    I will make history or a history or the history.

    Are the following sentences correct?
    1. I will make history.
    2. I will make a history.
    3. I will make the history.
    I would like to ask one more thing. If a noun is countable, can I write without the definite article "the" before it like: you can cut the cake without using knife.

    It has to be "a knife" and I would go with number 1.

    To make history is an expression meaning "to achieve something which will be remembered in future history books".
