Brand new, direct from Bradford Knives, USA.
Blade: The full tang construction is made from +5 mm thick CPM-3V tool steel with five inches of razor sharp cutting edge. A high sabre grind on the modified spear point offers a great balance of strength and cutting performance to handle nearly any task. Jimping on the spine paired with the large forward choil offer optimal control for detail work and added leverage for heavy tasks. Bradford's Nimbus finish blends the best of non-reflective DLC and wear hiding stonewashed finishes for a knife that is discreet in use while looking great over time.
Handle: Canvas Micarta handle scales are 3D contoured with a generous palm swell for comfort and security in a variety of grips. An index cutout creates an integral guard which pairs with aggressive spine jimping to keep the knife secure in-hand during use. Flared at the pommel, the handle locks the hand in offering a nice, comfortable grip for even XL hands. A generous hole at the pommel allows for lanyard attachment. The scales are secured to the tang via 416 stainless custom fasteners heat treated to 40 Rc for long-lasting security.
Sheath: Carries via a black MOLLE Nylon sheath with front storage pocket.
CPM-3V: is a high carbon alloy steel that 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.
