From BlogIdaho: Why Cops Shoot Guys with Knives  (Warning: Some graphic photos, not for the squeamish!) BTW, shallow slashing wounds to the torso of the type shown are not often fatal. It is either wounds to the neck or deep penetrating wounds to the abdomen (typically angled upward, from just under the ribcage) followed immediately by lateral motion of the blade tip that are the real killing wounds. (The latter is what one of my Army training NCOs referred to as “massive surgery without benefit of anesthetic.”) Unfortunately these are the techniques that career criminals often teach each other in prison. A knife can be an effective weapon in the hands of someone that knows what they are doing. Beware. Do not let an opponent get close enough to employ these techniques.

Brenda at Mountain Brook Foods  mentioned that they are having a huge liquidation sale, with 25-50% off selected items, and 40% off year supply packages from now until Feb 19th. This sale might be of particular interest to SurvivalBlog readers in Northern California. (Mountain Brook Foods is located in Tracy, California. This could be a great opportunity to pick up your order in person to save on shipping.)
