A knife can be a great weapon to defend yourself if you are attacked. The key is you have to know how to use a knife before you should carry one. You also need to check your local law to understand what is allowed in your city for carrying a knife.
- A knife is easy to carry in a purse or in your pockets
- You can carry more than one
- It is easier to use and not as expensive as a gun
- You do not need a permit to carry a knife
- With a gun, shooting someone may have an accidental stray bullet fired that could injure other innocent people
- There are many things we use every day that can be used as a knife:
- Pencil or pen
- You can easily learn some basic moves with a knife to defend yourself
- Having a knife to fight against an attacker with no weapon or even the same weapon is better than nothing
- Gun training is a lot more intensive than using a knife because most people have the basic ability to at least stab or slash with a knife without any training if their life depended on it
