R. Lee “Gunny” Ermey, actor and star of the History Channel’s Mail Call and Lock N’ Load TV shows, will make a special appearance during the 30th Annual BLADE Show June 10-12 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta.

 

Gunny will be at the SOG Specialty Knives & Tools booth Saturday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to sign autographs and help introduce his inaugural SOG collaboration knives.

 

A spokesperson for SOG for over one year now, the retired Marine staff sergeant collects knives and Japanese swords, among other blades. His breakthrough role was as Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in the Vietnam War movie, Full Metal Jacket. He also appears as the bald-headed psychoanalyst in the Geico TV commercials who throws the box of tissues at his “patient.”
