It's a Bonding Knife not a Daisho. Daisho's are samurai weapons. Tau are not samurai. Any resemblance between Bonding Knives and Daishos is purely coincidental

Aye, and the 2nd knife on him is probably a combat knife.

Even if you prefer ranged combat over all other forms a combat knife is a handy thing to have. It can be used for those desperate times when you do have to fight, but it's got lots of other uses. Opening sealed packages, cutting ropes/cords/cables/roots, prying stuff open ect...

The knife has other purposes too
As in 'Starship troopers': 'The enemy can not push a button, if you disable his hand!'

Read the book.

They took one of the coolest bits in the book and made it into the most dumbass stupid scene in the film.

In the book when asked about why they need to know how to use a knife Zim goes into a long and cool speech about why its necessary. In the movie he just maims a recruit.

I hate that movie for so many reasons, and that scene is near the top of the list!

Sorry dude, if that angers you, but I've been looking for the book, and can't find it anywhere...
I am fairly certain the book's better than the Paul Verhoeven ripoff, but until I get the book, I only have the film to refer to, see?
Hope to find it soon, though...

Look in used book stores. Failing that go to a bigger store and buy a new copy there.

If that still doesn't work give me your address and a solemn promise you'll mail it back when you're done and I'll ship you my copy.

The movie is ok for a laugh, but that's about it.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

I go to used book stores regularly, once every two weeks, and once a month to Fnac (a book superstore)
Mailing the book, seems very nice, but uh, I live in Belgium (yes at last he tells), isn't that a long way away?
Though recently my mother found a booksite, sort of ebay for books, I'll try there then first.
But I honestly thank you for the offer, really
Wish I had some book to lend in return, not by any chance Pratchett or King fan?
