Description: Bradford Knives are made in the Pacific Northwest. His background working in an aerospace machine shop is clearly evident in these high performance knives.
The Bradford Knives Guardian3 is a compact fixed blade that is designed to handle the work load that might typically fall upon a heavy duty everyday folder. This sprint run of the Guardian 3 uses Uddeholm Vanadis 4 Extra SuperClean tool steel. Vanadis 4E is a powder metallurgical cold work tool steel produced by Bohler in Austria. This steel is known for providing a combination of high wear and chipping resistance. This makes it particularly useful for heavier tasks where chipping is likely to be the failing point, but high wear resistance is still needed. A DLC finish reduces light reflection and helps protect the blade during use.
The scales are formed from natural Micarta that is machined to offer a secure grip without being abrasive. Micarta scales are set on a full tang for strength and durability. The handle has been 3D machined for a perfect contoured grip.
Accompanied by a premium Kydex sheath to keep the blade protected during transportation.
