 Dagger is a redundantly named Dagger Weapon in Demon's Souls. Daggers are small, nimble bladed weapons with rapid attacks and a horizontal slash + thrusting moveset. All Daggers have hidden Riposte and Backstab damage multipliers - the value for these is currently unknown.

A standard dagger.

A slashing weapon that inflicts heavy damage on soft flesh but has a limited effect on metal armor and hard scales.  Daggers are very effective after parrying, as well as in close-range stabs from behind.
