At a range it's probably the bat. For disarming the other both are effective. But as someone who trains with both I'd prefer the knife because a bat is slower and hard to utilize if someone hugs you. While a knife becomes extra deadly at close range. So, close the gap and the deal is sealed.

Nobody with any sense is going to hold their knife out so that you can hit it. This isn't a karate manual.

The person with the knife will lead their empty hand in order to try to parry or grab the bat so that they can close and get inside the bat's useful range and stab the shit out of you. If they're good they might even try to fake you out by trying to make you swing their hand and then rushing you when you're recovering.

No, Stick is better than Knife.

The most important things about knifes is:
Knifes are great for offense but suck for defense.

Since it's very light it has no "stopping power", you can't put any kinetic energy into it.

Therefore any "knife vs. knife" fight will always be about who makes the other cut bleed faster (without getting cut too badly).

In "Knife vs. Bat" the knife guy has literally nothing to put up against the kinetic energy of the stick and will get crushed.


Reality proves me right:

Anyone saying bat wins is retarded. There is no way to "manage distance" in this fight. The knife wielder is not going to play around waiting for a perfect opening and risk getting hit multiple times by the bat wielder. He'll bait one swing (or maybe even none) from the batter, then just fucking bullrush in and stab the guy to death. The worst that can happen to the knifer in that scenario is that he eats one bat swing on the entry, but other than that once the distance is closed it's over. The only chance the batter has here is if he immediately turns, runs, has better cardio than the pursuing knifer and beats him with the bat once he runs out of breath.

You can't "grab a bat". The only chance you have is to pass the impact zone of the bat which is very hard unless your timing is ten times better than the attackers.


>>442883

But you did read my post, and watched the videos, right?
>>442568

The problem with your logic is:
Knife range is punching range, so there's exactly one step between "in range" and safety.

For the bat it's at least three steps between "in range" and safety (maybe even more).

So if the knife guy rushes, he has to pass a distance of at least three steps between one swing and the next one - that's plenty of time for the "bat guy" to recognise the rush and take two steps backwards.

So the knife guy has to pass a distance of five steps between two swings of the bat before he can start to cut and there's no way he'll be able to do that in time.


The bat guy can just sit there and wait for the knife guy, because once the knife guy gets in range, all he has to to is to give him a swing to break his hand. No matter what you believe, if you wrist shatters you'll be stunned for a second and that's all the time you need to perform a finishing strike to the head.

Watch the videos, it's exactly what I just described.

You actually proved me right. In the first video you posted, the guy with the knife just fucking stood there and waited for the guy with the stick to hit him in the head. What a fucking idiot. That is exactly what I said you shouldn't do. In the second video, the kid with the knife hesitantly moves forward slowly and promptly gets his stupid little head bashed in.

If either of those knife wielders were even somewhat intelligent, they would have bullrushed, just straight up ran full sprint into the other guy like an old school Gracie takedown, and tackled the stick wielder to the ground while stabbing rapidly.

If it is two people of similar skill, assuming the knife wielder's intelligence is at least in the triple digits and he is not crippled, knife wins. It would probably look like this, except with the victim holding a bat and the knifer protecting his head on the entry:

So much this.

The only moment I'd think about throwing a knife would be some fucker pulling out his gun. And even then I'd cosider it more as a distraction, because he has to evade the knife and gives me the two seconds I need to close the distance to him.. in theory, that is.


>>443154
> the guy with the knife just fucking stood there
actually he tried to engage, got his arm broken, got smashed on his head and went to the ground.

>If it is two people of similar skill, assuming the knife wielder's intelligence is at least in the triple digits and he is not crippled, knife wins.

Nah, you didn't read my post, did you?

Even if "knife guy" rushed in right after the swing of "bat guy", the distance is way to big to close before the next swing. Plus the "bat guy" can (and probably will) jump backwards.

The problem is you won't get past the first strike. Maybe if he's telegraphing his strikes you can duck/weave (in case of a horizontal strike) or side step (in case of a vertical strike).
Most people strike diagonally though, so to use this tactic you have two options:
-dive under the the strike in direction of the strike
-move with the strike while closing in (when the strike has lost some of it's power)
>>

I didn't see him trying to engage. I saw him standing there hesitating. I don't think you are understanding the proper knife strategy here. If he was smart, he would have ran at him FULL SPEED like a fucking 28 Days Later zombie, throwing caution totally to the wind, and shanked him like a he was a prison snitch. He would maybe have taken one hit from the bat on the entry, but thats all. Anybody can survive a single hit from a bat. And no, "jumping backwards" is not a counter to this. The knifer can sprint forward faster than the batter can run backwards. And the distance is NOT too much to close. It's a bat, not a sniper rifle.

