Knife: a bladed implement? A particular one (e. g. scalpel, utility knife, clasp knife, bayonet, machete etc.)? Did it cut something solid?

Did it cut a person? Is the cut a "cut" or more of a stabbing? slicing? chopping? killing?
Does anyone die in this?
I'm now starting all LPs assuming someone dies for some reason.

Is this to do with the origins of surgery? Of the use of specialized tools for surgery? Sterilization relevant? A particular surgical procedure?
