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 version of the Guardian 3 uses Vanadis 4 Extra tool steel. Vanadis 4 Extra 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. The blade has a black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating which creates a non-reflective surface, protects the blade, and adds a cool tactical look.
Camouflage G10 scales are diamond textured to offer a secure grip without being abrasive. The handle fills your hand comfortably and offers a variety of grip options. A tapped hole at the end of the handle makes it easy to add a lanyard.
This knife includes a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
