I really like the looks of the fixed blade in the picture on this mercharness page...

That could be a Ken Brock knife... George aka Mercop would know for sure.

Ken Brock and Les George are working on a collab now that looks similar.

Looks like some Cold Steal cheapie to me...and the way she's wearing it (simple loop over her arm), it's going to slide right off.

Essentially, the “Mercharness” is a figure-8 shaped harness that is constructed of strong “para-cord” and rubber stops or beads for adjustment.

Overly complicated application for sort of a simple neck knife.
I do not like the ring.

If she is right handed it in the wrong side.

There are simpler, better choices. The Wheeler, Breed, and Sams Kiri come to mind.

John,

That does look a bit like the CS Double Agent (except it isn't), but take another look at the carry system. She's wearing a Merchharness (essentially a paracord X-back shoulder holster system) by George Matheis. George posts occasionally here.

Wellll, I got beat to the ID on the carry system!

BikerDoc , " Overly complicated application for sort of a simple neck knife." , having worn both a MERC harness and a neck knife carried in the standard neck knife carry , I will always choose the MERC harness as it keeps the knife put without sliding around on your chest like a basic loop does.

Works extremely well with an over garment.

Perhaps not for everyone, but a way better option than just looping a piece of paracord around your neck and hanging a sheathed knife from it.

PS. I asked MERCOP last night , and he wasnt sure what the knife was , the image was taken by someone else ( Noah Walt of THurst Magazine I assume ).

hso, it appears to be a simple loop, not worn as the Merchharness.

Well thanks for the help guys, I like the ring pommel design for it's added retention and perhaps additional value as a single finger brass knuckle.

John,

You may not be able to see the text, and it is difficult to impossible to tell from the photo, but the text in the "review" explains it.
