This Pocket Knife Belongs In Your EDC
The James Brand

When it comes to your everyday carry, a premium pocket knife should be its foundation. You never know what your day may throw at you, and a versatile, sturdy knife makes daily life a whole lot easier. The James Brand is known for creating everyday carry knives, pens and tools that are exceptionally well designed. And, as one of its most popular models, The Carter expertly balances high-end components with an approachable price. The knife features an ambidextrous design (so you can use it in either your left or right hand interchangeably) and makes use of a slide-lock mechanism for secure lock-up and one-handed use. Crafted with premium materials, The Carter sports a Japanese VG-10 stainless steel blade and handle clad in either Micarta or G10. Its pocket clip thoughtfully positions the knife low in your pocket and comes with an included loop for a lanyard if that's more your style. In other words, this knife is incredibly functional, but also looks and feels great in your hand.
