Valheim Flint Knife

To make a Flint Knife in Valheim, you’re going to need to craft a Workbench first. Once you do that, your next task is to gather the necessary resources. Aside from the Flint, the materials are abundant and easy to get. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 Flint
  • 2 Wood
  • 2 Leather Scraps

The Flint Knife is definitely a step up from the earliest weapons that you can get. It’s pretty fast, and weighs only 0.3. It doesn’t do as much damage as, say, the Copper Knife, but still, it’s a valuable tool to have, especially early on. It takes about four hits or so to bring down a Greydwarf, so use that as a gauge.
