The Guardian


A T.Kell twist on the Wharncliffe blade with some Reverse Tanto thrown in. The Wharncliffe is often thought of as a go-to CQB blade with the Reverse Tanto being a close second. So why not make the ultimate CQB blade by combining the two and putting them on our famed Raider handle platform! The Guardian has a dead flat typical edge, We added reverse tanto style reverse edges and this thing turned out to be nothing but nasty. Keeping with the CQB blade theme it has a very steep 30 degree grind allowing the Guardian creates deep and wide cuts while maintaining a blade thickness to withstand it all. Made from high carbon steel heat treated to 57 HRC using our detailed heat treatment process. Made from .165 thick steel there's nothing you can throw at the Guardian that it cant handle. Made on our famous EDC handle platform it disappears along your belt line and has a secure grip that locks you to the knife in forward or reverse grip. Plated in the most durable blade coating on earth, our exclusive Nickle Boron T1C finish to provide a nearly indestructible blade coating that is so low in friction it flies thru cuts while completely protecting your blade from corrosion. The guardian is built for the same battle tough environments that all T.Kell blades have become known for. Perfected balance points, comfort of grip and EDC concealability make the Guardian a perfect backup or primary CQB item. You can count on the Guardian and you can count on T.Kell Knives to build you a blade that is unequalled in quality, durability, hand feel, and function. When your hand meets a T.Kell knife you'll instantly understand why we have become known for our blades that are so comfortable and balanced that they move with you.

As with all T.Kell Knives the Guardian will hold up and perform beyond any other knife you have ever used. Each knife is Marine Corps veteran designed, handmade, and tested to ensure it is exactly what you expect a blade to be. Backed up by our 'Life of the Knife' no questions asked warranty.
