From the Wikipedia;
The knife plays a significant role in some cultures through ritual and superstition,
as the knife was an essential tool for survival since early man.
Knife symbols can be found in various cultures to symbolize all stages of life;
for example, a knife placed under the bed while giving birth is said to ease the pain, or,
stuck into the headboard of a cradle, to protect the baby;
knives were included in some Anglo-Saxon burial rites,
so the dead would not be defenseless in the next world.
The knife plays an important role in some initiation rites,
and many cultures perform rituals with a variety of knives,
including the ceremonial sacrifices of animals. Samurai warriors,
as part of bushido, could perform ritual suicide, or seppuku,
with a tantō, a common Japanese knife.
An athame, a ceremonial knife, is used in Wicca and derived forms of neopagan witchcraft.
In Greece, a black-handled knife placed under the pillow is used
to keep away nightmares.
As early as 1646 reference is made to a superstition of laying a knife
across another piece of cutlery being a sign of witchcraft.
A common belief is that if a knife is given as a gift,
the relationship of the giver and recipient will be severed.
Something such as a small coin, dove or
a valuable item is exchanged for the gift, rendering "payment."
