The pocket knife is a tool item found in Stranded Deep.

The pocket knife is a loot item that acts as a upgraded version of the refined knife. The knife, though quick, cuts slower than larger tools, and so takes more time to accomplish tasks; this wastes a lot of the precious durability.

Previous to version 0.13, it was one of four starting items. Now, it is solely a loot item.

They can be found stored inside lockers or hard cases contained within shipwrecks.

The best way to maintain the pocket knife is to only use it to acquire lashings on the starter island, before crafting a crude axe to do the rest of the work. Alternatively, the player may use a rock shard for all of their daily tasks to save up on any tool's durability, as the rock shard can be used for any length of time without breaking.

Trivia Edit

  • Like other loot items, despite spending a considerable amount of time inside underwater shipwrecks, the pocket knives (excluding the player's first knife) manage to remain almost completely well-preserved, to the point where they can still be used to accomplish many tasks without a problem. Their appearances also appear nearly brand-new, again despite the length of time spent underwater.
  • In the current build, like most tools, up to four pocket knives can be stored in the same inventory slot, even if they each have varying degrees of durability.
