item history

i can't remember if learning the key knowledge of an item gives u a idea of what that item does?

like if a dagger ranks only increases it damage or if ranks increase talents like spellcasting?

Player's Guide page 223:

When a character learns the Test Knowledge of an item’s Key Knowledge, he also learns the magical effect granted at that rank. The gamemaster is free to determine whether the character learns the exact details at this stage or if he learns the general type of effect only.
