I agree with you in that I think the epilogue was totally unnecessary at the end. Even if maybe it served to show that the story will continue in another series.
No idea is a bad idea.

Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.

I also agree that the search for the knife at the end felt disconnected from the plot and unconvincing as the closing chapter of the story. Both that part and the epilogue feel more like a "bonus" for the reader to be interested in a future installment than anything else.

I didn't necessarily mind the extra chapter with the hunting for the knife. I thought it was almost like a sneak peek into the next book which, since it is a series, gives us hints about what's coming. But I understand where everyone else is coming from as well.
I don't disagree ... I liked that it lead the reader to "what's next". However, I did think the epilogue could have been the first chapter of the next book.
