What is the meaning of 'Knives' in dreams?


To dream of a knife is bad for the dreamer, as it portends separation and quarrels, and losses in affairs of a business character. To see rusty knives, means dissatisfaction, and complaints of those in the home, and separation of lovers. Sharp knives and highly polished, denotes worry. Foes are ever surrounding you. Broken knives, denotes defeat whatever the pursuit, whether in love or business. To dream that you are wounded with a knife, foretells domestic troubles, in which disobedient children will figure largely. To the unmarried, it denotes that disgrace may follow. To dream that you stab another with a knife, denotes baseness of character, and you should strive to cultivate a higher sense of right.

Ten Thousand Dreams Interpreted by Gustavus Hindman Miller


To dream of knives is a very unpropitious omen. It betokens lawsuits, poverty, disgrace, strife and a general failure in your projects. In love, it shows that your sweetheart is of a bad temper, and unfaithful, and that if you marry you will live in enmity and misery.
