The James Brand’s Ellis is simple: it has a partially serrated, clip-point blade and a bottle opener/screwdriver/scraper. Both of these implements use a simple lockback construction to stay open during use. They’re also made of Sandvik 12C27 steel, which is a well-rounded material that has excellent edge retention, durability and corrosion resistance (it’s commonly used for ice skate blades). All that is to say that you can put the Ellis through the wringer daily and not worry about how it’s holding up.
That, and its simple, less-than-a-multi-tool, more-than-a-pocket-knife design make it one of our favorite knives available. It’s affordable at its regular price of $99, but right now it’s a steal for 50 percent off at the Gear Patrol Store when you use the code at checkout.
