I sort of endorse "knives" but they are never attached to a marker. It adds length to your setup and offers no advantage whatsoever.
With a "knife", you don't need it on-gun or even a functional gun on you at all. I've had a player go out knife-killing without a marker at all.
EDIT: The problem with "hand to hand combat" in paintball is that it is a LOT harder to maintain the safety of paintball. Hand to hand is something that can generate real problems, even if you never intended to. Paintball "knifes" and barrel tags should only be done in the sense of a sneaky tactic where they don't see you coming. It should NEVER be a "fight" for safety reasons.
