The Commando Knife is a type of knife issued to the commandos of the 26 RTI Special Tactics Group.
After the commandos of the 26 RTI Special Tactics Group completed training, they were given these knives as part of a sign of their completion of training and to use in the field. In particular, Private Dominic Santiago was proud to show the knife to his wife as proof of his accomplishment.
In 17 A.E., during the Mission to Mercy, Sergeant Marcus Fenix had trouble opening a jammed lever on an Imulsion pipeline. Without a word, Dom handed Marcus his knife to use as a lever. With the help of the knife, Marcus was able to open the valve and found that Dom had moved on when Marcus turned to return the knife to him. Thinking nothing of it, Marcus hung onto the commando knife to return it to Dom later. Shortly afterwards, Dom sacrificed himself to destroy the Savage Locust and Lambent forces besieging Delta Squad. Marcus never had the chance to return Dom's knife to him so it remained in Marcus' possession after Dom's death.
At the conclusion of the Second Battle of Azura, Queen Myrrah, the leader of the Locust Horde, emerged from the remains of her dead Tempest. Marcus ordered the members of Delta Squad not to fire, something Queen Myrrah took as act of morality and mercy. As Queen Myrrah taunted him, Marcus got in close to her and stabbed the Locust Queen in the heart with Dom's commando knife, telling her "feel that? That's from Dom and everyone else you killed you bitch!" After Marcus pushed her off the knife, Queen Myrrah died on the roof of Pinnacle Tower in a pool of her own blood. After killing Queen Myrrah, Marcus stared at the knife and Myrrah's blood on it for a moment.
