Made to tackle the elements.
Share the stoke.
A shared love for good design, outdoor adventure and a home base in the state of Oregon fueled the desire for us to work together with Salomon on the Super 8 Snowboard and Chapter collaboration. What began as preliminary notes from a call to meld shared values and likeminded interest soon transformed into a limited edition version of the knife that started it all.
With the James x Salomon Chapter, simple significance meets lightweight function.
The aluminum frame-lock construction is simple yet sturdy and lightweight, with minimal moving parts and maintenance. The semi-stainless steel blade holds an edge, resists corrosion and as is easy to care for. The straight blade and low profile make for a knife perfect to carry for a day on the slopes, and it will last for a lifetime.
Practical, not tactical.
The Chapter is the reason the James Brand exists; the knife that started it all. We wanted a pocketknife that fit our lifestyle, clean and modern yet dependably functional. The Chapter was a design exercise in restraint; we stripped all unnecessary parts away and focused on creating an iconic form and details. It was important for the Chapter to be a clean, minimal design whether open or closed, with a clip that became the hero both near and far.
