What is the knife emoji like?
The emoji popularly found on the emoji keyboards under the name of a knife is a kitchen knife emoji, also referred to as ‘Hocho.’ Hocho is the Unicode name of the emoji as well. This emoji should not be confused with that of a dagger used for stabbing, or the emoji of crossed swords.
The classic emoji of a knife is an angled knife at 45 ֯, pointing toward the right bottom corner. The knife is almost always made with a black handle. Furthermore, the blade of the knife is shiny silver like a real kitchen knife.
While knife emoji iPhone and Samsung have created a benchmark of the knife pointing at the right, WhatsApp and Facebook, however, stand out in that aspect. WhatsApp’s emoji is pointing towards the top right corner, while Facebook’s is pointing towards the left bottom corner. On a completely different note, Skype’s knife has a brown handle, instead of a black.
The emoji was added to our keyboards in 2015 after being approved as a part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010. The Unicode is U+1F5E1.
