Attempt to use a knife (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stab

I believe this is a double definition.

'attempt' is the first definition.
(to have a stab is to attempt something)

'to use a knife' is the second definition.

(Other definitions for stab that I've seen before include "Jab" , "Knife thrust; attempt" , "Injure with knife" , "Strike with knife" , "Wound with blade" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
