    I’ve picked up 4 Benchmade folders, 3 Benchmade fixed blade, a Boker automatic, I’ve got two Bradford fixed blades and a new model of bark river knife fixed blade coming also. This isn’t everything but here are a few pics.

    Thank you. Yes sir I’m a Benchmade fan even though I’ve been to much of a tightwad to buy one, unfortunately or fortunately I got involved with a buy/sale/trade group with knifes and I have done several deals and sold some of them, I’ve slowly upgraded with each deal. I have a couple of the knives above sold just waiting on a few parts to repair/upgrade them.

    I got this Bradford in the mail today that I bought off a guy that bought it new, he carried it one day and decided it was just to big for what he wanted to use it for. He bought a smaller fixed blade. These knives online average anywhere from$145 to $185 and up, depending on the place. I bought this one for $85.00. One thing I love about these Bradfords are they are made in the USA they have a lifetime warranty and are razor sharp right out of the box. Pretty decent quality for a mass produced knife.

    I love the Benchmades, but I am too cheap to spring for one. I keep looking at them, maybe one day.
    Never saw the Bradfords before. That is one sweet blade, I really like the shape of it.

    I’ve just accumulated the Benchmade knives this year because of some of the deals I’ve done, the prices have also come down on some of their knives.

    Check out the Bradford Knives, they make several different sizes and models and you can find some bargains if you shop around. Amazon and some of the knife websites will some times have closeout knives. Everyone I’ve handled have been shaving sharp right out of the box and they come with a leather sheath and if you prefer kydex they have those through their website. The blue/black Bradford is about an inch smaller knife than the greenish handled one.

    I had not heard of Bradford, but the picture is impressive. I will definitely check them out.

    Morgan here is the link to Bradford Knifes. Ignore any prices they may have, if you find a particular model you like check amazon, knives ship free or DLT for prices.

    I am interested in what alloy they use. The grain structure has me baffled.

    They were a tool and die machine shop and may still be but I think they are mostly knives now.

    O.K. Mulescj8: Who ripped off who? Isn't that Case knife a Buck 110? Bradfords are really nice.

    The case mako does look a lot like a smaller version of the buck 110 now that you mention it, I’ve really not paid much attention to it. That mako was a gift from my girls when they were little, they are all grown and have kids of their own now.

    Thank you, what makes it even sweeter was at the first of the year they gave me a gift certificate for $100.00 off towards any knife of my choosing. I was completely blown away by their gift. I’m still in awe that they would do that for me. This is one of the knives I’ve had on my radar for awhile.

    The Bark River is a small unusual blade design, the knife is sharp and it maneuvers fairly easily. I think the design may end up being a decent skinning blade although that wasn’t the initial thought for it.

    Wanted to post this link. I follow this You Tube Channel, and I think he does a great job. Nice testimonial on Bradford Knives.