Think of it like an old school striker vs grappler MMA fight, where all the grappler had to do to win was rush hard and tackle his opponent to the ground. They didn't play games looking for the opening for the takedown for five minutes. They understood that they might take a punch, kick, or a knee on the entry, and they manned the fuck up and took it in order to take the striker down and win the fight. As oppoesed to being careful, waiting for their opening, and taking Muay Thai roundhouses to the skull until they were knocked out. I didn't equate my knife strategy to a Gracie bullrush for no reason. It is parallel.

you might as well replace "knife vs. bat" with "grappler vs. striker" and the replies to the question would probably be close to the same.

It depends on a few factors like distance, environment, and luck. The bat wielder has that "striker's chance" of knocking Knife Boy out cold at a distance and smashing his skull in. if Knife Boy gets in close or it goes to the ground, Bat Man is fucked.

It's the other way around for armour.

So unarmoured it's slashing > hacking > piercing > bludgeoning.

Armoured is bludgeoning > piercing > hacking > slashing.

Changes up a bit when considering lameller armour or chain mail. Like piercing is very good against chain but bludgeoning is the only thing that will do any damage to plate (or the guy inside the plate).

Things also change when considering full armour and partial armouring. So if your opponent is wearing a breastplate and not much else slashing will do the job well, as opposed to partial armouring of the arms/legs where hacking or bludgeoning might be a better bet.

In general though range > damage type. An agile fighter with no armour and a spear has excellent opportunity against a fully plated fighter with a sword and shield.

Then you also need to consider stamina which with greater armour is usually the killer.

everyone here is forgetting that the bat only has the striking power to break a limb if it connects at nearly full range.

The knife weilder can stay out of range of the bat quite easily. the second a swing comes out, he rushes in. the second a feint comes out, the feint diminishes the striking power by half. He rushes in. If the bat still connects, it's at the midway point, with less force. Stabbed to death

That's assuming the bat guy isn't able to keep his distance and use faints

feints stop the momentum of the actual strike and create the perfect opportunity to get stabbed

I'm arguing for knives. all things being completely equal, it is still only a 60-40 advantage for the knife, but that's still an advantage

when you rush in you keep your arm above your head and stab his gut. He's dead, and you have a broken arm IF he manages to catch you with the very end of the bat. If he catches you with the middle there's very little acceleration and you have a bruise

A bat has greater range and better stopping power. A knife does better lethal damage but only close in. Therefore, factoring in the stability/ poise damage, the bat wins. As the Chinese say, "An inch longer, an inch stronger."

I guess I'll be the one to point out the obvious irony of an asian guy saying that.

Oh, I'd say an Asian guy would be all the more acutely aware of the fact. But it's normally used to qualify the spear's status as the 'King of Weapons'.

A stab to the gut isn't lethal

Almost nothing the knife does will be able to put the guy with the bat down instantly

Feinting will make the knifer miss judge his timing, cover at the wrong moment and keep him at bay, if he covers and charges in hes going to get hit and the guy with the bat will keep moving and keep hitting

knife to the brain?
cut off the hands holding the bat?
levering out the heart using the knife?
throwing the knife directly into the jugular from a distance and then laughing as he bleeds to death hopelessly out of range of his bat?

The guy you're responding to said "Almost" nothing not nothing but still.

>knife to the brain
If the guy with the knife can get that close.
>cut off the hands holding the bat?
Do you really think a knife can chop hands off like that? Why would you go for the hands when you'd probably close enough to stab him in the chest at that point?
>levering out the heart using the knife?
So stabbing him in the heart? Ok but again the guy with the knife has to get in range to do that.
>throwing the knife directly into the jugular from a distance and then laughing as he bleeds to death hopelessly out of range of his bat?
What kind of idiot throws a knife that isn't made to be thrown? Now if you miss (and you probably will) you're without a knife and he can just beat your ass with the bat.

I don't usually side with the sword but sword wins because the range and not only can you slash but you can stab too.
