Would "crisp bread," be another way to say "toast," or is it something completely different?

Are they a sort of cracker? Is it savory?

I suppose you could liken them to that, but you'd have to imagine a rather hard and thick (usually) whole grain cracker. To Norwegians, they form a category of their own.

They're quite neutral in taste; lightly salted, but balanced by the natural sweetness of the grains. You could top them with just about anything, with brunost being a favoured alternative.

It's more of a hearty type of cracker, usually mostly whole-grain.

Why is Swedish knäckebröd accepted but not Norwegian knekkebrød in the English translation?
