I'm looking for an anime where there is a knife fighter MC or SC, That pretty much answers what i have been wanting to watch. I don't know what it is but when someone pulls a knife out in anime to fight that character is instantly my favorite... If any of you know what animes have what I'm looking for I would appreciate the help in finding it.

Hitsugi no Chaika/Chaika the Coffin Princess might be a good fit. It's a shounen (compared to Kara no Kyoukai's seinen), and has a pretty imaginative setting. If you want something more lighthearted, it's a nice watch, but in most cases I'd second Kara no Kyoukai over it. Chaika's available here on Crunchy, though.

MC in "Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?" uses a knife and it's on here.

First of all Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic is awesome, one of the MCs uses a knife for a good long time.

Also, if you haven't seen it, Durarara, because Izaya is pretty awesome, if not also a total jerk.

In Soul Eater, Black Star uses a dagger a lot.

And you've probably seen it, but Fullmetal Alchemist is a great show. The MC uses a trick that essentially functions like a dagger, though it might not be what you're looking for...

I know how you feel though. Any time someone pulls out a scythe or a dagger, instant likes... Might be why Soi Fon was my favorite captain in Bleach... Well maybe it was more the whole "I touch you, you die" thing, that's a pretty awesome ability.

I believe Durarara may be the only one of those on Crunchyroll though, so I'll also vote for Kara no Kyoukai, though I can't call that a knife...

Arslan Senki - The priestess is a knife fighter when not using the bow.
on Funimantion and Hulu

Fate/stay night - Caster has a dagger called Rule Breaker, but is not shown much. Archer, however, uses blades that are either large knives or short swords.

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA - A version of Archer shows up in episode six of the first season (one of the top ten fights of 2013) and becomes a regular character in season two.

Nobunagun - Not sure what you would call the bladed weapon Jack uses, but it does split into smaller blades.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/nobunagun

Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers- Hans is a knife fighter and Nachetanya creates flying bladed weapons of all sizes.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/rokka-braves-of-the-six-flowers-

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma - Everyone is breaking out knives in this show. The fights are all cooking battles, but are just as action packed in their own way. Warning - Do not watch while hungry. Also kinda Ecchi.

Firo and Chane fight with knives in Baccano. They're both secondary characters although in one fight Firo fights hand to hand too.
