The James Brand is known for creating everyday carry knives and tools that are exceptionally well designed. We have been singing The James Brand praises for a while, but if you are just tuning in, they were founded by an eclectic group of designers who were looking to create everyday essentials that could seamlessly move from the pocket to the hand and back again, multiple times a day. Made from the best materials and with a focus on minimalist design, the goods from The James Brand would certainly make a smart choice for a Father’s Day gift — or you may just want to keep it for yourself.
The first piece of kit made by The James Brand, this is the knife that started it all. Perfect at home, the office or in the field, the Chapter features a 3 inch s35vn stainless-steel blade in a titanium framelock design. Equipped with a deep-carry clip, it’s the perfect everyday carry knife for any task.
The Mehlville is made the hard way: it’s CNC milled from a solid block of aluminum. It’s not your average carabiner, with two compartments to keep your keys exceptionally safe. With three finishes to choose from it’s the perfect addition for the guy who already has an EDC knife on lock.
The street-savvy Benton is made with a solid 304 stainless steel barrel which means you can put it through its paces without breaking the cartridge. Speaking of cartridges, the Benton uses a Schmidt 900 M refill, letting you write smoothly for (literally) miles. The Benton features both a pocket clip and a lanyard, so you can decide whether to wear it on your hip or inside your pocket.
If a pocket knife with a clip isn’t for you, The Ellis is your best bet. The James Brand’s first multi-bladed tool is far from cluttered, packing in a 2.6-inch blade, flathead screwdriver, bottle opener and a scraper and prybar all while staying slim inside your pocket.
