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 Guardian3 Flipper (G3F) is a folder designed with hard use in mind. The blade is made from premium M390 powdered stainless steel for extreme edge retention, high strength, and the toughness that a hard-use knife demands. Because of its uniform micro-structure and stainless properties, M390 is often used in surgical cutting instruments and other applications that require a high finish. A long swedge helps reinforce the tip of the knife. The blade has a black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating which creates a non-reflective surface, prevents scratches, and adds a tactical look. The blade can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. The action is silky-smooth and the blade is perfectly centered thanks to a caged bearing system.
The handle is formed from stonewashed, blue anodized titanium. An open frame set on barrel spacers keeps the knife extremely light for its size. Jimping along the spine creates a secure thumb purchase. A large choil cutout works together with the flipper tab to create a guard that prevents your hand from slipping over the blade. The left side has been machine grooved to increase traction while in hand. Blade lock up is ensured with a sturdy frame lock. The lock face is carbidized to avoid lock stick. A drilled hole is included in case a lanyard setup is wanted. The barrel spacers and the lockbar stabilizer have been heat colored bronze for a nice finishing touch. Includes a anodized titanium pocket clip that is mounted for tip-up carry.
