And if the backup fails? Knives are for cqb. Can't stick a shotgun when someone is 3 inches from you.

Then have a handgun for backup if you have to get close up and personal. You can only have so many backups if the shotgun and handgun is not enough then you are having a bad day.

Stuff goes wrong. I have been in situations where backups after backup was needed

While I agree with "My home defense knife is a gun", I do like edged weapons. I have picked them up here and there over the years. Here's a random drawers' worth.
