Safety Tip # 312

Never run with a knife. Unless you are engaged in Close Quarters Battle (CQB), in which case running with a knife and a pistol is deemed appropriate.

Also, if you must run with a knife, it is preferable to hold it blade out (almost the same grip you'd use for an overhand stab, with the difference being that the blade should point up rather than down -- this is the grip Rambo uses in First Blood) so that if you trip and fall to the ground on your hands the knife won't kill you.

This also goes for walking with a knife.

Excellent point. I'll have to write that up as safety tip # 313.
