===[[14.01 Stranger in a Strange Land]]===
When they arrive at the diner in [[Detroit]] to meet with [[Kipling]] and rescue [[Castiel]], Sam hands Ruby's knife to [[Mary]] stating that it would be better if she takes it. After Mary and [[Bobby Singer (Apocalypse World)|Bobby]] ambush the restaurant, Mary throws the knife to Sam who turns to attack Kipling. During the fight between Sam and Kipling, they struggle for control of the knife which Sam ultimately loses. As Kipling comments that the knife is "cool," Sam suddenly grabs his arm and drives the knife into his chest, killing Kipling.
*In earlier seasons, the knife is generally called Ruby's Knife by the characters. Its referred to as just the Demon-Killing Knife by [[Mary Winchester]] in [[14.01 Stranger in a Strange Land]].
*Though the knife played a role as the Winchesters main demon killing weapon in the earlier seasons, it has lost its prevalence in the later seasons, particularly after the revelation that [[angel blade]]s can also kill demons. In the later seasons, the Winchesters use angel blades to kill demons more often the knife which then typically only appears once or twice a season.
*Throughout season 13, the Winchesters did not use the knife to kill demons at all, instead relying entirely on angel blades. Though the knife appeared in [[13.08 The Scorpion and the Frog]], the only demon killed with it was [[Grab]] by [[Luther Shrike]] while Luther was unharmed when Sam stabbed him with it. The knife was once again used by Sam in [[14.01 Stranger in a Strange Land]].
*Before Sam uses the knife to kill [[Kipling]] in [[14.01 Stranger in a Strange Land]], the last time either of the Winchesters used it to kill a demon was in [[12.12 Stuck in the Middle (With You)]] when Sam killed the male demon protecting [[Ramiel]].
