- "Thus the Starks took it upon themselves to unify the North... under them. They drove the pirates out of White Knife and claimed the eastern coast."
- ―Roose Bolton
The White Knife is a river in the North. It consists of two rivers, one originating in Long Lake and the other in hills to the east, which come together north-east of Winterfell. The river runs south into the Bite, with the city of White Harbor located at its mouth.
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels the White Knife has two branches, one originating in the Lonely Hills and the other in Long Lake. The White Knife is the primary waterway of the North and one of its most important methods of transportation.
A separate tributary originates in the west, near the edge of the Wolfswood and Winterfell, but it is not part of the White Knife itself.
