As a blackbelt (according to you), you should know better than that. A sneak's weapon? Maybe to someone like you that doesn't seem to understand edged weapon techniques. (You must have missed that portion of your training - huh?)andy said:plenty of bozos "think" a knife can handle the pistol's job, and they are simply ignorant. If you know much about the knife, you realize that it's a sneak's "weapon". If you can't grab a guy from behind, and stick him in the kidney, you can expect to shed a lot of blood if all you have is a knife for defense. All it will take for a guy to outclass you is to grab the nearest chair, pair of pool balls, etc. Yeah, you can bluff some UNARMED clowns with a knife, but jumpiing up and kicking the ceiling will do that much, so why bother with the knife, hmm? It's a beef to use a weapon against an unarmed man, and you shouldn't need to do so, anyways.
