Huh??? I think you entirely missed the point: I was trying to say it would be very difficult to disarm someone holding a knife unless you had training to do so.

On the other hand, have you seen the Magnificent Seven? Britt (James Coburn) could throw a knife quicker than most men could draw a gun. I also think it may have been Bruce Lee (?) who said something along the lines of "you can't outrun a bullet".
