okay, so here is a question i have about the scene in Predator, when Dutch is getting ready, it has a tri-laser and is beaming it up and down the wrist blades.
Was it cleaning them, or did it think it would have been a quick fight and it wanted that hot knife through butter effect?
It is the only question I have about the movie.

He was sterilizing them. The Predator is very concerned about health and hygiene.
He did not want to risk the possibility of causing Dutch to contract an infection.
Think about how bad the Predator would feel if, when he stabbed a commando in the neck, that victim contracted staphylococcus or hep-C.

This was brought up some time back and the overall consensus here on the boards was that like samauri they clean their blades after each kill or before battle. Heat wouldn't sharpen the blades per say but enough heat would cleanse them. Simple really, when you think about it.

All of your ideas make sense even yours, chickenjug, no Predator wants an AIDs ridled skull on their mantle piece

LOL, Predator concerned with hygiene?...Now that's some funny stuff right there. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Predator, but the Predator looks like he hasn't bathed in months. I've always had the impression he was just performing some basic blade maintenance. Maybe some sharpening, smoothing out nicks. I also believe he was doing this already, when Dutch "called" him to battle.
