The James Brand Chapter is a compact and incredibly sleek pocket knife. Made for adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts. People who appreciate the beauty of minimalism. No-nonsense, not too much, not too little.
The sleek silhouette of the Chapter might remind you of a Finnish Puukko. But a hyper-modern folding version. The designers at James worked hard to remove all unnecessary frills.
This new version of the Chapter is enhanced with some technical improvements. Ball bearings are added around the pivot and the titanium framelock is enhanced with a steel lockbar insert. Both improvements are so subtly applied that you don't notice them visually, but immediately feel them when you use the knife.
The blade is made from CPM S35VN. An incredibly popular type of steel that has been used for years on premium pocket knives. Incredibly tough, relatively easy to sharpen and it retains its sharpness well.
Titanium has been used for years as a light-weight, strong and flexible construction material for high-tech purposes. The fact that James made the handle from titanium is therefore an excellent choice. Titanium feels great in hand and is also very sustainable.
The pocket clip is wide and long. A unique design, not often seen in the world of pocket knives. It makes sure that you don't lose the Chapter on the road. At the same time you can also use it as a money clip.
Bright-green accents are a part of The James Brand's style. The fact that the thumb stud, which you use to easily open the knife with one hand, is enhanced with this colour is therefore not that surprising.
Not only the knife looks amazing. The box is also perfect in all its simplicity. A milled wooden box in a tight cardboard sleeve. The knife also comes with a felt storage case. Again with a bright-green James accent.
The James Brand: knives for everyone who lives life to the fullest.
The people behind The James Brand do not come from the pocket knife world. They are skaters, snowboarders, fishermen, barbers, photographers. People who do not only work behind their drawing board, but go out into the world. People who do not wait for their problems to be solved, but take the initiative. They have a different view on what a pocket knife should look like all their own. Never inhibited by thoughts like “that’s just the way it is” they started designing. The result is a stylish and unique pocket knife brand. Made for adventurers and anyone who loves design. For real people.
