Is it possible that the root-word for 'sword' (sefira) also could be translated to 'knife?'

Especially because a two-edged sword, seems an unnecessary detail as all swords in those days, had two edges.
Knifes, however, still today, can have two sides, or a single side.

What's your thought about this?

I found this blog about the origin of the word.
