This short blade weapon was built using ceramic. It has limited range but comes out fast.

The Ceramic Dagger is a dagger with the highest attack speed of all single daggers coupled with good status chance, but has otherwise low stats and deals no DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.

The Ceramic Dagger can be sold for Credits64.png 5,000.

  • Zero DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage and short reach makes this weapon ill-advised for use against the Infested, even when modded with elemental damage.
  • Ceramic Dagger seems to confer a much higher speed boost with slide attacks than most melee weapons.
  • When equipped, the Ceramic Dagger adds a 4th lunging stab to its normal attack combo, which propels the Warframe a good distance forward, which is useful in catching up to moving enemies. It also has a 100% chance of inflicting DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash bleed proc. This effect is lost if one uses the Mod TT 20px.png Pointed Wind stance, which replaces the lunge with a sweeping slash.
    • If the lunge lands behind an unalerted enemy, a stealth attack will be performed instead.


  • Prior to Update 22.20 (2018-05-17), the Ceramic Dagger shared its model with the Cronus.png Cronus, only scaled down and with a much lower-resolution texture. It was eventually given a similar-but-unique model that resembles a scaled-down Scimitar in shape.
  • The blueprint used to drop from Jupiter's boss J3-Golem, however this method of obtaining the blueprint is no longer available.
  • Ironically, despite having a weapon with an overly-curved blade that would be ideal for slashing but highly impractical for stabbing, the Ceramic Dagger deals mainly DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture and no DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.
