Great riddle!

You are

CASHEW

My prefix is the ruler of all our lives.

CASH. Cash plays an integral role in our day to day lives.

My suffix hints us thrashing knives.

HEW. Thrashing knives could mean chopping at an object, since knives are made to chop. Hew means precisely this.

My infix before the fire was a cane.

ASH. Ash is what is the remains from plant material being burnt. This line points at Ash before being (in contact with) the fire was a cane.

My whole pretends that it's insane

CASHEW is often wrongly classified as a nut and so can be said to 'pretend to be one' and nuts can mean crazy so it pretends to be crazy.
