This Guardian4 model features a Peters' heat treated Bohler M390 steel blade with a sabre grind and a stonewash finish. The handle is fitted with 3D G-Wood scales.
The Guardian4 offers a larger blade that is well-suited for camping and hiking activities. It shares the same design as the Guardian3 and is available in several blade finish options. The choil is designed to easily strike a ferro rod and the handle has 3D scales that provide a full, comfortable grip (spanner #6 is required to remove scales). Each knife includes a premium leather sheath with a protective plastic blade insert and is set up for vertical carry.
Overall fit and finish of the blade is excellent. Comes very sharp out of the box. Handle thickness was more than I was expecting as I have medium sized hands. Blade stock is nice and beefy for hard use. The sheath is pretty thin and stiff, and finishing on it is average and could be better for the price. Blade shape is excellent for usability.
