The Butcher Knife is a rare melee weapon found at food stores in civilian locations.
- It can be swung very quickly, enabling it to deal more damage than its stats would otherwise suggest.
- It is quite lightweight.
- It inflicts less damage-per-hit than either other type of knife.
- It is rarer than other types of knives.
- Its range is short, making it dangerous to use against zombies.
- Unlike the other two knives (the Pocketknife and Kitchen Knife), it is swung and held vertically.
- Butcher knives are also commonly referred to as cleavers.
