How to Obtain and Use the Butcher Knife in Valheim

    The update hearth and home de Valheim brought several new features to the game, and the Butcher’s Knife is one of them. So we at CodioDesk have decided to make this guide where we will teach you how to obtain and use the Butcher’s Knife in Valheim!

    How to Obtain and Use the Butcher Knife in Valheim

    Getting the knife

    As with all other weapons in Valheim, there is a cost to make the Butcher’s Knife. This new addition to the Hearth and Home update asks players to collect 2x Wood and 4x Tin. This is a relatively low price for most players and only requires the lowest level of the pickax. At the very least, players will have to defeat the first boss, Eikthyr, and will be able to create a Forge to make a Butcher’s Knife.

    Tin ore dots the riverbanks and coastlines of the Valheim Black Forest biome. Combining tin ore and coal in a smelter gives the player the necessary tin.

    The other material, wood, can be collected by picking up branches, felling trees, or destroying the wooden structures that dot the world. Once the necessary materials have been gathered, players can build a Butcher’s Knife in a forge.

    Using the knife

    The Butcher’s Knife in Valheim has an interesting feature: it can only be used to kill domesticated animals. As the name implies, this creation is used exclusively for slaughtering animals, so even wild animals are protected from it. This knife has the potential to inflict up to 500 wild damage with each hit, almost guaranteeing a quick kill for any of the many animal’s players can tame. This even includes the huge Lox de Valheim.

    Prior to the Valheim Hearth and Home update, any weapon could be used to kill animals, and players noted that this often led to accidental deaths. Now the Butcher’s Knife is the only way to kill animals in the game. Attacking a player’s tamed animals with any other weapon must not result in damage (unless a friendly fire is involved).

    In Valheim you are a warrior killed by battle, the Valkyries took your soul to Valheim, the tenth Nordic world. Surrounded by creatures of chaos and ancient enemies of the gods, you are the newest guardian of primordial purgatory, tasked with killing Odin’s ancient rivals and bringing order to Valheim.

    His trials begin in the unarmed peaceful center of Valheim, but the Gods reward the brave and glory awaits. Venture through towering forests and snow-capped mountains, explore and harvest valuable materials to create deadlier weapons, stronger armor, Viking strongholds, and outposts.

    The game has a huge procedural world and a cooperative PVE of up to 10 players, so you can have a lot of fun with your friends.
