First off, see Solution for Dogged in Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper (EU) and be sure not to miss to follow that solution before you tackle this achievement (if you haven't got that achievement already).

Moving on! During the story you'll have to do an experiment to determine the killers weapon, you'll have 4 different knives and a pigs head to work with, you'll have to do 3 experiments but they're all essentially the same thing, pick up the a knife a make a cut, next knife and so on.

Each time you cut the pigs head Holmes will make some kind of remark, which is supposed to be your clue as to whether to hit the check box for the knife or not, to save you from that hassle, here are the knives you should select on each experiment;

Experiment 1
* Knife 1
* Knife 4

Experiment 2
* Knife 2
* Knife 3
* Knife 4

Experiment 3
* Knife 1
* Knife 3
* Knife 4

As you can see, knife 4 gets consistently ticked, it's the killers weapon!

If you find yourself stuck on a particular part of the game be sure to check out this excellent video walkthrough of the entire game, the users youtube channel can be found here; Alternatively I've linked in the first video below and you can use that to reach his channel.
