    The solution from DaveKinetic is ideal but if you missed this chance there are other easy ways.

    Under the melee skills in tier 5 you can purchase the executioner skill which allows you to stealth take-down the larger Freakers or even finish them with the knife after breaking a grapple if you time it correctly.

    Another way is to tag a Breaker with your binoculars which will bring up a health bar for the enemy. Then you can bring his health down until you are able to use your knife to finish him.

    To unlock the This is a Knife trophy in Days Gone, you will need to kill a Breaker, Reacher or Rager with a knife.

    The best place to unlock this trophy is during the story mission Playing All Night, where you enter the game's fourth region called Iron Butte for the first time. During the mission, you will encounter a Breaker that will display a health bar (normally they don't in the open-world).

    Use your normal weapons to weaken the Breaker, and make sure that the final blow comes from your knife.

    DrShoe1976Great guide, and just what I did. Be warned, this guy hits HARD, so make sure you have lots of healing items. I used 3 Molotovs and 2 Pipe Bombs to weaken him, then rifle fire and switched to the knife right at the end.

    SolaceCreedYou'll do this quicker with the Melee upgrade in tier 5 that allows you to do double damage with the boot knife.

    This video shows the easiest possible way to unlock this trophy. By completing it during the story mission 'MAYDAY! MAYDAY!' in the last third of the game you get a checkpoint immediately before attacking the bear. Should you die during the attempt the game will put you back to just before the fight. Also this bear has a health bar, so you don't need to guess how much health is left.
