|Penknife [n.m.] : A small pocket knife with a blade that can be hidden for safety purposes. If you're the one carrying it, you should do likewise...|
|Guard Weapon (5 attack pts)|
The pathetic penknife is quite a poor quality weapon with a less than 100% chance of killing a zombie with each attack. It might save you if you get stuck with a few zombies around you, but I wouldn't count on it killing more than two zombies before it breaks.
- Killing Zombies (Do not depend on it to kill zombies, it may even break without killing any at all)
- Opening a Toolbox or a Food Parcel.
- Needed for the Level 2 upgrade to the Kitchen in your Home.
- Guard weapon, 5 attack pts.
