This Guardian 3 model has a stonewash finished blade with a false edge grind and 3D camo Micarta handle scales.
The Guardian3 is a relatively 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 characteristics. Machined micarta scales offer a comfortable grip without being abrasive. Each knife includes a premium 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 is well-versed in machining and has a passion for knives that comes though in his finished product.
- BladeHQ Service: Blade was shipped promptly and received within 2 days. - Sharpness: This is one of the sharpest knives I've received out of the box. Very happy with how sharp it was. - Blade feel: The metal has a great look and a very nice smooth feel. - Blade / Handle size: It is the perfect EDC size for a fixed blade, the blade is as long as most of my folders but the grip is about an inch shorter since it's a fixed blade. Which is good for not taking up a lot of space in the pocket. - Leather sheath: The leather feels nice, it's trimmed down to not take up a lot of space. The only downside is the belt loop is VERY tight, impossible to get my belt through without stretching. I've bought 2 other holsters for different scenarios so it's not a concern. - Weight: Very light for what it is.
