Yes, fatal stabbings are terrible and, depending on circumstances, are usually worse than gun shots...
I think stabbings are much more intimate, more personal.
Remember the Tom Hanks movie, 'Saving Private Ryan'?
A scene from the movie shows a soldier fighting in close quarters fisticuffs with another soldier. They wrestle around until, eventually, one soldier
gains control of a knife as-well-as being on top of his adversary. The guy on the bottom uses all his strength to avoid the imminent stabbing.
The man on top over-powers the strength of the man on bottom, and we see the knife begin to creep closer to the man's chest. Realizing it is the end,
the man on bottom has direct eye contact with his murderer. As the knife slides slowly into his chest, the murderer can be heard whispering what seems
to be words of comfort to the man he is slowly killing.
I know it is cinema, but I have a feeling this is a pretty accurate portrayal of a murder in the circumstances.
An incredibly impactful scene.
