SP134CFP: C134CFP Gayle Bradley
For those not familiar with Gayle Bradley, he produces handmade folders and fixed-blades. He's a Texan who started making custom knives in 1988 and when customers discovered his handmades, his reputation mushroomed, tagging him as a knifemaker who focused on building exceptional knives for hard-use. We believe you will find the Spyderco collaboration impressive not only in its performance abilities but in it's fine appearance as well.

Several years ago Gayle won a BladeSports World Cutting Competition further expanding his reputation by claiming his title with a fixed-blade that plowed through everything including eleven-inches of hanging rope. Bradley knives aren't for fingernail cleaners or showmen but for use down on the ground getting gritty and dirty. His first collaboration with a production company we're glad to say is with Spyderco. The C134 Gayle Bradley Folder pulls together his reputational forte; anteing up a hard-use folder design to which Spyderco added an exotic and premium blade steel and an unexpected touch of gentrification. 

The blade is hollow-ground satin finished Crucible Steel CPM M4. Original M4 made its good name as a tool steel with high resistance to impact. Crucible's version incorporates their CPM powdered metal manufacturing process with M4 creating a superfine, consistent steel-grain structure heightening its' already impressive impact resistance even more. Its modified drop-point blade also has a weight-reducing swedge located at the spine. 

The handle is twill carbon fiber/G-10 laminate with a Michael Walker LinerLock for safe, secure lock up while adding a refined, gentlemanly appearance. Inside are two full-length internal liners adding rigidity to the handle that has screw- together construction for adjustments or cleaning. A four-way hourglass clip lets you choose to carry the folder; tip-up/tip-down, left/right handed.

Pros: Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Weight, None
Sexy High Class
Great knife. Love the blade material. M2 is awesome and stays sharp and not difficult to sharpen with diamond Lansky. Not stainless but no problem with rust - just keep it clean and dry. A bit heaving in the dress pants but excellent overall. Cuts anything easily. Love Spyderco. Have a Manix XL as well for more tortuous use. Going for a dragonfly ZDP-189 next for light weight EDC. Great looks high class and Sexy!

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Lock Type, None
My boyfriend loves the knife. It is a great eveyday blade to have on or around. It is extremely sturdy. The clasp to put the blade away is a little tight and hard to get a finger into push it over. Other than that, great purchase. Two very big thumbs up.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Spyderco quality and premium materials
No finger gurad, so probably no the best choice for self defense, er, scratch, scratch, emergency use. But I always wanted to get a knife with M4 steel blade. And I know I could trust Spyderco quality. I am not disappointed. This knife is beautiful and would make a great EDC or work knife. It is very sturdy. This lock bar is a beast! I was also surprised how smooth the opening is. Single handed closing is a bit of a problem though, not that it concerns me.
