The only two I felt I had a positive ID on (besides the Harpy of course) was the Kabar on the far left and a Gerber Trident on the far right.

That show has definately got me hooked.

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like an effective guard. Does anyone know the brand name of the guards that Mike J. uses for MBC arm guards?
