The Tribalman's shiv (with suspect spelling) "leaves a seeping wound upon striking an enemy, which for 6 seconds after being inflicted. However, the knife itself deals 50% less damage as a trade-off." This could be a good way of making the Sniper more of a threat in melee, but the kukri was always pretty powerful with a long range to help. We'll see.
