Got absolutely nothing to do with throwing a knife, from google:

The 21-foot rule was developed by Lt. John Tueller, a firearms instructor with the Salt Lake City Police Department. Back in 1983, Tueller set up a drill where he placed a "suspect" armed with an edged weapon 20 or so feet away from an officer with a holstered sidearm.

The Tueller drill is more or less a requirement in defensive pistol training.

Well, the thought seems to be that 21 feet represents about two seconds for a knife guy to get close enough to stab somebody, and that is the reaction time needed for a cop to,draw, and fire to defend himself. Sounded logical to me. And by the way, I grew up throwing knives at a distance of thirty feet or so. Twenty one feet is no challenge.

James Caan, as the character Mississippi, in the movie El Dorado, could unsheath his knife from behind his neck and get the bad guy before his gun could clear leather.
Yep!

James Coburn in the movie "Magnificent Seven" threw his knife before the other Cowboy could draw.

but, but, but.......Mississippi could not shoot. He ended up shooting John Wayne in the butt with a shotgun blast.
Seems odd with the hand-eye coordination necessary for the knife skills, but that is what makes it fun!

Did a couple more photos, then in nature in natural light.

Interestingly, the butt of handle has a slight twist. I also had it when I made a knife for myself. Very convenient actually.

My bowie handle is nearly straight back on right side, flared to left and drops away to that side for my right hand, keeping knife centered in hold, and all quite intentional.

Nice to see a non-bowie.

That's a rare Bagwell. He has been exclusively making Bowies for the past 25 years.
