Is there any difference between these two?
Do (suppose) technical knowledge and technical know-how convey different meaning?

I think the terms knowledge and know-how are very similar. The only two small differences I can think of are perhaps that know-how is a bit less formal than knowledge, and that know-how may place a little more emphasis on knowledge of how to do something practical/physical, as opposed to knowledge being potentially more abstract. That said, you can certainly have knowledge about how to do practical/physical tasks.
