A Nullabist Knife is a throwing weapon designed by Martellus von Blitzengaard. It is coated with a substance which paralyzes the target when successfully inserted; according to Tweedle, after that, within a half an hour it contaminates and liquefies the body and reduces it to "dust on the wind", thereby precluding its owner being revived. We see one in action when Tweedle uses it on a pursuing Tarvek while dragging an unwilling Agatha into the depths of the Red Cathedral in Mechanicsburg. Fortunately for Tarvek, Baron Wulfenbach more or less simultaneously activates his time-stopping Take-Five Bomb, and when Gil finally manages to extract Tarvek from the Bomb's area of effect, having been warned of the poisoning by Agatha[citation needed], he is able to successfully administer an unnamed cure.

Speculation and Theories[]

The name could either be from German null "zero", bist "are" ("you're nothing"); or Latin, nulla "there!", bis "twice" ("way gone").[mad theory]
