No, you cannot. The Rulebook specifically describes it as the killing blow
to the heart. I think of it, kind of like the "quickening" in "Highlander"
except instead of whopping off someone's head, you're stabbing them through
Ya can't do that with a spell. Mayhap the blade actually connects to the
center of someone's BL at the instant of death and transfers teh BL up
through the blade, into the recipient. Such a transfer couldn't happen
with a spell being cast, or an arrow shot, or even a blow to the head.
If they aren't regents, they don't have THAT much use of their BL anyway.
I mean, they _might_ get a few more bloodabilities--
Otherwise, they don't--or they could stab the people through the heart,
whether in conjunction with a hold person, or whatever. Personally,
bloodtheft seems like a pretty iffy proposition anyway, and just isn't that
common in any case, and some might argue the whole affects alignment have
on intentionally killing other humans of arguable evil intent.
