They are used to shatter the orbs containing the pieces of Dracula or thrown in a manner similar to the dagger, only much slower. Any monsters in the stake's path is killed on contact regardless of defensive strength.
In vampire folklore, pounding an oak stake into a vampire's heart is said to be the quintessential method of killing one, thus this item's inclusion amidst other weapons and artifacts that can slay the undead. Strangely, though, the oak stake has no effect on Dracula during the final battle; it will simply fly through him harmlessly.
