    Question for Trained Knife Fighters

    This may seem a bit silly, but curiosity is killing me.

    I watch a whole lot of "real life" crime shows, and I've noticed something about what happens when a bad guy kills someone with a knife. It seems they almost always end up cutting their hand when they stab their victims, and very often an extremely bad cut down to bone.

    Usually the attacker is just some scumbag with a knife, not a trained expert.

    It seems that the blood is part of the problem, and acts as a lubricant causing a lot of havoc for the attacker, resulting in injuries.

    How, as an expert do you avoid this?

    I have no idea what a "trained knife fighter" is - that the old school "gentleman's duel" style stiletto boot knife street fight guys used to have over "broads" in the 50's ?

    ^^^^LOL

    no expert but a good guard will keep your hand from slipping up , but in a knife you will get cut I don't care how trained you are and how badly trained the attacker is at some point your getting cut

    Knicks are hard to avoid, even during practice (see butterfly knives), but deep, self-inflicted cuts seem like a failure to keep your shit out of the way. I'm no SME, but I've taken classes with some name brand dudes, as well as some sword training.

    Guns > knives FTW!

    You see this a lot with stabbing scenes. Their hands will often slip off the knife and cut themselves in the process. When you hit bone, the stabbing motion tends to stop very abruptly.

    I guess I would define it as someone who has a lot, to extensive training in the handling of a knife for someone caught in the unenviable position of having to defend themselves with a knife, as opposed to someone in the street fighting over broads in the 50's. Someone who might make use of those "blue" knives to train themselves in the discipline, that you take pictures of, to post on the forum, that come with the $500 "fighting" knives, that make knife " training " much smarter than using a sharpened blade?? Something like that might make you a trained knife figher?

    Yeah, that was what I was alluding too. Would someone with a lot of training be able to avoid that? Or do you just hope like hell that it doesn't happen?

    What you are seeing is what Hollywood wants you to see. The real life effect is quite a bit less dramatic.

    My technique to avoid this is to always bring a gun to a knife fight.

    Yeah, main reason I just carry a smaller "utility" knife.

    That's like asking someone for advise on how not to get punched in a fist fight.

    You can be given all the advise you want, but typically that only works on a stationary target or under ideal conditions. Such as trying to teach people to hit with an open hand on hard spots on the target, and a closed hand on soft parts. When people are moving and fighting back, it usually doesn't work out.

    Just don't stab anyone

    Unless this is the kind of knife fight you were thinking of... then I don't know who can help you.

    Or... since you asked... just throw the knives... you won't get cut.
