The typical throwing dagger has a pointed, usually double-edged blade, as opposed to a knife, which has a single edge and is a bit shorter than the dagger. Unlike a normal dagger, this one has a smaller handle and is balanced for throwing. It is also enchanted to make it more effective in combat. Since the throwing dagger is designed differently than a normal dagger, it is not very effective as a melee weapon.
