Consider the merits of the knife. In the first place, you have to catch up with someone in order to stab him. A general substitution of knives for guns would promote physical
fitness. We'd turn into a whole nation of great runners.

Plus, knives don't ricochet. And people are seldom killed while cleaning their knives."
They taught us back in the academy (way back in the day) if you don't have a gun on you, you go for a gun but run from a knife. The reasoning is that you can't outrun a bullet but if you fight with a knife you are guaranteed to get cut. I always made sure to bring a gun to any knife fights I went to.

It has also been my experience having back packed all over the US in the 70's, 80's and 90's that you seldom need more than a small pocket knife for survival. I've done weeks out in the boonies with nothing more than a small Swiss Army Knife.

Personally I think the survival knife thing is way overblown. But hey, knives are cool so go for it.
