Sometimes I'm needed when you go out to dine;
Sometimes I mean to hurt or malign;
But in today's age;
To unlock the stage;
I grant you the power to steer through the vine.

What am I?

Edit: I meant for a relatively abstract interpretation of "stage" and "vine". Also, the intended answer is not a physical tool or utensil.

People like to take pictures of their food and post it.

Sometimes I mean to hurt or malign;

Cyber bullying is very real, and goes a lotfurther than middle school/high schools.

But in today's age; To unlock the stage;

The stage being anything you want it to be, but it provides the audience to watch your "performance" on your "stage".

I grant you the power to steer through the vine.

The 'vine' being the internet, and a reference to a once popular app.

So you are:

Social Media

In a literal sense,

Knife seems to fit


Knives are used for dining
Knives can be used to harm
Knives can be used to unlock stages in video games (ex. Cut the rope)
Knives can help you steer through vines (machete)
