Description
 
Gayle Bradleys experiences a custom knife maker and competitive cutting champion give him an exceptional insight into high-performance knife design an insight that is directly reflected in his first fixed-blade collaboration with Spyderco, the Bradley Bowie. The Bradley Bowies blade is precision ground from PSF27 an incredibly tough spray-formed tool steel. Like the particle metallurgy process, spray forming rapidly solidifies molten steel into small particles so its component alloys cannot segregate or settle. This creates an ultra-fine, extremely homogenous grain structure that is ideal for knife blades. PSF27s alloy composition includes molybdenum, vanadium and a generous 1.55% carbon, but because its chromium content is 12% just below the official threshold for stainless steel care should be taken to maintain it properly. The full-flat-ground blade has a pronounced belly for precise cutting control and a long straight swedge (unsharpened bevel) that helps defines its Bowie character. It is complemented by full-tang handle construction and a prominent integral lower guard to protect the users hand. The handles gracefully contoured G-10 scales are 3-D machined and polished to an attractive finish that still ensures a secure grip during use. They are secured to the tang with stout tubular rivets that help reduce weight, allow easy attachment of a lanyard, and in a survival situation, allow the knife to be lashed to a pole to create an improvised spear. A unique blend of expert design and state-of-the-art metallurgy, the Bradley Bowie comes complete with a custom-molded Boltaron sheath with a versatile G-Clip attachment.
