Jackknife: Master, am I flexible?

A pocketknife, before creation you were!
A knife, you have been!

A blade, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word jackknife
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for penknife

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Pi (π)
Can I make a poesy, committed so pupils might see
Fully inviting sentences, readily educating, and oh but divulged free?
Knives or cutter seem way too manifest. But is slander?
Arrowhead, blade? - or penknife, filament? Darn! I excluded slender!
I reason penetrate and sometimes stimulate, but rightly ought I
- crank meanings so - summaries drafted with equations spry?
