Throwing Daggers are ranged weapons that are held in one hand. They can be equipped in weapon slots instead of ammunition slots, like darts and throwing axes. They deal 1d4 damage, and have a weight of 1 lb. for each ten daggers, and two can be thrown each round at a range of 30'. They fall under the proficiency of Small Swords in Baldur's Gate and Daggers in the other games. This item appears in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur's Gate II and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. Clerics can't use them. Throwing daggers can be bought from weapon stores and some skeletons use them as weapons.
The typical throwing dagger has a pointed, usually double-edged blade, as opposed to a knife, which has a single edge and is a bit shorter than a dagger. Unlike a dagger, this one has a smaller handle and is balanced differently.
