SP134CFP: C134CFP Gayle Bradley
Spyderco
 
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.

An absolute gem.
I'll try to keep it short... I was very interested in CPM-M4 and purchased this almost on a whim due to curiosity. I have to admit that initially I was rather unimpressed by it, however it grew on me very quickly. The flipping action is superb, the handle feels incredible (hand size possibly an issue) and the steel is seriously one of the best. Some people claim that they can do this and that with a knife and still, "shave hair" after "hard use", but this is a true contender for that title. If you're honestly looking at this knife and are thinking about it, this is truly worth the price tag. I cannot stress this enough. The only possible negative is that some may be turned off due to weight.

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!
