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 Nimbus finish reduces light reflection and adds a cool look.
The carbon fiber handle has been 3D machined for a perfect contoured grip. This is an aerospace grade carbon fiber with a very tight weave. The result is a nearly perfectly polished surface that will have you staring at the inner complexities for hours.
Accompanied by a premium Kydex sheath to keep the blade protected during transportation.
