3 Knives That Changed The Worldimage credit
Of all of humankind's early inventions there are few that are still commonplace in the modern home. The fan assisted oven has replaced fire and I doubt any of us would even recognise a racloir. There is, however, one invention of the Palaeolithic that nearly every person in the world has in their home right now: The Knife.
The sheer genius underlying the knife design is proven by the diversity of its forms; there is a knife for every occasion. Slicing, skinning, stabbing, all these needs have produced knifes with their own unique morphology.
