The Real Knife is a weapon item found in Asgore's Home. Plot-wise, it is the Worn Dagger as seen through the lens of a Genocide Route. Its defensive counterpart is The Locket. It is the Genocide Route weapon item associated with the first human, and is implied to belong to them. 

Its existence is foreshadowed in the Ruins near the beginning of the Genocide Route, with the first instance of the route's red text. Name-wise, it contrasts with the Toy Knife found in the Ruins.

Trivia

  • If the Real Knife is hacked into the inventory on a non-Genocide Route and is equipped, most monsters can be spared on the first turn (even most non-spareable monsters,) meaning that the monsters fear the hostile nature of the weapon.
  • Despite being the strongest weapon in the game, it never sees any real use without hacking as Sans, the last enemy of a Genocide Route, has only 1 HP. The same applies to The Locket, the strongest armor in the game (as the last enemy removes the player's INV through KARMA).
  • The Real Knife could possibly be a reference to Mother 3's Real Bat, since both weapons are found before the final battle and wielded by someone before the protagonist.
