Our daily workhorse, reimagined.

We've redesigned the Ellis from the ground up, based on feedback from you, our customers. First off, we've added our very first scissors, which makes the Ellis supremely versatile. If you can't cut it with the Ellis's knife blade, you can almost assuredly cut it with scissors. We have also updated the construction of the Ellis into a slip-joint design to make it easier to use. The new Ellis also features a new deep-carry wire clip as well as our All-Things scraper, flat-head screwdriver and pry tool. The Ellis is built around a partially-serrated Swedish Sandvik 12C27 stainless-steel blade and is available in three different scale options. It will immediately become your daily multi-tool of choice.

EXPANDING THE UTILITY FAMILY


Minimal Form, Maximum Utility.

Born from the same lineage as the Elko, The Ellis was designed to be the in-pocket, multi-function knife that you’ll be reaching for multiple times a day. We asked ourselves “What things do you really need from a knife like this?”. We made sure that the Ellis had all of those functions, and then we ditched the rest. With a partially serrated blade, scissors, pry bar, and bent wire clip you won’t know how you ever got along without it.

Well made and just what I was looking for.

I used to carry a small swiss knife because of the scissors. This knife has a much better scissors and people always ask if I have my scissors handy

Form and function

Rarely have a need to open a can or even a bottle, but often have to open store packaging, remove tags, scrape off a sticker. All the tools I need plus a pocket clip. This combined with high aesthetics in a slim build makes this an easy every day carry.

Only change I would like is reversing the scales so the tip up carry rides on the seam of my pocket and I can get the scraper at a lower angle. Even so, this is a great knife and purchase.

Impressive

This is my first purchase from The James Brand. The Ellis is simple, well-built, very sharp, feels good in the hand. The blade opens and closes with confidence. Haven't needed to use the scissors yet. I think The Ellis fulfills its design objective. Also, the packaging is quite impressive. This will not be my last purchase from The James Brand.

Good size

It’s bigger than I expected with the blade out. I do like the serration but…. I wish there was a blade lock somehow - also I need to reconfigure for left handed use. Clip is in my way and the blade is on wrong side for a left handed person. It for sure is a two handed use knife . I have used the built in “screwdriver” as a bottle opener - not the best use since that part has a taper
