Should You Level Up Knives?

Leveling Knives is not Recommended

It is not recommended to level knives. The knives as weapons can be weak and are the most effective when backstabbing. This will require a high sneak and items that can increase your sneak. Unless you are going for a sneaky build, it is not recommended to level up the knives skill.
