The Illustrious Knives are a craftable post-Moon Lord developer weapon that can also be dropped by Supreme Calamitas while in Expert Mode. It has both a rogue and melee variant. When used, the weapon launches a large spread of slow moving green knives, similar to the Vampire Knives. The knives are destroyed upon contact with tiles, but will rapidly accelerate and home in on nearby enemies. All knives will inflict Holy Flames upon striking an enemy.

When a knife hits an enemy, the player is healed by 1.5% of the damage dealt. This lifesteal is far stronger than either the Vampire or Empyrean Knives.

Its best modifier is Godly for the melee variant and Flawless for the rogue variant.
