You may have missed it in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday chaos, but one of our favorite knife makers released perhaps its finest blade ever. The James Brand’s new Clovis, featuring a Crucible S35VN stainless steel blade, a button-lock mechanism, 3D profiled 6AL4V titanium scales and ceramic ball bearings, is the product of more than four years of listening to customer feedback before delivering an epic response. No wonder, then, that the Clovis sold out in a matter of hours.
Don’t fret, however. According to a recent post on The James Brand’s Instagram feed, this limited-edition knife is not yet done with its run. The crew is currently making more of a total batch of 300 and plans to release the next round in time for the holidays. We’ll keep you posted and, in the meantime, share a few more details on this instant heirloom.
The Clovis weighs 3.6 ounces and comes in two varieties, a $399 titanium-plus-stainless steel edition and a $425 all-black model. The drop-point blade measures 2.9 inches and the handle measures four inches, for a total length of 6.9 inches. Designed in Portland, Oregon and made in Meridian, Idaho, the Clovis is a tribute to quality craftsmanship and functional minimalism.
Here are a couple more images — including a peek at the black-on-black version — to tide you over till the next round of knives arrives.
