Both "dagger" and "an ancient type of spoon" are listed as alternative meanings of this character. You can see the alternatives in a learning session by pressing "see more". The "ancient type of spoon" that this character represented was, in fact, a ladle. Does that make sense? Thanks!Ben
Yeah, this means dagger. It is not interpreted as ladle by modern Chinese. I think ladle should be in the alt. meanings & dagger as the formal meaning. Is there any way to change this for the benefit of future users?
