Bradford knives--good, bad? Login/Join

Anyone have one? I like the looks of their Guardian 3.5 but have never seen one in real life. Anyone with any experience with them?

They seem to be well regarded in knife forum’s I’ve seen but I haven’t held one myself.
Not outrageously expensive but not on the lowest end of the price range either.

Bradford makes nice knives, and they're good to deal with too. I couldn't find the model I wanted on his website, so I e-mailed him asking when he planned to make the one I wanted. He got right back to me, saying to go ahead & order what I want & he'll make it. I did & it was in the mail the next day.

The one pictured above is a G3. I should clarify my previous post. The model that I wanted was showing "out of stock" on his website for some time, and I e-mailed him to ask when he'd be making the next run of that particular model. He must have had some blade blanks of that model in his shop, so he made one for me the same day with my choice of scales.

Here's the G3.5:


And a comparison:


The horizontal sheaths are easily concealed with just an untucked t-shirt. Obviously, the G3 is more easily concealed that the 3.5. He also has kydex sheaths available on his website.

I have the G3. Nice size and shape. I was dissapointed at the finnish work for the price point. I did contact and let them know. I had to dremel down the handle at the back. Overall good quality blade.

I have a G3 that has been a super knife for me when I carry a fixed blade. Very happy with it and the size

Good knives! I have the Guardian 3, can't recall which steel but a great knife. Also have two of the kitchen knives in AEB-L steel.
