The Falcon Knife Earrings (or simply Falcon Knife, also called Needle Earrings) is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest franchise. Like its larger variant, the falcon knife earrings attack twice per turn. However, they can only be wielded by female characters in most installments, and possess a lower attack bonus. To compensate for this, both strikes can inflict critical hits, be amplified by oomph and Focus Strength, and do not suffer the percentage reduction of the sword.
