Last year, The James Brand introduced their Elko – an ultra-compact keychain folding blade that took the everyday carry world by storm. And while it certainly didn’t need improving, the brand is back at it again with a new version. Except, this time, it’s made with titanium.
Of course, the Titanium Elko still has all of the features that made it great in the first place – from its Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade, to the 416 stainless steel hardware mated to phosphor bronze washers, to the keyring attachment that doubles as a bottle opener, screwdriver, and pry bar. But it also benefits from the addition of 6AL4V titanium handle scales – which are both harder and lighter than steel. At 4.33″ overall, this minuscule EDC cutting tool may just be the ultimate keychain accessory ever made. And it can be yours for $85.
