Calif. officer shoots man wielding large knives

P-1 Editor's Note --
There is a commonly held view that a person armed with a knife is less dangerous than a person armed with a firearm. The truth is that within their practical ranges, both weapons are capable of fatal life-stopping wounds. 

• One in three chance that if faced with a subject who had an edged weapon, you will be attacked and injured
• Attacks with edged weapons usually occur when you least expect them
• The majority of “street” type people carry some kind of edged weapon be it legal or illegal.
