a good dagger can one-shot sleeping dragons and giants with ease.
