The polite way of asking for anything in English is to say "May I have another knife" and this translation should be accepted. " I ask for for another knife" is just reported speech, and usually in the past tense.

Or "I would like another knife", which it just accepted. (1 Aug 2018)

It doesn't accept 'I am asking for . . .' either.
