A knife is a sharp-edged hand tool typically used for cutting. A minimal knife is a blade and a handle or some other method of gripping it. On Earth, knives have been used as tools and weapons since the Stone Age.

The first Earth knives were made of stone, chipped or ground to an edge, sometimes with a handle. Advances in technology led to blades made of bronze, iron, steel, and other exotic materials. Many cultures, such as the Klingons, have special knives for significant purposes such as eating, ceremonial practices, and assassinations.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard claims that he spells "knife" with an 'n'. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

He had no weapon except a short, slaughter knife that he used to cut the necks of fowl and birds he prepared for supper. It made the same sound when he cut the gullets of the security officers. (DS9: "Vortex")

Joseph Sisko used a Cook's Club knife in the kitchen of his restaurant, Sisko's Creole Kitchen, in 2372. (DS9: "Homefront")
