EVERY DETAIL CONSIDERED


chapter sketch

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.

Third one

I am embarrassed to say this is my third one. One of the problems with having it with you all the time is that it gets used a lot, and seem to get lost. I take the clip off and keep it in my pocket.

This is an heirloom piece

It seems lately everyone is searching for gear that will last then a lifetime. A piece they carry every day that we pass on to the next generation. This is that piece, the design is beautiful and simple, it’s build quality is second to none and it stands out. I carry mine daily and get asked about it every time I use it. You want this knife, don’t even question it.
