The Combat Knife, or Knife, is a common melee weapon in the Jagged Alliance series.

Jagged Alliance

"A serrated knife with a seven-inch, carbon-steel blade and a handprint-leather handle design for that confident grip." - Knife, Jagged Alliance"
—Official in-game description of the Knife
"A special issue, paramilitary, nine-inch stainless steel, serrated knife. The blade has been bead-blasted for a non-reflective finish and is set in a green, hard-plastic, camoflauged handle."
—Official in-game description of the Combat knife

Jagged Alliance and Deadly Games had two types of knife available, one simply called a "Knife" and the other a "Combat Knife", with the Combat Knife being more reliable, and dealing slightly more damage. These knives were the only option for melee combat in these games.

Equipping a knife is also the only way to prevent the Metavira Eels of Metavira from drowning your mercs.
