    Not that I know of.

    What does "Not that I know of" mean? Could you give me a scenario where this phrase should be used. Thanks.

    .
    Not that I know of = I have no information that the affirmative is true.

    Does it mean the same with "I don't know"?

    Re: Not that I know of.

    It means the same as "I don't know", but also expresses doubt.

    - Has Lucy got a new job?
    - Not that I know of.

    = I don't know, but I think not. (I believe she still has the job that she had before.)

    - Is there a chemist's near here?
    - Not that I know of.

    = I don't think there is a chemist's near here. (I haven't seen one, but I suppose there might be.)

    - Did your sister bring money with her?
    + Not that I know of.

    What I mean actually is, "None. but I dont know. Maybe ".

    Is this correct?

    Re: Not that I know of.

    Can we say that "As far as I know, no" has the same meaning?
