By "knives", do you mean the little knives he has in the pic? Or the bladed tonfa that he actually USED through the movie? He's pretty featless with the knives.
Even so, I think Karl has this. Not only is he essentially totally invincible, he was EXTREMELY FREAKING BADASS and among the coolest characters to ever set foot onto a movie screen. Karl Kroenen's voiceless-coolness factor is almost on par with Darth Maul's, and that, along with his sheer pimpness, and Norman's lack of added mobility via glider, gives him a solid win.
