The Knifewood is a nearly impenetrable forest of thorny trees, razor-sharp bushes and tangle weeds, which forms the eastern border of Gwynne.

The forest has only a few small passages cut through the thick undergrowth. The largest of these is the Stoneway road, which is overgrown through much of the forest. The eastern edge of the Knifewood lies near a swampy marshland east of the Sür, and many of the water surfaces in this region burn and smoke from chemicals and foul pollutants.

The independent freehold of Taraghon is located in the Knifewood, as are several secluded settlements of Wood-Elves and scattered colonies of gnomes
