Knucklehead trout are a hardheaded fish.


It's bones are similar to ivory, and well-suited as the raw material for scrimshaw.

Inhabitants of the Ten Towns of Icewind Dale fish for it in Maer Dualdon and Lac Dinneshire, both as a source of food, and in order to craft scrimshaw – which they export to the South and which represents a major pillar of their economy.


The in-game "Knucklehead Trout" item has no use, except that the party needs to give one to Damien to complete the quest Damien's fish.
