Pistol is directed, so the only obstacle is it jumping around - penalty to hit.
Knife is swung or thrust, you need to both aim it and deliver a technically correct strike. It's the question of more stuff to do.

Most videos that might be produced to portray 'how it is IRL' involve a man closing in via Move, and then using All Out Attack to both approach the target and then strike at a bonus.

Move & Attack portrays strike on the run, or run-by strike, which is harder to do than simply stopping the run when you're in range and then thrusting/swinging.
