I saw it.... not bad actually. But I WANT a knife like the one used by Deltorro's character!!!
The only place that I've seen one that looks like it is in a guns and weapons for law enforcement mag....and that knife, didn't look EXACTLY like his did, and it's MSRP is like $296.00 I think..
Does anybody here know what a knife like that is called?? Or where I could aquire one at a relatively decent price??

Also.... anybody know what kind of fighting style those guys were useing??

The Knife:

Currently only made by TOPS. You might find a cheap knockoff before too long though if it turns out to be popular. :barf:

Fighting Style: Sayoc Kali. A Philipino fighting style. Go here for more info: http://www.sayoc.com/

The knife is called The Tracker. TOPs is the only one making it under the Tracker name.
However, the knives in the movie were made by David Beck (or made from one of his originals, by the prop master), who was the original maker of The Tracker knife, designed by Tom Brown.
Beck is making the knife again, but using a different name, as he is no longer authorized to use the name, his is called the Wilderness Survival Knife.
His site is here: http://www.beckknives.com/

Darn. . . . I was looking forward to a thread on Takeda's sword.

"What do we do if he loses?"
"Takeda will not lose."

Well, lets keep it going then! Have not heard of this movie...when did it come out and who is in it? Is it on the movie channels yet or CD?

The one I'm talking about was a Christopher Lambert movie that was actually surprisingly fun. Lambert is a businessman from New York who has a one-night stand with a beautiful woman in Tokyo and accidentally returns to the hotel in time to witness her murder by Ninja, led by Kinjo, the leader whose face has never been seen. They poison him with shuriken, but he survives, so the Ninja have to hunt him to protect Kinjo. He is protected by a Kenjutsu teacher of ancient Samurai lineage, Takeda, whose family was massacred by the same Ninja clan 150 years ago.

Of course, nothing is as it seems. Very farfetched, but the swordfighting is more enjoyable than in most films. The running swordfight on a high-speed train is worth the price of the DVD.

That train segment of that movie is great, I agree. Those are some mean ninjas.
