The Chinese Alphabet Letter “D”
刀 (dāo) Knife
This is another pictorial character that looks like the shape of an object, in this case, knife.
There are many characters that include 刀. When placed on the right side of the character, it’s written as 刂.
For example, 刃 (rèn), a knife and a dot, is a blade, or the cutting edge of a knife. Picture a knife and a drop of the blood.
We will see this character again later.
