A Throwing Knife is a consumable item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Throwing knife with a finely serrated blade. One of of the old hunter Henryk's favorite weapons.
Does not cause a great deal of damage to beasts, but with deft use, can distract attackers and keep them at bay.



Throwing Knives can be used to deal moderate damage, but should be used mostly as a more accurate and deadlier Pebble.

It can stagger and lightly knock back enemies.

It isn’t as effective against hostile NPC hunters, as most will dodge with ease.


  • Scales mostly with Skill. As such, players who focus on this stat the most will reap the most benefits.
  • Though it deals damage, it is quite mediocre. It can instead be used more as a better, more accurate version of the Pebble to draw attention from foes.


  • Though this weapon was a favorite of Henryk, it seems odd that it would scale with Skill, seeing as he wields the Saw Cleaver, a Strength based weapon.
  • The Henryk's Hunter Garb has a sheathe for a Throwing Knife. If players throw a knife with the set on, they will see that the sheathe aligns perfectly with the animation of the player pulling out a Throwing Knife from their body. The same holds true for Poison Knives.
  • The actual in-game model of the Throwing Knife is different from the icon that is displayed. It features a curved blade with a guard.
