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 Bradford Knives Guardian5 is a heavy duty fixed blade built to withstand the toughest applications. It is a favorite amongst military and law enforcement – both on and off duty. Whether you’re looking for a knife to aid you while fishing, camping, providing first aid or just for protection, the Guardian5 has got you covered.
Bradford Knives uses CPM-3V carbon steel, providing maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistant steel. The blade has a nimbus finish, a tumbled DLC coating which helps hide additional scratches and adds a cool look. The Sabre ground blade has been double tempered and cryo treated. While the blade was designed for heavy duty chores such as chopping, prying and batoning, it also has both a notched thumb ramp and choil for superior cutting control.
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.
Each knife includes a ballistic nylon sheath for easy carry.
