When you take this knife into your hand, you'll have no doubt you've had the good fortune to acquire an excellent fixed blade. The updated Bradford Guardian3 has a gorgeous Bohler M390 steel blade with Bradford's signature grind quality, and the drop point is finished in a beautiful black finish. The knife is compact, but super-strong with its full tang construction, weather-proof scales, and pommel crusher. The shaping in the handle and choil, and the heavy jimping on the spine, make choking up on it comfortable and convenient. The piece is strong and sure without weighing too much. Each knife includes a premium leather sheath with belt loop and plastic blade insert.
