James Brand Takes Aim at Swiss Army Knife with the Ellis

Last year, The James Brand added EDC pocket tools to its modest lineup of mid-range daily carry knives, such as a carabiner with a bottle opener and a keychain pry tool. Today, the company launched another first, its first multi-tool: the Ellis. Staying true to its roots, The James Brand used many design cues from both the Chapter and Elko — […]

Gil-Tek RUK V2: All the Right Changes

Gil-Tek RUK V2: All the Right Changes

I first featured the Gil-Tek RUK (Rapid Utility Knife) back in September of 2018. Operating with a spring bar lock mechanism, the RUK was one of the first EDC utility knives with a truly one-handed deployment system — simply push forward on the blade with downward pressure to deploy and reverse the action to retract.

 The brains at Big Idea Design are back at it again.

The Korcraft Everyday Blade is the world’s smallest folding utility knife

The Korcraft Everyday Blade is the world’s smallest folding utility knife

I’m a recent utility blade convert. They’re super compact and lightweight, low maintenance, and come with very few disadvantages. Plus, you never have to worry about sharpening the blade — when one dulls, toss it and pop in another. Honestly, it makes perfect sense for everyday carry, which is why I’m happy to see more love for utility blades throughout the community as a whole.

The Relic EWC knife lets you choose how you want to carry it

The Relic EWC knife lets you choose how you want to carry it

When it comes to keychain-sized knives, there are normally two ways to carry: toss it on a keyring or let it ride at the bottom of your pocket. Few knives that small come with a pocket clip. A new knife from Relic, however, is different. The Relic EWC knife features an interchangeable, deep carry pocket […]
