Quote from: Jan on October 28, 2015, 11:32:24 PMElden, the knife terminology is not unique. In Wikipedia under the slogan "knife", I have found: "the point – the end of the knife used for piercing" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KnifeIn Oxford dictionaries I have found definition of "knifepoint" in American-English: "The pointed end of a knife". http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/american_english/knifepoint?q=knife-pointWhile, no exact match found for "knife-tip" in British & World English, and no exact match found for "knife-tip" in US English.
Quote1. The end of a pointed or projecting object.
