Description: Gayle Bradley is a knifemaker from Texas who has been making knives since 1988. This is his first production collaboration knife and features CPM M-4 steel, which is similar to standard M-4 but made using Crucible Power Metallurgy technology resulting in a finer grained steel and sharper edges. This knife also benefits from the reduced cost of shipping American steel to Taiwan for Production.

Generation 2: The folder has been refined through Spyderco’s CQI process to produce a thinner, lighter version that also gives better grip and control. This new version drops 1oz in weight.
