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 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. The blade has a black DLC finish with a false edge grind.
The G-Wood handle is 3D machined for a perfect contoured grip. G-Wood is a stylish new laminate made from thin sheets of stabilized wood with layers of G10 in between. When machined in a contour they produce a beautiful, durable, natural pattern that is extremely appealing and unique.
The knife is accompanied by a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
