Inspired by one of Gayle Bradley’s popular custom designs, the Junction is a versatile, do-all fixed-blade knife that is ideal for hunters, backpackers, and outdoorsmen on the go. Like many of Bradley’s coveted handmade knives, the Junction’s blade is precision ground from PSF27—an incredibly tough spray-formed tool steel. Spray forming is similar to the particle metallurgy process in that it quickly solidifies the molten steel into small particles so its component alloys cannot “segregate” or settle. This produces steel with an ultra-fine, extremely homogenous grain structure and maximizes the benefits of all its alloy components.
The Junction’s PlainEdge™ blade features a broad profile, a full-flat grind, and a gracefully curved belly. The synergy of these elements creates incredible edge geometry that reduces cutting friction and allows the blade to tackle both delicate tasks and extreme cutting chores with equal ease.
For maximum control and strength, it also features a wide, ergonomic handle and an understated integral guard that helps prevent the user’s hand from sliding forward onto the edge. The knife’s stout full tang is capped by slim, smooth G-10 scales permanently attached with sturdy tubular rivets that reduce weight and allow the knife to be easily lashed to a pole as an improvised survival spear.
The Junction comes complete with a custom-molded Boltaron® sheath and a versatile G-Clip™ attachment that makes it configurable for vertical, horizontal, or diagonally canted carry. The G-Clip can also be attached to either face of the symmetrical sheath, allowing a full range of both belt carry and clip-style inside-the-waistband carry positions.
