In brief: Depends
This depends on where the wound is located and how deep it goes.
A superficial wound on the arm or leg may just require stitches. A deep wound over the abdomen, neck or chest may require emergency surgery. One could write half a textbook on knife wound treatment. See a doctor if there is a question.

In brief: Diagnosis, antisepsi
The wound will be evaluated for position of the entry site, risk to underlying structures, risk of infection (you may need to renew your tetanus shot), and size and structures of the wound.
This may require flush, antisepsis, sutures and proper bandaging. This can be done in an er or with a plastic surgeon.
