Knives Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia

A knife is a metal tool with a sharpened metal blade that is used to cut all sorts of things. The plural form of "knife" is "knives."

There are many kinds of knives, depending what is to be cut. With the right knife, the cuts you want to make will happen faster and more easily.
