Bradford Guardian3 False Edge Nimbus M390 3D Natural Micarta Fixed Blade
The next evolution of the Guardian3 fixed blade from Bradford Knives comes with thick, 3D contoured scales and a false edge ground, high performance Bohler M390 blade. The 3 is the perfect size to EDC or throw in your pack. It won't weigh you down and offers plenty of cutting edge to handle daily tasks. This version comes with a Nimbus finish and Natural Canvas Micarta scales.
Blade: Full tang construction of Bohler's high performance M390 stainless steel delivers excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance that is perfect for extended daily use and carry. With just over three inches of cutting edge and a strong false edge upper swedge the blade comes razor sharp right out of the box. Outfitted with Bradford's Nimbus Finish (tumbled DLC) to hide the wear the blade is discreetly non-reflective in use. A modified spear point profile is handy for slicing and piercing while jimping on the thumb rest and forward choil offer a secure grip.
Handle: Comfortably contoured 3D Micarta handle scales are perfect 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. An exposed pommel section allows for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a horizontal carry, stitched brown leather sheath.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its exceptional edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is the ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
