Obsidian Skinning Knife issue

Game mode: [Online | Multiplayer]
Problem: [Misc]
Region: [US]

I just learned the obsidian recipes last night and decided to make the tools today. Well, I can make all of the tools except the skinning dagger. Apparently I need the dagger handle to make a skinning knife, which doesn’t seem right to me. I can make a star metal skinning knife without the dagger handle.

Is this a bug, similar to how the lusttaker is wanting to be crafted on a blacksmiths bench rather than it’s proper location??

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Go to forge in Serpent temple.
  2. See recipe requiring dagger handle(which is what’s odd)
  3. ???
  4. Profit???
