Sometimes everyday carry means more than what you can put in your pockets.

Introducing the Hell Gap; our first fixed blade knife. Named after the Hell Gap arrowhead found in Platte County, Wyoming, the Hell Gap is a rugged workhorse, like the land of its namesake. Built around an s35vn steel blade and canvas Micarta or G10 scales, it's a cutting polymath; built to be capable of doing work ranging from digging roots in the backyard to dicing onions for your camp breakfast burrito.

Designed and Made Better.

With a full-bellied Crucible s35vn blade for great blend of edge retention, corrosion resistance and ease of sharpening, the Hell Gap is going to become your go-to adventure knife for years to come. The canvas micarta or G10 scales provide great grip and hand feel in all conditions. Designed to be precise enough to do fine work like carving, but with enough finger clearance for chopping or dicing, the Hell Gap is the TJB ATV; go anywhere, do anything.

Knife was great but that sheath..,

Need a belt clip sheath, the holes didn't work for me but saw a possible solution after I returned.

Beautiful design…too small for my hands

It’s a very elegant, beautiful, well-balanced, and functional knife - it just feels like it was made for a child, or someone with very small hands, as if it’s a 3/4-size.

The Carter, by contrast, has a shorter blade, but more substantial handle, and is more functional for me.

The Hell Gap is so small that I’m worried to use it functionally, lest my hand slip past the heel.

Will James Brand make a larger version?!

Sexy and useful

The title says it all. It will last a long time. The sheath is incredible, versatile. I only wish it would have come with a few suggestions how to lace.

The knife? Used every day on the farm cutting balers twine, opening feed bags, you name it.
