Of course its important to remember that if he has a blade, he's not going to let me know he has it until he uses it. So chances are i'm going to have to do all of that AFTER getting stabbed.
To me this implies that you're saying if you knew "he" had a blade, you'd be less likely to get stabbed. If this is the case, why assume he hasn't got a blade in the first place?
