How to use knife in a sentence?

  1. John McNesby:

    The officers were justified in their use of force under very difficult and stressful conditions, an armed man confronting them with a knife.

  2. Alexandra Feodorovna:

    “All is in God’s will. The deeper you look, the more you understand that this is so. All sorrows are sent us to free us from our sins or as a test of our faith, an example to others. It requires good food to make plants grow properly and the gardener, walking through His garden, wants to be pleased with His flowers. If they do not grow properly, he takes His pruning knife, and cuts, waiting for the sunshine to coax them into growth again”…

  3. Florian Flade:

    This could very well be related to calls from ISIS -- especially a recent video featuring the Austrian Mohamed Mahmoud calling for attacks in Germany and Austria, saying: 'Take a huge knife and kill a kafir (disbeliever),'.

  4. Mike Breard:

    They don't have a track record, you feel better buying something you know when you're trying to catch a falling knife.

  5. Imram Abu al-Hawa:

    They (police) say, 'do you have a knife, where are you going?' They can go to hell. I used to work among Jews, now I'm afraid I'll get stabbed or attacked (by them).
