that's all you've GOT after I tell you to drop it. .30 second, and you have to either THROW it, or TRY to take a step and slash/thrust with it. the latter is never going to get accomplished. .30 sec after I issue the challenge, I'm firing, so that IS all you'll get. The throw of the blade MIGHT work for you, as far as hitting me goes, but then I'm still going to kill you, Before I fall. The blade only has blood loss and psychological shock, not any physical shock to help stop. Basically, the knife is a SNEAK's weapon, has been ever since the invention of modern cartridges and repeating firearms.
