Brand new Guardian4 fixed blade from Bradford Knives with Red G-10 and False Edge ground premium M390 blade steel. The 4 is the perfect size to slide on your belt for a hunt or throw in your pack. It's a step up from the 3 for larger cutting tasks and those with larger hands.
The Blade: This is a full tang construction edge-retaining Bohler M390 at 0.165 inches thick. Just over four inches in cutting edge here with a nice, strong false edge grind. Razor sharp right out of the box with a Black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated 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 removable/interchangeable Red G-10 handle scales are heavily diamond-textured for a sure grip in any environment. They are secured to the tang via 416 stainless custom fasteners heat treated to 40 Rc and dark finished.
A rich, dark brown leather belt sheath is included for vertical waist carry. The Guardian4 from Bradford will fill the need for a quality USA built hard-use fixed blade and then some.
