A game in which two or more players compare knives; the player with the largest knife is the winner. However, any player may choose to use a spoon instead of a knife. Any spoon beats any knife, but a player with a spoon is disqualified if another player recognizes and announces his or her use of a spoon.
"That's not a knife. THIS is a knife!"
"That's not a knife, that's a spoon."
"Ah, I see you've played Knifey-Spoony before!"
A game Australian in origin. Two opponents challenge each other to a comparison of knife blades, to determine who has the greater knife. When knives are to be produced, one player actually produces a spoon. If the opposing player correctly identifies it as a spoon, she/he wins the match.
