John's Knife is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2. It cannot be customized.


Owned by John Marston, this sturdy hunting knife combines a deadly clip-point blade with a narrow wooden handle. It is slightly smaller than the default Hunting Knife, although it performs just the same.

Along with his revolver, John can be seen with this weapon in 1899 during his time in the gang.


Marston uses it during "Jim Milton Rides, Again?", though it becomes available after the mission "Motherhood".



  • The compendium’s description of this weapon says that this knife is useful for "fighting off wolves on a snowy mountainside", referencing John’s failure to do so during Chapter 1 in “Enter, Pursued by a Memory”.
  • Despite being the hunting knife of John Marston, it does not appear in Red Dead Redemption and is replaced by a larger Bowie knife.
