A chef while cooking cuts his hand with a sharp edged knife, but to his surprise his hand did not cut with a spoon even on the application of a greater force. Why it did cut from a knife for a smaller force.

Since the edge of the knife is very sharp, therefore the pressure developed is much larger for the same force in the case of knife than spoon.
