Bradford Guardian3 False Edge GPK Exclusive Stonewashed Rex 45 3D Carbon Fiber Fixed Blade
The Bradford Guardian3 is a compact, American made, everyday carry fixed blade that makes a perfect belt-carry companion for urban or outdoor use. Built to replace the modern EDC folding knife, the Guardian3 has a compact size that is easy to carry while still providing plenty of edge for your cutting needs. This GPKnives Exclusive has a false edge blade of stonewashed CPM Rex 45 tool steel and 3D contoured carbon fiber handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Bradford Knives.
Blade: The modified spear point CPM Rex 45 tool steel blade has a strong false edge swedge and over three inches of razor sharp cutting edge. A heavy stonewashed finish hides wear, while thumb jimping and a generous forward choil offer a secure grip for control in use.
Handle: 3D contoured carbon fiber handle scales provide comfortable ergonomics and a secure, hand filling grip with elevated style. Heat treated black oxide 416 stainless custom fasteners attach the scales to the full tang for rock solid construction.
Carries via a stitched leather horizontal belt sheath.
CPM Rex 45: CPM Rex 45 (similar to Hitachi HAP40) is a super-high-speed, particle metallurgy tool steel similar to CPM-M4. Higher hardness increases strength and edge stability for thinner, high performance edges with some reduction in toughness. Corrosion resistance is comparable to CPM-M4.
