Trivia Edit

  • In real life, knives have various purposes. In general, they serve as tools, utensils, and weapons.
  • In regards to the Khukuri, Khukuri (or Kukri) is a Nepalese knife used both as a tool and a weapon. In real life, they serve as utility tools in traditions and are used by some militaries such as the Nepalese Army and India's Gorkha Regiments.
  • Rais uses a Short Simple Knife on Dr. Zere by stabbing him with it.
  • For the Mighty Khukuri, it is misspelled as "Mighty Khukri" in-game.
  • Oddly, both the Simple Knife and Exquisite Short Knife's variants introduced in The Following both share the same names of Extravagant Knife and Fabulous Knife.
