I think "I have seen the end of Under Siege a bunch of times" should be an option.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Case of mistaken identity. Fortunately, the mistake was realized before I was killed/maimed.

No, but I saw a girl get stabbed in the arm after having a knife pulled on her during a fight.

A old coworker of mine was also randomly assaulted by a knife wielding assailant in Jamaica and got some nasty stab wounds on both of his hands.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

I have been in an icepick v. screwdriver fight. The icepick (them) lost. It was a really big screwdriver, and they're lucky it didn't get infected. Last I knew the guy didn't limp anymore, so he's got THAT going for him.
He can be fixed -- you can't.

I had a guy pull a knife on me in Gatlinburg when I was a teen, so I pulled the machete I kept behind the driver's seat. He left.

Closest for me was chasing off a burglar with an aluminum bar.

Do juvenile hijinx get included here or is this about being all grown up and such?

Q: Have you ever been in knife fight?
A: Yes.

Knife fighting is silly and quite dangerous. Also a quick way to ruin a nice jacket.

Haven't been in one myself, but once was in a coffee shop late at night where two guys in a fight came in from the street. One had a knife, but hadn't done anything with it. I called 911, but the cops were already there outside.

Yes, to the first four choices.

The bodies are "buried" in swamps all throughout Cambodia and Laos.

Getting into a knife fight with someone who has a knife is silly.
I would only attack someone who is sleeping or really not expecting it.
