* While Asha Greyjoy of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is [[ActionGirl far from a timid and ladylike virgin]], she's still had to learn to defend herself in the NoWomansLand that is the Iron Islands (possibly more than most women, even, as her tomboyish attitude causes a lot of the men to want to [[RapePortrayedAsRedemption "put her in her place"]]). She keeps a dagger in VictoriasSecretCompartment and an axe by her side at all times, and refers to the latter as her "husband" whenever men make allusions about her being unmarried and thus available.

* ''Film/PansLabyrinth'': Mercedes carries such a knife. It's the same knife she uses to chop food in the kitchen, and she's [[{{Foreshadowing}} shown multiple times folding the knife back into her dress after she's done chopping vegetables]]. Her knife is not only used against her attacker, as is traditional, but also to cut through ropes binding get wrists.

* Fuu of ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' always carries around a tanto that she calls her "trusty maiden's dagger." It's clearly meant to serve this purpose, but she's laughably ineffective at using it.

* Played with in the Literature/SienkiewiczTrilogy. The first woman chooses to stab herself instead, the second one is easily disarmed, only for a henchman she had saved earlier to brain the villain with a blunt object and the third has no dagger but uses a pistol as an improvised blunt weapon and deals a hit that costs the villain an eye.

->''"Unappalled by the calm dignity of blameless womanhood, your minion has torn me from my spotless home, and dragged me, blindfold and shrieking, through hedges, over stiles, and across a very difficult country, and left me, helpless and trembling, at your mercy! Yet not helpless, coward sir, for approach one step -- nay, but the twentieth part of one poor inch -- and this poniard shall teach ye what it is to lay unholy hands on old Stephen Trusty's daughter!"''

An inversion almost as common as the trope itself is when the knife is for suicide rather than self-defensive--averting FateWorseThanDeath and invoking BetterToDieThanBeKilled.
