Crafting a workhorse.

With the Folsom we focused on designing a knife that would be at home from the city to the backcountry. Fluid arcs and simple forms give ample gripping power while the extra-slim profile won’t bulk up your pocket like other liner-locks. A triangular thumb hole and reversible clip also allow for left or right-handed configuration.

The Folsom - Pure Quality in build and design

My 'The Folsom' knife arrived today and started using it straight away. The build is solid and the design and material are amazing. Will definitely be buying more from The James Brand!

Fantastic product and price

At this price point I have yet to order something that I thought was a better value. Excellent construction, great weight, takes a minutes to get it worked into your own personal feel but after that this is a workhorse!

More fashion than function

I love the look and feel of this knife. Quite possibly the most handsome of my carry knives. Two complaints though;

1. As everyone else has stated, the price is sort of obnoxious for a knife made in china with inferior steel

2. The liner lock is horrendously designed. It is tucked too far into the handle and is really difficult to operate. On occasion I’ll need to use two hands to get a good grip so I can unlock the blade.

If the issues above went away it would be the perfect edc
