IMO the splitter/riving knife is more important than the guard because it helps prevent kickback. I’m sure it’s better to use both, but many stock blade guards are so cumbersome and obscure the view that I tended to not use them. A year or so ago I added the BORK Blade Guard to my BORK riving knife and actually like it because I can see… so I use it!
