Bradford Knives Guardian4 Knife 3D Camo Micarta (False Edge/N690/SW)


  • Stonewashed drop point blade made from Bohler N690.
  • Green camo micarta handle.
  • Classic leather sheath for secure carry.


The Guardian4 joins the Bradford Knives lineup, offering a larger blade that is well-suited for camping and hiking activities. It shares the same design as the Guardian3 and is available in a false edge (swedge) or sabre grind, with several blade finish options. The choil is designed to easily strike a ferro rod. Each knife includes a premium leather sheath with a protective plastic blade insert and is set up for vertical carry.

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 is seen in his finished product.

Customer Reviews

Steve P. on Jul 7, 2022

This is my second and probably last Bradford Knife. These Knives are well designed and have quality material, they are very crudely finished. Both of my Bradfords came with excessively sharp points on the micarta scales at the pommel that had to be smoothed before the knives were comfortable to handle. The edge grind on this knife was extremely coarse and wouldn't cut paper out of the box. The other issue I have is that the grind on one side of the blade about an inch back from the tip has a visible dip that runs the width of the blade, which can also be felt as if the guy working on the knife sneezed while he was working on shaping the blade. It doesn't affect the function of the blade, but, and maybe it's just me, I don't think that a knife that costs a hundred and sixty bucks should go out for sale with this kind of flaw. That said the knife is well-designed and has good ergonomics, and should make a very good all-purpose wood knife if you don't mind helping the manufacturer finish it, so if I lost it or damaged it, I probably wouldn't replace it.
