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. Bradford Knives uses Bohler M390 steel with a double temper and cryo treatment for exceptional blade edge holding. The blade has a Nimbus finish with a swedge. To create the Nimbus finish, Brad coated the blade with a DLC coating then tumbled the blade the same way the stonewash finish is created.
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 durable, nearly perfect polished surface that will have you staring at the inner complexities for hours.
Each knife includes a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
