How many of you know that "knife" is "kniv" in Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish? Personally, I like the term kniv much better. Shorter, sounds better, easier to type, etc. For this reason I prefer the site (( which-is-not-to-be-named-because-it's SPAM )) when looking for knife information. I also like their international focus.

No it doesn't really matter but it's fun to debate anyway :). Kniv (pronounced "niv") is about as simple as it gets. Does anyone know the words for "knife" in other languages?

No , it's pronounced "kniv" !! English speakers seem to have a difficulty pronouncing 'kn'. If you know history ,the Norwegian King Knute has been translated to King Canute in English !
