An edged weapon expert is an enemy with a knife and they usually run at you without hesitation so you need to watch out.
The first time you encounter these is near the end of Chapter 5 - The Edge.
After the bit where you pick up the sniper there is a long combat part. Once you have completed that, carry on until you are next in combat. (This should be inside another ruined buliding) There are a couple of enemies which you kill first, then you want to get to cover where you just killed them. After a few seconds one of these knife runners will charge at you, just back off the cover and he should jump over. As he is jumping over just kill him and providing you are less than 5 metres away you will get the achievement.

I got this achievement in Chapter 5, just after you fall through the skylight.

You need to take out the guy who wears a beret and runs at you with knife. The important thing to remember is that he must be within 5 meters of you when you kill him.

I've made a video to show where I got this as I'm pretty sure this is the first place you can get it.

Hope this helps but any feedback, please leave a comment.
