    I have a little money to spend and want a new knife (despite promising myself that I wouldn't buy another). Any suggestions?

    About €250. Looking for (yet another) fixed blade, small or big, or a nice folder. Not very specific, I know.

    Not sure if you have anything from Bradford Knives, but I would suggest looking at what they have to offer. I have a couple of Guardian 3’s. Excellent knives and a good company to deal with.

    Well, I have been looking at a couple of their knives. They do have some good looking pieces. I can't make up my mind. That's why I'm asking for some input. Thanks. That is +1 for Bradford.

    Here you go......

    The drop point is an early production in CPM-3V. The sheepsfoot is in M390. Both blades are stonewashed and scales are textured G3 (black/green camo):

    With their sheaths:

    Well I am sorry but I can not participate in this thread.
    I do not want another knife and am powerless to want them too.
    Good Luck

    I have one that's on my flip-list. I was seduced by the good looks, but that style of knife really doesn't fit any of my needs. Approaching four years in a drawer, so it really should be looking for a more loving home. Not sure if shipping outside of Norway is economically feasible, but if there is interest I can look up the rates.
    Couldn't find a pic on the fly, but specs are:
    Guardian 3, 3D camo micarta, Sabre ground, Nimbus finish, Black oxide handle fasteners, M390, Leather sheath

    I like the Guardian 3 but I like the Guardian 3.5 a whole lot more. The whole line is excellent, especially for the price.

    If I was watching this thread,which I am not I would say that was too little too late probably.

    Bark River. A nice fixed blade from them is a pleasant way to burn through some cash

    Sorry gents. I listened to my wife. Instead I got an Armatus sheath for my Garberg, a new Naniwa stone, a De Buyer carbon pan and some paracord. The rest is beer money.

    I highly recommend Bark River. I have the Gunny Sidekick in CPM-M4. Beautifully crafted and razor sharp. I put it on my Wicked Edge for a mirror polish and it has held up well with the work it has done in the field. The customer service is amazing as well - I wanted a nice left handed sheath and they hunted around and supplied a REALLY nice sheath for me and shipped - no charge - not even shipping. Very friendly and helpful.
