Though relatively new in the grand scheme of things, The James Brand has quickly made a name for themselves in the everyday carry community by crafting exceptional gear with spot-on minimalist styling. And now, their catalog of offerings is a little more versatile with their take on the classic Swiss Army Knife, The Ellis.
With just a cursory glance, it’s clear that this folding pocket tool is a James Brand design. Take a closer look and you’ll see even more evidence, like high-quality materials that include Sandvik 12C27 steel and anodized aluminum. On top of a partially-serrated drop point blade, the Ellis is also equipped with a flathead screwdriver, scraper, bottle opener, and more. And the manual-opened tools all stay securely deployed during use thanks to a sturdy back lock mechanism. Measuring up at 6.1″ in total but weighing only 2.8 ounces, this beautiful and handy EDC multi-tool can be yours in one of three colorways for just $99.
