I've had fanfic in my head for a while on this one (probably never manage
to write, though)... If the incidence of them tails off, as it seems to be
happening, then eventually one gets to where the whole world hasn't seen
one in about a hundred years - long enough that any knives made when
they're still known to occur have aged away.
If Lakewalker skills also begin to decline and few people can do
knife-maker/groundsetter level of work, then there could be a real problem
towards the end.
