Description: Bradford knives are made in the Pacific Northwest by Brad Larkin. His background working in an aerospace machine shop is clearly evident in these high performance knives. The Guardian 4.5 is the newest addition to his lineup of high performance outdoor knives.
The Guardian 4.5 is a heavy duty bushcrafting blade based on the Guardian 4, but with a longer handle and a choil-less design. The new handle design accommodates more grip options for a larger variety of tasks.
The blade is made from CPM-3V carbon steel, providing maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistant steel. The blade has a stonewash finish, which helps hide additional scratches and adds a cool look. The sabre ground blade has been double tempered and cryo treated providing maximum edge retention.
The carbon fiber handle is 3D machined for a perfect contoured grip. This is an aerospace grade carbon fiber with a very tight weave. The result is a nearly perfectly polished surface that will have you staring at the inner complexities for hours. A hole at the end of the handle makes it easy to add a lanyard.
Each knife includes a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop.
