Throughout history, knives have been used for both as a weapon and a kitchen tool. It is just logical to have one handy tool to kill your food and then use it to cut the meat into your desired pieces/cuts. However, knives did not really look as fashionable as they are today. It is not until the Bourbon Dynasty of France that knives were sort of domesticated and fashioned for table use. Up until that point, knives were made to be very sharp and pointy to serve its other purpose of killing your food.
