Man has been defined as a tool using-animal, and there is no another tool that appeals to the imagination so strongly as a knife. It is through long months and years are a forbidden thing, and all the more fascinating on that count. There is no glory in using a spoon. There is no honour in holding a fork in the right hand and in taking up on it little squares of meat that have been cut with a knife by some more privileged hand. Fork and spoon and little more than an extension of the fingers and a spoon, at least, is so safe that it can be left in the hands of an infant in the cradle. But a knife is a danger against which constant warning is necessary something out of reach and waiting as a prize at the end after a long avenue of years.
