Judging from the scene, it's obviously used as a variant of ダーン. It's not a common onomatopoeia, and I don't think I have seen this elsewhere. Mangaka often create original onomatopoeias, and I think this is another example.

  • @NinoskaMiranda Typically, ダーン is the sound of a basketball hit on the wall/ground. It's not the sound of cutting something with a knife.
