Itís actually better than that, as itís any weapon used with the knife or main gauche skill. So all knives, the Jutte and Sai, the short baton, and wooden stakes for your vampire hunting needs.

Though arguably not when thrown, as that's a distinct skill (it should just be errataed to include thrown weapon(knife)).

It specifies 'any blade': I wouldn't include these as blades, personally.

"If a weapon within your class can be thrown, all relevant benefits also apply when throwing it." Adventurers p.54.

Does this include wielding Wesley Snipes using the knife skill? Might be OP.

As Mr. Snipes acting is wooden, clearly his Blade is a staff/baton class weapon despite the name.

Don't ever underestimate the value of a swing for the foot. A man who can't stand is a man who can't fight well.
