Onion cut with meaty knife in nine days?

Question:

On the nine days when one would not eat meat, is it permitted to eat an onion that has been cut with a (clean) meaty knife?

Answer:

The prohibition not to eat meat only applies to the actual meat or its gravy, but not to taste that was absorbed into a pot or a knife. Therefore you may pareve food cooked in a meaty pot or an onion cut with a meaty knife.
