Once players take control of Leon in Chapter 1, they will be able to use his Combat Knife to fight enemies. In addition to the Kitchen and Boot Knives scattered throughout each area, the Combat Knife is the most reliable tool for close-quarter combat at the start of the game. This is because of its robustness and power, however, better knives such as the Fighting Knife can be obtained when progressing through the game.

At the end of Chapter 14, Leon will prevail over Krauser and gain the Fighting Knife as a reward. This knife is distinct from the standard Combat Knife, offering a higher degree of durability and strength. However, if it is used too often, it can become damaged and require repairing. During the initial playthrough, the Fighting Knife is the only perpetual blade available.
