Iconic clip.


the chapter sketch

Practical, not tactical.

The Chapter is the reason the James Brand exists; the knife that started it all. We wanted a pocketknife that fit our lifestyle, clean and modern yet dependably functional. The Chapter was a design exercise in restraint; we stripped all unnecessary parts away and focused on creating an iconic form and details. It was important for the Chapter to be a clean, minimal design whether open or closed, with a clip that became the hero both near and far.

    Good, but not great.

    The knife is well built, and very solid. I did notice two significant flaws. The positioning of the clip, and the small thumb knob makes it difficult to open when you remove it from your pocket. I was disappointed that the knife I received has an issue with the blade not locking properly when it's fully opened. Often I find it hasn't locked in the open position and it presents a potential danger when using it. Despite these flaws it is a very attractive knife.

    Ordered the chapter knife for my daughters boyfriend, he was graduating the police academy. Had the knife laser engraved with his name and swear in date. Turned out awesome, knife had clean lines and very well built. The pocket clip very sturdy. Came in really nice box, great for a gift.
