For the Pocket Knife Fan: James Brand Ellis

James Brand has developed a reputation for making highly refined pocket knives and tools at a reasonable price. The Ellis is the brand’s answer to a minimalist, knife-based tool.

At its core is a drop-point, partially serrated blade of Sandvik 12C27 steel. Add a multitool-esque screwdriver/scraper/bottle opener and lanyard bail, and you have a slick everyday-carry pocket knife. It’s quickly become one of our favorite pocket knives.
