Title: A Knife Surgeon says....
Post by: Hock on April 22, 2015, 10:34:47 AM
These are some comments from a surgeon with martial arts experience on knife injuries he's treated, posted on my old talk forum many years ago. Interesting to read.

    "...anyway, the upshot is killing someone with a blade isn't as easy as it looks on TV. The scene where someone gets stabbed in the belly, then looks shocked, then drops dead is unrealistic. Either a fair amount of damage needs to be done, some very vital structures injured, or a fair amount of time to pass if the wounds aren't horrendous in order for someone to die from stab or slash wounds..."
