First, I'm not familiar with the book. Second, it's missing some important information.

Can the knife function as a normal bladed weapon as long as it isn't used on anything that has a Hardness of 2 or more? [I'm assuming that it can puncture leather or hide armor since those have a hardness of 2]. It would be safe to use a letter opener for example would it not [unless you critically fumbled the use and broke the knife -- presuming you have to roll every time you use the knife].

Damage and Critical should be listed as "Special." The x2 critical isn't really a factor if it only has a Save or Die effect.

Can you throw the weapon (like a throwing knife) to avoid having it shatter in your hands when it hits its target?

If the target dies and the weapon doesn't break, can it be re-used?
