The Knife is an item in the SNES and PC releases of Mario's Time Machine. It is a kitchen knife that belongs to Anne Hathaway (despite the image for it resembling a sword). Anne first mentions that she is missing it while talking to a time-traveling Mario in Stratford-upon-Avon. She says that she needs to prepare a goose, but she cannot continue without her tools. Mario finds the knife in the possession of Richard Burbage, who suddenly gives it to him while saying that it needs to be brought to her, and Mario does just that. She initially confused it for a dagger (while quoting William Shakespeare's Macbeth: "Is this a dagger which I see before me, / The handle toward my hand?") before realizing that it is her Knife, and appreciatively takes it. She then remembers that she lent it to Richard as a prop, and in return, she gives Mario a Feather that Richard needs for his costume and tells Mario to bring it to him.
