Knife etiquette

-A pocketknife is a tool, not a weapon or a toy.

-Don’t point your knife at somebody.

-When handing your knife to somebody, always hand it handle first and edge down. If a table or a counter is close you can even set it on the table and let the other person pick it up.

-When handed a closed knife, ask permission before opening it. When handed an open knife, don’t touch the blade. When returning the knife, return it in the position it was given to you: open if given open and closed if given closed.
