The movie I'm trying to remember was probably made between 1971 and 1979. It ran in the late night time block, after the local late evening news on one of the 3 major US networks. It would fall into the spooky, supernatural drama category. It was in color. The one character in it I remember was a grandfather aged man. I thought it was Will Geer, but nothing in his filmography seems to fit. It was someone of that general type. Near the beginning of the story, the man is shown burying a knife, point up, in the ground. The knife has a series of rivets in the handle. Each rivet represents someone the knife has killed. At the end of the story, the villain falls on the knife and is killed.
The only other thing I can remember is that it was shot on videotape, I think. I'm not certain about that.
ETA: It isn't an episode of "Night Gallery", "Thriller" (1973) or "Journey to the Unknown.".

     70's, late-night, on videotape....sounds like it might have been part of ABC WIDE WORLD MYSTERY.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

That's my best guess too, Alan. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a guide of all the American made episodes, only the British.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
