This melee weapons feature a dark and grayish texture with the sharped edged model that is just the same to the dual knives of the Shadows that are located at their back on the waist. This weapon shares animation with the Stealth Assassin Sword, but the 2 slashes are much faster (and the first slash is also very fast, about equal to the BC-Axe). The secondary attack is also unique in which player character stab both knives forward (like the Kris), resulting in one-hit kill anywhere on the body. It has the longest slash range of all melee weapons (as proved here from 2:30 to 3:00), but for balancing reasons it has a narrow secondary attack sweep area, since it wil only hit two enemies (as shown here from 5:36 to 5:51) instead of four as the majority of the melee weapons, making it more suitable to deal with one target at a time instead of a group of enemies packed close to each other.
- This weapon was the most requested melee weapon, since the players think that it is useless to see that a Shadow is bringing three melee weapons, yet the the two melee weapons, which are the Shadow Knives, are at their backs only as a design, and it seems very useless. Somehow, Tencent QQ fullfilled the request the players had.
- Before the 2.0 update, preview image in Black Market in CF Vietnam shows only one knife instead of two, but the item icon correctly shows 2 knives. This is presumably a texture glitch.
- CF Vietnam's description claims that this weapon belongs to Shadow Warriors, leading people to believe that it's only available when playing Shadow Mode. In reality, it functions like any other Melee weapon and can be used in all game modes.
