The bat scores points for reach advantage and in the hands of someone skilled could be used to disarm the knife, however at the same time, you hit someone with the bat, they block with the arm, you have to draw back to swing and in that short time frame you have a knife in you, repeatedly, so I'd go with the knife, hands down unless you know some form of martial arts to defend yourself. A nice front kick to the chest to push them back then a rush attack with the bat aimed for the head or armed hand could result in a victory.

MMAswe82 I was the exact same.

Also we got a weapons talk at school (best class ever) and the guy said that bat wins everytime from his experience, guy was a policeman or something.

He went through examples. Just said each time if the guy uses the bat right he can.smash the hand holding the knife or arm etc or even deliver a head shot without risking (to an extent) being struck back. Said in most cases the dude with the knife gets his knife wielding arm jacked up badly.

You are one crazy mofo!

Dear Luckbox,

First off why are you laying awake at night thinking of this...haha. You should be thinking of happier thoughts my friend. See my avatar for inspiration...

Next without going into too much detail...I'm a bat person.
I don't like knives or sharp objects...it makes my ballz cringe. If I lost my bat I would have to rely on my Orange belt in Aikido to disarm em. The way I see it I would ask the attacker politely to swing slower so I can grab his wrist or I'm FAWKED!!!

If you enjoyed the story send a rep because I'm trying to be the first to hit the highest marks on this forum.

Oh and here's an old video...no knives involved, but still hella funny!

Pay attention to the guy who picks up the Orange cone...roflz!!!

Knife wins this all day because it is a weapon and thus designed to kill. It's all business end and any wound from it can potentially end the fight. Not to mention, your opponent will see your bat in your hands from down the street; a knife can be tucked up against an arm or concealed in other ways until you're in the pocket and start gutting your opponent, and by then its all over. One deep slash to the inner thigh and you can just walk away from the guy because in about three minutes he's taking a dirt nap....

Ah yes the Cobra Kai way.

Sweep the leg or in this case gut the turkey.
You have a problem with that...
No Sensei...
No Mercy!

I'd still go with the bat though.

Bat.

You don't have to use it like an idiot, swinging for the fences the whole time.

Think of it as an incredibly lo-o-onng reach advantage/jab combo. If you hold the bat right, knife-dude won't be able to get out of the way of the very end of the bat zipping straight out and back.

Imagine what that would do to your nose/eye/throat- how your body would react involuntarily, and how exposed you'd be for the hey-maker at that point.
