Brand new Guardian3 fixed blade from Bradford Knives with NEW 3D contoured G-Wood (pressed thermoset with thin veneer and G-10) and Full Height Flat ground premium M390 blade steel. The 3 is the perfect size to EDC or throw in your pack. It won't weigh you down and offers plenty cutting edge to handle daily tasks.
The Blade: This is a full tang construction edge-retaining Bohler M390 at 0.145 inches thick. Just over three inches in cutting edge here with a nice working full flat grind. Razor sharp right out of the box with a stonewashed finish. Modified spear point profile is handy for slicing and piercing. Jimping on the thumb rest and forward choil add a nice grip.
The Handle: Thick, 3D machined G-Wood handle scales are a pleasure to grip and fill the palm nicely. They are secured to the tang via 416 stainless custom fasteners heat treated to 40 Rc and dark tumbled.
The brown leather sheath provided completes the package with an awesome horizontal carry system. The Guardian3 from Bradford will fill the need for a quality USA built everyday carry fixed blade and then some.
