    A Christmas present to me...:kov:

    The Bradford Guardian 4.5 CPM 3V Matte Black 3D Micarta Scales
    IMG_20181228_163505.jpg

    Here it is compared to the original Guardian 4 N690 with Camo 3D Micarta Scales.
    IMG_20181228_164249.jpg

    And compared to the Survive! Knives GSO 4.1 (original spec) CPM 3V with Natural Micarta Scales.
    IMG_20181228_163553.jpg

    After owning a few knives with a forward choil like the original Guardian 4, I have decided I really dont like them. In outdoor use I just don't like having my hand that close to the blade edge. (Murphy's Law is a real thing!) That's why I am really liking the new 4.5. And the ergonomics of the handle are awesome! It locks into your hand it seems.

    It is sexy! I will be making a very short video about it soon. I have a habit of convexing my blades. It's a thing. This knife is VERY much my sort of blade! I will give it my treatment, and post yet again! Love this knife!

    Uneducated in real knifes, know the names, but that's it. Looking for a utility knife for work and play. Like the size and shape of the Spyderco Native Salt series, I'm a plumber by trade, and deal with water and wet things here in Florida. I'll need to sharpen this knife, obviously, looking at the plain blade option, regular wet stone action? Be nice, I don't know. Looking for any recommendations for some obvious knife enthusiasts, what would you suggest? Thanks in advance.

    Can’t go wrong with Spyderco. They make some great knives. As for sharpening, are you good at using a wet stone? If not, or if you just want to make your life a lot easier, check out the Spyderco Sharpmaker. I am terrible at sharpening knives, and this thing makes it a breeze. Worth every penny in my opinion.

    I think the Benchmade Infidel is the coolest knife I own, but I think it's too nice to use as a everyday knife...just sits in a drawer. The cheap OTF Lightning has been such a great knife, I bought another one when they came out with a double edge one.

    I've been wanting one of these most bad, but I know I'd never use it either, plus I don't have a good track record with side opening auto knives. It really sucks to reach into your pocket and slice a finger to the bone cause the damn blade came open. But damn this knife looks CooL!
