Knife

KNIFE, KNIVES

In the early ages of the world, before that instruments of metal were formed, the eastern inhabitants used sharp stones for the purpose of cutting. Thus Zipporah took a sharp stone for the circumcision of her son. (Exodus 4:25) And Joshua, at the command of the Lord, made sharp knives for the same purpose. The margin of the Bible saith, that they were "knives of flints." (See Joshua 5:2-3) And as knives of stones were then in use, it is more than probable that the earlier ages had none formed of better materials. (Genesis 22:6)
