The knife spear takes some time to make but is entirely doable for early survivors. You can find the recipe under weapons in the crafting menu (&).

Begin by finding a heavy stick, easily obtained in a forest or by smashing apart a window. A window will also provide you with string and a sheet. Cut the sheet into rags.

  • To cut the sheet up you might need to make a Makeshift knife. You can disassemble the long string from the curtains, or find some withered plants from searching undergrowth; then make a spike for the knife.

You must then make a spike for the tip (found under misc. in the crafting menu).

Pick up a rock from outside and smash a locker or two to gain 9 scrap metal or 3 chunk of steel. Use the rock as your improvised hammer to crank out a twisted, metal spike.

Once you have obtained all four components you can then fashion a knife spear. Unfortunately you won't be able to hold all components in your inventory so it is best to leave them in a pile or have each accessible in a square adjacent to you.

This weapon has 16 pierce dmg, and 2 bash. It can make reach attacks (2 range)
