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 Guardian 3.5 is based on the Guardian 3, but with a longer 4 finger handle and a choil-less design. This compact fixed blade is designed to handle the work load that might typically fall upon a heavy duty everyday folder.
The blade is made from Bohler M390 stainless steel with a double temper and cryo treatment for exceptional edge holding. It has a Nimbus finish with a sabre grind. To create the Nimbus finish, the blade first received a DLC coating and then is tumbled the same way the stonewash finish is created. This creates a non-reflective surface that also hides scratches.
The scales are formed from black micarta. The handle is 3D machined for a perfect contoured grip and offers plenty of comfortable grip options. A tapped hole at the end of the handle makes it easy to add a lanyard.
The knife is accompanied by a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
