This knife has a black DLC finished blade with a sabre grind, and 3D carbon fiber 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 scales offer extreme 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.

Duke J.
Handled hundreds (maybe thousands) of blades in my lifetime. This is the first one in a couple years that really blew me away. Feels a little small in my medium-large hands but doesn't prevent a grip that gives full leverage and there's virtually no hot spots. The added thickness of the carbon fiber scales towards the base of the handle give such a comfortable feel I forget how I prefer jimping on the choil. My only issue is I would like the sheath to be a bit tighter. The knife won't fall out unless given a hard shake, essentially trying to make it fall out. But I'd like a tighter hold or even a snap strap for piece of mind knowing I won't lose it. This single purchase has me wanting a guardian 4 and is making me believe I may become a Bradford collector. So, be warned. Bradford bug bites hard.
