Can you sever an attacker's spinal cord in self defense?

I can. I don't know if you have the skills required.

Yes, it's possible to do that. Yes, it may even be lawful, as self-defense is not a crime. The exact liability (if any) for your actions may depend upon the applicable laws, the facts, and other circumstances of your scenario.

If you could legitimately claim self-defense or in defense of someone else. However it may be a tough sell.

You would have to be justified in the use of deadly force. You may use the amount of force necessary to stop a threat, if severing someone's spinal cord is what is necessary for you to stop someone from sticking a knife in you, then it would be justified. If you have the ability to use a less lethal method of stopping a threat, then that is what is expected.

I have no idea but that sounds extremely painful.
