"PLEEEEAASE", the man cries...

Daniel mockingly killing a prisoner during a murderous ritual.

The Dagger is a ceremonial knife, used only once in Amnesia: The Dark Descent as an optional item.


The item is a sharp knife with a crooked shape. Its design is perhaps inspired by the kris, an Indonesian dagger.


Found laying on the table from the prison cell location of the Choir Entrance, Daniel can obtain the Dagger during the start of the interactive flashback. Daniel uses it to carve the lines into the prisoner's flesh, killing him. The intent of the killing was to ward off The Shadow.


  • The Dagger has an inventory icon and description that reads: "A blade meant for cutting and skinning." However, because the inventory cannot be accessed during the flashback sequence, the text goes unseen in normal gameplay.
