Bradford Knives Guardian4 Full Flat Grind 3D G-Wood Nimbus 3V Fixed Blade Knife
The Bradford Guardian4 is a mid-size, American made fixed blade that makes a perfect belt-carry companion for hunting or outdoor adventures. A step up from the EDC Guardian3, the Guardian4 was built to handle heavier cutting tasks and for users with larger hands. This version of the Guardian4 comes with a fully flat ground, Nimbus finished CPM 3V blade and micro textured G-Wood handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Bradford Knives, USA.
Blade: Made from ultra tough, +4 mm thick CPM 3V, drop point blade is fully flat ground for excellent slicing performance. Classic and utilitarian, the drop point works well for a variety of tasks including piercing and detail work with added control provided via the full size index finger choil and spine jimping. The blade is outfitted with the Bradford Nimbus finish, a stonewashed black PVD that is both discreetly non-reflective and highly effective at hiding wear from use.
Handle: Dual layered G-Wood scales are supported by the full tang construction and are easily removable for cleaning and maintenance. Milled with a full 3D contour, the scales are comfortable and ergonomic while offering a secure grip. G-Wood is a layered G10 and Wood composite that provides the warmth of natural wood with the performance of G10 composite and a visually stunning, high contrast look. The scales are secured to the tang via black oxide finished 416 stainless custom fasteners heat treated to 40 Rc for durable security. An exposed portion of the tang at the pommel has a hole for lanyard attachment for added retention.
Carries via a stitched, dark brown leather, vertical carry belt sheath.
CPM-3V: is a high carbon alloy steel that is extremely tough and has enough chromium to have some corrosion resistance. However, care is required to prevent corrosion. The edge can be ground thin as it is tough enough to support a fine edge. 3V delivers the highest level of toughness while maintaining good edge retention.
