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.

A keeper
I use this daily for anything and everything that requires a good knife, from cutting cardboard to pruning back branches in the garden etc. Some reviewers complain about the lack of a front choil, the weight, it being hard to close and so on. The thing is, this knife was designed for hard cutting, NOT stabbing/self defence. This is a working man/woman's tool, not a sit on the couch and flip it toy (get a PM2 if that's what you buy knives for!) The liner lock was designed to be harder to disengage, it wasn't designed to be opened and closed in excess of a 120 times an hour. The steel is tough yet holds it's edge for what seems like forever. As for the looks, oh the looks, its best described as a beast in a tuxedo. I have a PM2 and since getting the GB it hardly sees the light of day. It's going to be a long wait for something better to come along. As for the GB2, it doesn't do it for me. Most of the things I like about the GB have been compromised with the GB2. A deep carry pocket clip would have made the GB perfect, but as it is it's close enough.

Spyderco c134cfp gayle bradley folding knife
The knife has a really good feel blade sharpness is excellent its a little heavier than i anticipated but fits in pocket well. I use the knife as an everyday carry knife for what ever comes up.I can not review how the blade material is to sharpen because im still using the factory edge and its still razor sharp.over all the knife is very nice as an everyday carry knife
