A knife is a small blade weapon, used for very close combat or for cutting material.
Knives have been in use for thousands of years. The first knives are traced back to Neolithic times. These knives were made from stone and presumably used as tools.
In later years, the knife was used in warfare as well. They ranged in length from a few inches to multiple feet, and were used in all regions of the world.
