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 exceptional Guardian3 features a Super Gold II (SG2) powdered metallurgical (PM) steel combined with the beauty of linear damascus. A high performing Takefu SG2 PM stainless steel core is surrounded by thin layers of stainless damascus steel. The resulting cutting edge is tempered to Rc 62 - 64 (very hard!) for exceptional edge holding, but is easy to sharpen due to the small grain structure. The incredibly small crystalline size of this PM steel results in superior edge holding when compared to nearly any other stainless steel used in the knife industry. This blade features a false edge grind.
The scales are formed from carbon fiber that is machined to offer a secure grip without being abrasive. Carbon fiber scales are set on a full tang for strength and durability. The handle has been 3D machined for a perfect contoured grip.
Each knife includes a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
