Holding the box cutter. June 3rd, 2016.

The box cutter is a weapon in Yandere Simulator.


In the game, the box cutter was found by the school entrance for debugging purposes, but was relocated to the Art Club in the November 15th, 2016 Build.[1] The box cutter can be concealed and is not seen as suspicious, so Yandere-chan's reputation will not be damaged if she is seen carrying one.
