The Book of Knives

The Book of Knives


Romantics choose a sword. Barbarians choose an axe. Maniacs choose a hammer. But the truly practical among us choose a knife.

Easy to conceal, efficient to use, and simple to dispose of, daggers offer the shortest, surest path to success for those with steady enough nerves to get within arm’s reach of their quarry. Given that power over life and death can be realized in something as inexpensive and easy to procure as a curved bit of metal or bone, there’s something darkly democratic about a small blade. No wonder it’s been the tool of choice for revolutionaries and assassins since the dawn of time.


THE BOOK OF KNIVES is a collection of rare and legendary blades by CopperHorde's Chris Sagovac & Luke CJ Smith for Dungeon Masters to incorporate into their campaigns. Each weapon comes with an illustration and an extensive backstory, lovingly crafted to add intrigue and mystery to any game setting.

Among the artifacts included here:

  • The Brass Fang – the weapon of choice for mummy hunters.
  • Uldhrul's Kiss – a non-magical blade scientifically designed to cleave soul from body.
  • The Jile of Sight – which enables the bearer to see the past through its victim's eyes.
  • Al Raqsa – the dual-headed "dancing blades" wielded by magic carpet pilots.
  • The Death Cap Dirk – a fungal blade favored by myconid assassins.
  • And many more!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
