Orcish knives are one of the basic types of Weapon in ADOM. They have default stats of (+0, 1d3+2), though these do vary from time to time.

Desirability[edit source]

They are useful until a better weapon is found, and superior to regular daggers. Due to how easily you can get them they are favorites of thrown daggers users, such as an early game Assassin, who will gather stacking knives to equip in the missile slot.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Orcs will throw one at you if you wait long enough, and only sometimes can be looted for their knives after death. To ensure you get as many of these as possible (if you want them), wait until each orc has thrown his or her knife at you.
