Bradford Knives
The Guardian3 flipper is an ideal everyday carry knife and represents Bradford Knives first folding model. Originally designed as a 3.5" fixed blade knife with a full tang, it was a great tool that could be easily carried and concealed on your belt so you can use it throughout the day. The Flipper version is the same way with the convenience of being pocket-friendly. Whether you're working in a warehouse, with wiring or boxes, or you just need to open a bottle at home, the Guardian3 can take care of it. This model features a 3.25" Bohler M390 stainless steel blade with a stonewashed finish and matching titanium handles. The flipping action is crisp and deliberate, riding on caged bearings and the knife features a lockbar stabilizer and lanyard hole. It is built to last for years through everyday use and was proudly made in Kent, Washington USA.

Great knife!
My G3 flipper didn't have any issues! Great knife. Perfect fit and finish! Super sharp blade! Flips great and looks great too! No lock stick or issues. Great little budget knife and user for someone wanting a well made Ti frame lock flipper with great steel that's made in the US without having to spend $800 - $1000.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Sheath, Lock Ease of Use
This knife came to me with Horrble Fit and Finsh. The centering was off and very bad lock stick, so I took it apart and there was rust spots on the blade tang (M390). And the lock bar cut out had jagged metal pieces from machining. I called Bradford and he's response was you can file it down or send it to me, Oh and he was well aware of the problems, he explained to me that there bit broke during machining, So he knew and still shipped them to be sold for $300. How in the world does this come out of your shop? Don't waste your $$$$$$$$
