Re: The Correct Way to Hold a Knife

The probable reasoning is the dull side up might catch into the bones of the rib cage and get stuck there, but if you're poking your knife there in the first place...

A lot of combat fighters have the edge downside when using a foregrip because the knife is both a slashing and a thrusting weapon. Go figure.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
