Product Description

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.

I love that knife which is my favorite production folder since my old C55 Spyderco Starmate which I have retired in profit of that incredible tool.

Gayle Bradley is a Texan knifemaker and BladeSports champion. He's known for creating high performance fixed blade and gentleman folders.
CPM-M4, a amazing american alloy from Crucible, is his steel fo choice for his fixed blade able to cut 19 bottles of water in one slash (world breaking record the 5th of april 2008).
The BladeSports is a discipline where knifemakers create knives to cut successfully different materials (woods, ropes...) in a minimum time and Spyderco is his sponsor. You will find more informations about that subject on the net... It will explain the background behind the C134.

The Spyderco C134 the first collaboration between Gayle and the Spyderco crew. It has the attention to details of a gentleman knife with the incredible cutting power of what you expect from a Bradley tool. As a matter of fact, it has been thought as a beautifully dressed folder destined to cut very hard thing.
The blade is not thick for an hardcore tools, compared to other brand and even other Spyderco. It's only 3mm because CPM M4 steel is such a tough steel you can design a very solid thin blade. Spyderco also heat treated for a very high hardness (HRC65!). You got a very hard thin tough blade with a very high hollow ground and a convexed edge. This is the recipe for the highest performance especially on hard materials like reinforced plastics for example. Since I got this knife, it has never failed me in all the chore I have throwed at it. When I need to cut somethin hard ? I reach for it.

The all screw construction, the full steel thick liners concour to give you a max of confidence in your tool.

I purchased this knife a few months ago, and I've been very pleased. It is a tough, rugged, durable piece of steel. The aesthetics are great. The carbon fiber scales are beautiful. The blade finish is very slick, and the hollow grind further accentuates the sheen. Performance wise, This knife is awesome. The blade is a very thick slab of CPM M4, a VERY hard steel. I usually don't like hollow ground blades, but in this case, where the blade will not need sharpened for a long time, it suits me fine. Being a hollow ground blade, this sucker is sharp... literally RAZOR sharp. I've heard guys say, "oh man, this knife is razor sharp!"... and it's not quite, but this knife was the sharpest knife I've ever handled out of the box... ever. The blade is designed for slicing, skinning, chopping, etc... Not a tactical, but a great edc. The handle has great ergonomics which allow the hand to choke up for detailed work. The liners are solid, which I could have done without. It's a little heavy, but I'm picking at a diamond. Of course the action is smooth as glass, and the lockup is vault like. This is a work knife plain and simple. In my opinion, probably the toughest production work knife available. If you use a knife to make a living, this is a good choice. You won't be disappointed.

I originally found out about this knife on a Bushcraft site, where a guy was saying it was the next best folding thing to a real 4" fixed blade woods knife. About a minute after removing this knife from the box, I started to feel like I had never really owned a decent pocket knife before. I have and have had a number of other Spyderco folders, but even the ones almost as long as this seem quite flimsy next to this.

The blade has a thick spine and a long sweep to the edge, almost like a straight razor. There is a thick steel plate covering the whole handle profile on each side. The thickness makes the liner lock the strongest I've ever seen. There is a carbon fiber wafer on top of each plate, making a very stout handle overall.

I found some of the edges of the plates, carbon fiber wafers, and back of the blade, a little sharp, and filed them all with a tiny metal file until they felt smoother - no real visible change with the naked eye. The only other issue I have with this knife is that it a bit too big and serious to be carried in more urbane situations. Just the sight of it would likely scare a lot of city-dwellers I know, plus it weighs a little over 5 ounces.

I'll be honest....

When I first saw this knife, I thought the blade shape was super ugly and being made in Taiwan was a major downside for me. Then I started to read all the reviews about it and the CMP-M4 steel. I finally bought from amazon, shipped the very next day.

When I received the knife, I was very impressed. After USING this knife, I was baffeled! The blade steel is almost unbeleavable and stays shaving sharp even after I carved some very hard wood as a test. It opens super smooth, had a heavy "click" when the lock engages, and has kicked my large Sebenza 21 out of my pocket for a while now.

Some might complain about the lock being hard to disengage. This wasnt the case for me, but if you
Have large gorilla hands, I could see where this could be a problem. The ONLY thing I would change is how shape the inside of the spyderhole is. If I try to use my thumb to flick it open (with no wrist action) it cuts into my nail. It's not that big of problem that I've needed to fix it with some sandpaper, but just a heads up.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this knife to others looking for a heavy duty, hard use folder.
