The James Brand Unveils A Rugged 10″ S35VN Fixed Blade Outdoor Chef’s Knife

Nov 11, 2020

Category: Gear

We’ve long been singing the praises of The James Brand’s rugged Hell Gap Knife, with the American-made fixed-blade offering a unique balance of durability, utility, and understated elegance. Several years after the launch of the Hell Gap, TJB is now applying its expertise in the fixed-blade sector to deliver a follow-up to the Hell Gap with the all-new Hells Canyon knife.

Like the Hell Gap, The Hells Canyon features a drop-point blade crafted from CPM-S35VN stainless steel, though it is a tad longer at 5.4” (versus the Hell Gap’s 3.8” blade). Spanning 10” in total, the new Hells Canyon was engineered to perform as something of the ultimate off-grid chef’s knife. To achieve this, TJB called on Top Chef Masters-winner, Chris Cosentino, to help design the new knife, resulting in the versatile and highly-durable G-10-handled item seen here. Additionally, the Portland-designed fixed-blade is also sold with a custom Kydex sheath and a paracord lanyard. Available with a black or primer gray handle, The Hells Canyon is available for order now, with pricing set at $295.

Purchase: $295
