The James Brand Elko Keychain Knife

Dec 6, 2017

Category: Gear

With their ever-growing catalogue of impressive everyday carry blades, The James Brand has honed in on a superb mixture of style and substance. And now they’ve got another drool-worthy option – and their smallest offering yet – The Elko Keychain Knife.

Measuring up at only 4.33 inches in total (only 2.6 inches when closed), this slipjoint knife boasts a stout blade made from reliable Sandvik steel. It’s mated to a handle crafted from aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum – in your choice of black, green, or silver. If that were all there was to this knife, it might honestly be enough. But the brand upped the ante on this one by also including a keychain attachment piece that does double duty as a combination bottle opener/prybar/screwdriver (or whatever else you can think up) – making this one of the most utilitarian keychain knives we’ve ever seen. And best of all, it’s also their most affordable blade – costing only $60 a piece.

Purchase: $60
