This article is about the Thermoblade. You may be looking for the Survival Knife.

The Thermoblade is a tool and an upgrade to the Survival Knife. It is crafted by using the Modification Station.

In general, it can be used for harvesting or defense. Its primary function is that it cooks any edible fish in one swipe.

If a Bleeder latches onto the player's arm, the player can use the Thermoblade to hit the Bleeder.

The Thermoblade actually deals less damage than the Survival Knife, doing 20 and 25 damage respectively. Despite this, the Thermoblade is capable of killing all edible fauna in one hit, whilst the Survival Knife will take two hits to kill certain small fish like the Garryfish or Spadefish.

Lava Lizards are immune to the Thermolade's effects, presumably due to their own skin being adapted to extreme temperatures far surpassing the tool.

  • Markings on the Thermoblade indicate that it was made by "Alterra Arms Incorporated".
  • The boiling water effect is tied to the Thermoblade itself rather than the environment it is in. As a result, even when the player is in a base or above the surface, the blade will still appear to be surrounded by boiling water.
  • The Thermoblade once had durability, but it was removed due to durability being deemed useless.
    • When the Thermoblade did have durability, it had the lowest durability out of all the knives.
