    Well...none of my concealment knives will have guards, so you probably won't buy this one either..

    Different blades with different killing. I look forward to using as a new hold out blade, and the blade design is ideal. It's not a bowie so there is no need for a guard. And NOBODY carries a bowie more than I do! :)

    The shape and texture of the current version G'n'S scales make for the most secure knife grip I have ever held without a ring or a hilt. Dip it in motor oil and go crazy on a big tire or whatever. It's not happening going to move. The grip shape provides maximal versatility for a wharncliffe blade, and that texture sets the standard for grip security.

    Same goes for the GU. Same texture and a grip that provides maximum utility and versatility in the smallest, most concealable size and shape.

    That may be so, and I would buy one of I could put my hands on one before.

    I do understand the concealment issues and that adding a guard adds bulk.

    I have a Gang Unit and love it. Maybe I should give the GnS a try.

    I think the issue has more to do with snagging on the draw than bulk or difficulty in concealment.

    I am not going to have guards on these because they aren't necessary, nor important on this kind of blade. if that is a deal - breaker, then it is what it is. On BIG KNIVES it a different deal...on these...no.
