The Kitchen Knife (simply known as the Knife) is a melee weapon that appears in the Hitman series. It can be used for close-quarter combat and stealth kills. In Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Absolution and HITMAN™, it is also used as a throwing weapon.
Hitman: Codename 47
Gameplay-wise, the kitchen knife has exactly the same move-set as other short-bladed weapons, such as the Pentagon Knife, including stabbing and throat slitting. It may come in handy since it is available in most levels that have a kitchen.
- The Massacre at Cheung Chau Fish Restaurant - Can be found in the kitchen of the restaurant. This knife is bugged, and if holstered, will vanish entirely.
- The Lee Hong Assassination - Can be found in the kitchen.
- Traditions of the Trade - Found in the kitchen.
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
The kitchen knife functions quite similar to the knife found in Hitman: Codename 47.

- Anathema - In the kitchen.
- Invitation to a Party - Found in the lower levels of the building where the chef is.
- Tracking Hayamoto - In the room where the fugu fish resides.
In Hitman: Contracts, the kitchen knife gains additional animations for stealth kills. Additionally, you can use kitchen knife to get rid of small animals such as dogs without wasting ammunition.
- Asylum Aftermath - Found on a patient butchering a No. 48 clone and on the second floor.
- The Meat King's Party - Found almost everywhere.

- The Seafood Massacre - Either with the chef in the kitchen or nearby him.
- The Lee Hong Assassination - Used by a chef in the kitchen.
Hitman: Blood Money
In Hitman: Blood Money, the functionality of the kitchen knife mimics that of Hitman: Contracts. As Blood Money introduced the ability to throw items, the knife could be used to kill characters at a distance via the normal throwing controls. As with all other thrown objects it can act as a distraction.
- Death of a Showman - In the room with two gangsters snorting cocaine, stuck on the closet door.

- Death on the Mississippi - Restaurant Deck, in the kitchen with the cake for Muldoon.
- Amendment XXV - In the East Wing's kitchen. The knife is found on the counter.
- Requiem - In the tool shed, southeast of the church.
In Hitman: Absolution the knife acquired additional functionality. Stealth kills made using the knife are relatively quiet in comparison to a gunshot, however, if another NPC is close to the one being killed, they may hear a struggle and investigate. Similarly, if an NPC is killed using a knife, a blood pool will be left at the location of the action; other NPCs will become suspicious after being discovered. Additionally, because of the new melee weapon system expansion, the knife can be thrown and subsequently retrieved and used multiple times. As in Hitman: Blood Money thrown knives can distract guards and kill them.

The knife functions similarly to the one in Absolution, you can use it as a melee weapon to silently kill targets from behind or throw it to execute targets from afar.
There are two knives in the basement. One is located inside the kitchen, which is the most south western room, lying on top of the bench along the southern wall. There is also one inside the lunch room, which is the most eastern room with entrances both into the northern and southern corridors, lying on top of the bench along the eastern wall.
On the ground floor you can find as many as three kitchen knives inside the kitchen itself, which is the room to the west of the large northern room (bar area). There is also one in the bar room as well, lying on the north side of the small area in between the bar disk and the door leading to the kitchen. The only knife outside of Palais de Walewska can be found in the area just east of the south western shed on the outskirts of the palace, just south of the stairs which leads down to the basement. The only knife on the second floor is located in the most south western room of the floor where there are stairs going down and there are NPC staff who are preparing food.
