While there is a situational aspect to this training, the close knife work is primarily fundamental attribute training to get the body to move. It is not "technique". There is lots of other work to involve the rest (hands, arms, anything) in work against a knife but it begins with the body movement.

Omega, you made a comment that your fellow instructors found the shovel defense applications interesting?
Realistically, what are the chances you're going to have a shovel in hand when you get attacked on the street, in a bar setting, or even in your house?Kungfoolss, Scourge of the theory-based stylists, Most Feared man at Bullshido.com, and the Preeminent Force in the martial arts political arena

I took this into account when I looked at the knife stuff. I refused to give a report on the knife stuff until I got more videos on what lead to the techniques. I'm sorry but I don't care what you say , the knife stuff is crap, a lot of the grappling is crap, a lot of the throwing concepts are crap, the gun stuff is mucho crap almost as bad as the knife, kicking super mucho crap, ground grappling 60% crap, self-defense based on the systema movement 85% crap, defensive theory is crap. The only validity I saw in the training was it's need to get the students to relax, but I've found this comes with experiance, and, imo, should not be drilled ad-naseum because it'll eventually come.

He said the knife throwing stuff was pretty good too.
