Professional Operators Kit
Essentially the POK is a chest rig covered with MOLLE webbing and is work with an infinitely adjustable X harness that distributes the weight of the rig and it's contents across your shoulders without pulling down causing you to go “ruck numb”.
Al Polkowski Polecat
When I really first started getting into going to knife shows about 4 years ago I met Al Polkowski at the New York Custom Knife Show. At a master firearms instructors course several years ago I was involved in some “off line” edged weapons training and was introduced by a classmate to his Polkowski / Kasper Companion. His was a custom and one of the nicest knives I had ever handled.
Philthy's Sidewinder La Griffe Sheath
About three years ago Phil decided he wanted to start making knives. And what do all knives need? Sheaths of course. Again having no talent but lots of ideas I have had him making new skins for all kinds of stuff. A common myth about kydex is that it is easy to work with and there is nothing to it.
Alpha Innovations Kubaton
At the MCS Open Hand / Impact Weapons course, we place a wooden dowel in front of each student just before we cover anatomy. During that block of instruction, students are encouraged to poke and prod their own bodies to identify specific points and judge effectiveness on their own.
Alpha Innovations Jaw Jacker
Modern Combative Systems is proud to announce the Jaw Jacker polymer knuckleduster, a collaboration between George Matheis and Jeff Ferrand at Alpha Innovations.
Foster Brothers Saps and Jacks
As a kid growing up I can remember a blackjack hanging behind the kitchen door of my grandmother's house. It was black basket weave with lead head. My grandmother said that it belonged to my grandfather and that he carried it in the Army.
Sharkee Training Knives
Recently I met with Morgan Thomas President of Sharkee Training Knives in reference to a demonstration of Spontaneous Attack Survival at the Mid Atlantic Tactical Officers Association. Morgan showed me his latest product, a polypropylene training knife made in the size and shape of the common folding knife. Morgan produced this after many requests from law enforcement clients.
Al Mar SERE 2000 as Utility Folder
The knife forums are full of posts with people asking what knife people recommend. Of course everyone has there own opinion as well as drawers full of knives they had to have but don't carry anymore. I am no different except now my kids take my knives.
Todd Foster Coin Sap
Recently I picked up another fine piece of leatherwork from my friend Todd Foster, this time is was one of his Coin Saps. The concept is simple, take a leather pouch, fill it with coins and swing. I am such a fan of centrifugal force.
Rick Hinderer Modular Kubaton
It is not often that I am forced to admit that I find out about a new practical defense tool late.
Well, that is a half-truth, I have knows about Rick Hinderers Kubaton Pens for some time. Truth is that I had just underestimated them. While talking to Rick at the New York Show I began fondling one of his pens. After a brief discussion I ended up using it in one of the MCS demos.
Al Polkowski Bodyguard
There is a lot of time spent discussing the perfect knife. Of course the first question and educated person asks themselves is “what do I plan on doing with it”. If the answer is “carry it everyday in case God forbid I ever need to depend on a knife to protect me from a during a violent attack” I think I found the answer with the Polkowski Bodyguard.
Alpha Innovations Tactical Dog Leash
When my buddy Jeff Ferrand owner of Alpha Innovations and producer of my Jaw Jacker Knuckle Duster told me about his idea for The Tactical Dog Leash I kinda blew it off. Basically the idea is the Jaw Jacker with a hole on the front where you attach the supplied dog leash.
SO Tech Go Bag
The SO Tech Go Bag was designed for aircraft crews as a grab and go back. the first thing that strikes you is the slim profile compared to the normal tear dropped one we are used to with most bags.
Boker Subclaw
The first thing to cross my mind when I opened the Boker Subclaw was that it looked like a folding Emerson La Griffe. The 1 7/8 inch bead blasted blade just looked like it would shred anything it came in contact with. The Subclaw was designed by knifemaker Chad Los Banos AKA Daywalker on the forums.
Raven Concealment Holster
Last weekend while helping out with a pistol course I wore the Raven rig. The first thing that I noticed was how well it fit against the body. I can only describe it as wearing a wide ACE bandage around your waist and sliding a gun in it. Mike tells me this is accomplished by Raven using a pancake design instead of a fold over.
Wilderness Frequent Flyer Belt
I have to tell you that I was not totally sold on the Frequent Flyer because of the Delrin loops instead of the parachute rigger type hardware I had come to know and love. Even though I hate to admit it, I was wrong. This has become my favorite belt.
BladeTech Vellekamp Profili
As I was walking through SHOT 08' with my buddy Duke I commented to him how even in a place as huge as SHOT I usually see about half a dozen new thinks that I rank above “hey that is kinda cool”. Even more so when it comes to knives. I don't really collect and I am not loyal to the newest knives of any specific maker. But every once in a while I run across a knife that I just cannot do without.
Wilderness Titanium Intructors Belt
I have been wearing the Wilderness belts for over a decade and all MCS instructors wear the Frequent Flyer. Well I did until SHOT 08' when I stopped by to see the Wilderness Family and was introduced to the Titanium Instructors Belt.
SO Tech Mission Go Bag
During out conversation Jim showed me the Mission Bag. At first I was not overwhelmed. Just looked like another sling bag. But after picking one up I have to say that it is a great bag that is full of options without trying to be the be all end all, since we all know there is no perfect Bag of Evil, and realize it is all about the pursuit of the “perfect” bag.
Alpha Innovations Stylus
Alpha Innovations has just introduced the Stylus. It is a in the shape of a pen and made out of the same polymer as their Kubatons and the Jaw Jacker. The fact that everyone these days seems to carry a Blackberry or another PDA makes this thing a necessity that attracts no undue attention.
Alan Folts Titanium Chopstix
While attending Davi's Tip of the Blade in NC this summer I got to spend some time with Knifemaker Alan Folts. At previous shows his Ti chopstix had caught my attention but I was always dragged away to something else. Well I got a set from Alan in NC.
