"I like your knife. I'm keeping it."
"...That was my favorite knife."
Drax and Moloka Dar[src]

Drax the Destroyer's Knives are Drax the Destroyer's primary weapons in combat.



The pair of knives belonging to Drax the Destroyer were forged from a tempered metal alloy in Drax’s homeworld of Kylos. They were decorated with the same kind of tribal markings that cover Drax's body.[1]


In 2014, the knives were taken from him when he was imprisoned by the Nova Corps on the Kyln. During his escape, he retrieved them along with his other belongings.[2]

Duel on Knowhere

Drax the Destroyer prepares to battle Ronan the Accuser

Seeking to destroy Ronan the Accuser, Drax had used his knives to threaten the Knowhere Dispatcher, forcing him to send a message to Ronan to bring him there. Once Ronan arrived with his army of the Sakaarans, Drax greeted him with his knives ready. During their battle, Drax was unable to land a killing blow against Ronan, and was eventually disarmed and defeated.[2]

Battle of Xandar

During the Battle of Xandar, Drax used his knives to battle with Korath and the Sakaarans inside the Dark Aster.[2]

Fighting the Abilisk

Months later, Drax used his knives on Sovereign during the Guardians' fight against the Abilisk. In an attempt to kill the Abilisk, Drax used his knives to try and cut through the creature from the inside.[3]

Battle of Titan

Four years later, Drax used the knives to attack Doctor Strange, Peter Parker, and Tony Stark on the destroyed Q-Ship on Titan. However, Strange deflected them using a Tao Mandalas. Later, Drax used the knives to battle Thanos on Titan, with him notably landing a strike that even if only barely, injured Thanos minorly and caused him to flinch. He then dueled Thanos alongside Strange who used Eldritch Magic to craft a sword to allow him to fight Thanos. However, Drax's use of his knives was only effective for a short period, as Thanos swiftly overwhelmed him and incapacitated him briefly with a powerful punch that send him through stones even though Drax used his knives to block it. The knives later disintegrated with Drax.[4]

Battle of Earth

In 2023, as a result of the Blip, Drax was restored to life and his knives rematerialised with him. He then used them during the battle at the destroyed Avengers Compound, fighting against Cull Obsidian.[5]
