Spyderco C134CFP Gayle Bradley Folding Knife 3-7/16" CPM-M4 Blade, Carbon Fiber Handles
SP134CFP: Gayle Bradley
This is a very hefty, well designed folding knife. The liners are thick on both sides of the handle. The blade material is top notch CPM-M4 carbon steel - not stainless. This is a tool steel that has over 6 times the wear resistance of D-2 steel at the same hardness.
Here is Spyderco's information:
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 our 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 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.
