The Knife Gloves is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, made by combining these items:

  1. Boxing Gloves
  2. Bowie Knife

This combo weapon has been described as:

"These work like Wolverine's claws, without all the angst about being immortal. Cut zombies to ribbons! Wearing the hidden Blanka mask makes this even more awesome."[1]

This weapon has a 4-hit "light" combo, which consists of very sharp "slaps". The Combo-Card-restricted heavy attack is a heavy punch/slap. As a single slap from this is frequently enough to do away with any zombies (and indeed, does a lot of damage), the heavy attack is close to pointless.

Many players have stated that the knife gloves are the closest equivalent to the Small Chainsaw in Dead Rising, and the best weapon to kill a psychopath. The knife gloves are easy to come by when a player knows where the parts are and do a decent amount of damage. Also they last a lot longer then the Laser Sword.[2][3]


  • This weapon can be used against Sullivan without him disarming Chuck, as he would with any other weapon in melee combat.
  • This weapon cannot be thrown, and instead Chuck will block. It is unclear whether this will actually block anything.
  • No survivor will accept this if you offer it to them.
