After all, at all times the knife was attributed to the sacral property. And the use of these weapons was often accompanied by special rituals and conspiracies. In ancient times a man received a knife almost immediately after birth. The father personally forged a newborn knife or ordered from the blacksmith. Often, the knife, together with other sharp and hard objects: scissors, keys, arrows, stones, teeth of animals, was put into the cradle of a boy. It was believed that this provided strength, endurance, hardness of character. These items were removed from the cradle after the baby's first teeth appeared. At the first haircut of the child, he was placed on the table, usually on a casing, under which a spindle or a comb for a girl, an ax or a knife for a boy was placed. The knife participated as an amulet in many rituals, spells. He protected from evil spirits, gave strength and confidence. A knife can not be given to a stranger. In the representation of our ancestors, the knife was a powerful carrier of energy as good, creative, and aggressive and destructive. The Byzantine chronicler Procopius of Caesarea wrote about the armament of the Slavs in the 6th century: "Shields of bull-skinned warriors, light, and all weapons light - spears of strong wood ... long swords in the elbow and short knives, as well as the sheath for them are doing well. "In the above quotation, the combat equipment of the Slavic warrior of the 6th century is described. Known and the fact that a few centuries later the knife did not lose the status of military weapons. It is known that the strong and efficient squad of Prince Svyatoslav was armed, including behind shoe knives. Researcher Maria Semenova writes: "Each soldier had a knife, a convenient economic and marching tool, which, of course, could serve in battle. Chronicles, however, mention their use only in heroic martial arts, in the pursuit of a defeated enemy, as well as during particularly stubborn and brutal battles. " When you call the enemy to fight, you also used a knife. At the same time, weapons were stuck in the ground or in the "matic", if the case took place indoors. Currently, "fighting" scientists call knives more than 20 cm long. Knife as an attribute of the male principle. In Russia, there were cases when the ban on wearing a knife was perceived as a direct insult to male dignity. Usually a knife was worn on the belt or in the boot top. The first way is considered more ancient. During the holidays or ceremonies, the knife was usually demonstrated, flaunted. There is an opinion that most of the rituals associated with sticking a knife into the ground are associated with fertility. Mother Earth, Mother-Cheese-Earth, personified the feminine principle and fertility. A knife or dagger, respectively, male. Entered into the ground a knife symbolized the fertilization of the earth. It is not without reason that in some ancient figures, idols depicted a dagger rather than a male genital organ. But the perception of the earth as a woman, and a knife as a symbol of the male principle, was rather not sexual, but epic, global, universally giving birth. Knife at the dinner table. No less solemn was the attitude towards the knife and at the table. For example, the bread was cut either by the owner of the house, or by an older woman. When the family gathered at the table, the owner carefully, with great respect, cut bread, attaching his breasts. It was forbidden in ancient times, and is still considered a bad omen, is from a knife. On the table, the knife was placed only with the blade to the bread. At night, all sharp objects were removed from the table to avoid quarrels and conflicts.
