Who Invented the First Knife?

Answer

Knives have been in use as weapons, tools, and eating utensils since ancient times and it is not clearly stated who invented them. However, it is only in modern times that knives have been designed for table use. Because hosts did not give cutlery for their guests during the middle ages in Europe, the majority of people carried their own knives, in sheaths attached to their belts. These knives were narrow and their pointed ends were used to spear food and then lift it to one's mouth.
