Police were called to the scene and took Psenicinii, of Soar Green in Corby, into custody where he was charged with possession of a bladed article.
When he appeared before magistrates in Northampton he pleaded guilty and faced the possibility of a prison sentence.
But magistrates sentenced him to a community order and ordered him to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
Magistrates made an order for the knife to be forfeited and destroyed by police.
They also ordered Psenicinii to pay costs of £85 and a surcharge to fund victim services of £95.
