Daggers are a basic weapon, often used by adventurers who do not wish to wield large blades. They can be easily hidden and used in stealth as well.
- "A basic but versatile weapon, the dagger consists of a double-edged piercing blade that typically ranges from about six to 24 inches in length." (NWN "Examine" Description)
- "The typical dagger has a pointed, usually double-edged blade, as opposed to a knife, which has a single edge and is a bit shorter than the dagger." (Baldur's Gate description)
