Singular of knives is knife. Glad no one was hurt and thankful that he was caught.

Indeed it is.

What is a "knive"? I know what a "knife" is, and I myself own several "knives." But I've NEVER heard of a "knive."

You're a little late to this one; the headline was edited earlier this morning!

The phrase, "Singular of knives is knife," is a sentence fragment. @Ehammondcpa
