Bugs

  • Due to a glitch with the jigglebones, this weapon's viewmodel will occasionally twist up, giving a deformed look.

Trivia

  • This item's name and description are a word play on two different meanings of the word "shank", one being a cut of meat, the other being a makeshift knife or shiv.
  • The Ham Shank is also a usable weapon in "Don't Starve", the game where the weapon comes from.
  • The term "ham" can be used to describe an over-the-top actor and exaggerated emotions.
