A spife (also known as a knoon) is a tool where the blade of a knife is used as the handle of the spoon, often used for cutting kiwi fruit. Its name is a portmanteau of the words "spoon" and "knife". More commonly today, a spife is sold with a handle guard that covers the blade of the handle to prevent injury while using the utensil as a spoon. Spifes have been featured on many Food Network television shows shown being used to cut a wider variety of fruit than just the original use for cutting kiwi fruit.
Other spifes put a small, dull blade along the edge of the spoon.
