Lethal knife wounds

Setting: Early 1800's secondary world
Search terms: lethal stab wound, fatal stab wound, lethal knife wound

I need an injury made to order. A character gets into a fight and is stabbed several times with a knife. His wounds need to be lethal, but not immediately so. The character needs to be able to launch a feeble last ditch attack and remain lucid enough to talk for another two to three minutes. If it matters, the knife he's being stabbed with is similar to this one. I need to know what areas of the body will deliver what I'm looking for and what organs are likely to be hit in the attack.
