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 and full saber grind. 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.
G10 handles, which measure 1/2 inch thick, are machined to offer a secure grip without being abrasive. G10 scales are set on a full tang for strength and durability.
Each knife includes a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
Bradford Knives are made in the Pacific Northwest, and while relatively new to the knife making scene Bradford Larkin is well-versed in machining and has a passion for knives that is clearly evident.
