    Does anyone have data about the most common street knife attacks?

    This may have been posted elsewhere but I thought this would be the best place

    I was wondering if anyone knew the most common knife attack scenarios in street situations were? I would imagine it would be torso stabs or head slashes buy I wasn't sure, plus I had a look around and couldn't find anything.

    It might just be I suck at looking for this kind of thing but any links or info would be appreciated.

    Check the FBI stats. I doubt you'll get "downward slash" versus "straight thrust" type info, but it's very useful data. Google "fbi violent crime statistics."

    I'm sure there is more info out there. You might want to focus your search on the UK. Stabbings are pretty common there.

    Thats very interesting, thanks for that link. But I don't really know what "chop and drag blow" mean, can someone explain it so I can visualize it more clearly?

    Fights that end with a lethal knife wound is something that is too common in Israel, unfortunately.
