Don't bring a knife to a pillow fight

My mother always told me not to give a knife as a gift because it would mean a severing of the relationship with the recipient, but adhering to that is a pain in the butt. Invariably, I find, staring back at me from some Williams-Sonoma/Crate & Barrel/etc. wedding registry, a column of unpurchased knives. Who's the selfish person who bought the all 12 napkin rings?
