Switchblade, ultrathin

Starfinder Armory p.54

Level: 8
Price: 9100
Damage: 2d4 S
Bulk: L
Special: Analog, conceal, operative

This blade looks much like a single-edged survival knife when opened, but the blade can be folded or collapsed to fit within the grip, making it easier to conceal. A switch on the knife means the blade can be folded or extended as a swift action, or as part of making an attack or full attack. Most weapon manufacturers that offer daggers also produce switchblades, which are made in the same models: tactical, ultrathin, zero-edge, and molecular rift.

This weapon does not use any advanced electronics, computer systems, or electrical power sources. It is immune to abilities that target technology. While this use of the word “analog” is not technically correct when referring to technology, use of the term in this way has become common throughout the Pact Worlds.


An operative can use the trick attack class feature (see page 93) with a weapon that has this special property. Any character can add her Dexterity modifier rather than her Strength modifier on melee attack rolls with weapons with this special property.


A weapon with the conceal special property is considered especially small or easy to hide for purposes of Slight of Hand's hide object task, granting you a +4 circumstance bonus to skill checks to hide object.
