All day, every day.

Form and Function.

The Carter features slide-lock technology, a first for us here at TJB. The slide-lock is secure, easy to understand and ambidextrous. It’s designed for use with one hand, and has been a staple mechanism of everyday carry knives for a long time.

Designed & Made Better

The Japanese-made VG-10 stainless steel blade has great edge-retention and corrosion resistance. VG-10 was designed to handle the abuse of the culinary world, but because of its amazing characteristics, it’s found a home in the world of everyday carry. The Carter is available with G10 scales or in natural Micarta; both are fully sculpted and feel amazing in hand. The opening style uses a symmetrical thumb-disc on top of the blade, making for easy, affirmative one-handed opening. The deep-carry pocket clip is our deepest ever. It’s easily reversible (using a Torx T6, not included). If a pocket clip isn’t your thing you can replace the clip with the included lanyard insert.

The Carter is available in regular and XL sizes, so it will fit hands and jobs of all sizes. If you are looking for something that is discreet and rides easily in any pocket all day, stick with the standard Carter. If you've got bigger hands, and need a full-size knife for hardcore work day in and day out, the Carter XL is for you.

Outstanding knife

I’ve carried pocket knives for as long as I can remember. For years I cared inexpensive, no frills knives. The action was just ok, lower grade steel that didn’t hold a great edge. I now have a Benchmade and a couple other knives that are a step up from what I’ve always carried. This knife puts them all to shame ( sorry Benchmade) ! The action, ergonomics and edge this knife keeps are “outstanding “! Not to mention it’s good looking! Highly recommend this knife. It will not be my last James knife.
