Knives are useful for cutting tallgrass and cattails. It's very important to craft a knife as soon as possible to cut tallgrass in order to build a firepit and cattails to make early game storage items.
There are several variants that you can craft. Each variant has a different durability and attack power. A stone knife head can be crafted via knapping and the metal variants have to be crafted using smithing.
