The big question: Knife or Bat?


#1

We all know the true answer which is a knife.


#2

Bat! Man. Bats are great. Range and hard. I LIKE IT.


#3

Bat all the way. You have range and just have to hit the knife hand or arm hard enough to disarm them.


#4

Knives are crazy sharp.

They’ll carve you like a holiday ham.

Try to carve a holiday ham with a bat. Go ahead, I’ll wait.


#5

Bat. I don’t care about the arguments I just know what my heart says.


#6

I’m going with a knife. I’m weak and clumsy in a big way, so I’d probably just dislocate my arm with a hard bat swing. I’ll take the knife, and I’ll just throw myself at my opponent like a big dumb idiot with the pointy end of the knife in the middle. Who’s clumsy now??? (It’s still me but you’ve got a knife in you)


#7

Can a knife fly? Does a knife have supersonic hearing? Can a knife transform into a handsome vampire man? Didn’t think so.


#8

It is impossible to beat a bat.

As evidenced by the 2005 nature documentary, “Batman Begins.”


#9

A sword is basically a knife and a bat mixed together if you really think about it.


#10

A bat could easily be used to disarm someone wielding a knife so bat


#11

I’m not dignifying this with a response


#12

Bat. Always bat.


#13

Hotline Miami already answered this.

Bat kill = 1 knockdown + execution

Knife = 1 hit ko baby


#14

Definitely bat, cause I know how to swing a bat but I know nothing about knife fighting


#15

A police baton is a knife sized bat.


#16

I feel like I could train and learn how to fight with a knife more effectively than with a bat. It’s not like I can take a baseball bat to kendo training.


#17

Based on my experience? Bat has reach.

Spear or light polearm are best h2h weapons

(disclaimer: all combat involved was with padded weapons)


#18

personally I would take the knife because I am absolutely terrified of being stabbed and I don’t want to put myself at a psychological disadvantage


#19

Gonna go for knife, if I’m the one fighting- I have big, spindly arms, they won’t service a bat very well but a knife would be super easy. If it’s two people at their critical best, however, I’m gonna say bat wins through distance alone.


#20

Damn it, not this. Also knife.
