Due to the Thief's combat effectiveness being so dependent on positioning, he's probably stuck with taking down a skeleton every two or three turns if he has a bunch of Expert Backstabbing. If he doesn't, not so good.
Also, you know you can swing a large knife, or even better, use a short baton with Knife skill, right, at the same damage as a large knife (or, more likely, if he has a lot of Backstabber, a Kukri).
