Made for you. And you. And you...
One of the most versatile tools out there, the utility knife takes many forms and serves many jobs. The Palmer is our take on the classic utility knife, made for modern living. It’s designed for easy carry and a great in-hand feel. More of a tool than a traditional pocket knife, it’s that go-to blade that gets used daily for opening boxes, putting a point on a pencil or simply cutting into a hard-to-open bag of chips
Made for everyone.
More of a tool than a traditional knife, the utility knife is a problem solver. Thanks in part to its replaceable blade, a utility knife gets used for stuff that your folding knife doesn't. It’s the blade you reach for to collapse a box, slice through plastic wrap or open stubborn packaging. The latest addition to the TJB family, The Palmer, is a modern take on the classic utility knife, designed for easy carry and deft use. Its slim form sits comfortably in your pocket and makes for a great in-hand feel. It’s compact. It’s colorful. There’s no reason to leave home without it.
Made for precision.
Made for work.
Cut, sharpen, score, etch, whittle, open.
Slim and easy to handle, The Palmer sets a new standard in utility knife convenience. An aluminum body keeps it light, a lanyard gives you carrying options, and a variety of colors keep it fun. It’s sized to sit discreetly in the coin pocket of your jeans with a shape and feel that rests comfortably in your hand. Smooth blade action puts it to use, and our patent-pending mechanism for tool-free blade release makes blade changes a snap. Update your EDC.

When the Palmer arrived, the weight of the box told me I had something very special inside. I am highly impressed with the quality of this knife /tool. Being a surgeon, I am accustomed to surgical, high professional medical equipment and the rigorous standards employed to make sure my equipment meet these high standards. The weight of the Palmer is substantial and you can feel its not a cheap tool. It's well put together, well thought out and made of quality parts through and through.
The details, from the recessed round silver loop holding the string lanyard is gorgeous, The slide mechanism is effortless! This is PERFECTION in your hand!

Received it as a Christmas 🎄 gift last night and I instantly put it to use. Helped all the kids and adults open their presents 🎁 and found myself looking for other things to do with the cutter all night long. Really fun to use. Has weight and heft to it which makes it a standout. The shape is perfect as it’s not too small and not too big. The design ensure there is ample space between how you grip it and the sharp blade. It’s likely going ti replace my knife as an EDC into the office where I wear a suit each day in a corporate environment. Love carrying a knife, but it’s sometimes awkward pulling it out at work just to cut open a 📦. Love the color. It design is very Apple-esk. Sleek and refined. This is a winner.

I open a lot of boxes and cut into too many corrugated/cardboard panels compared to the number of fingers I still have on my hands without jagged scars. Just saying, outside of a stocker, I use more razor and utility blades than anyone I know .. so the fact that I have now bought two (2) more Palmers, as gifts for my vendors, shows how much I appreciate the feel, function and quality of its easy and brilliant design.

Because it’s so flat and thin, it makes precise cutting much easier that anything else out there with this kind of blade. The clever blade release and thoughtful design are not surprising coming from this brand. Bravo. Great job James!!!

So I own a moderately expensive pocket knife, several Swiss Army knives, a utility knife, why would I want this item The Palmer? Simplicity! Here is a product that does the same function but solves a nagging issue - how to easily replace the blade. Using this saves me from the gunk and glue from packages and boxes being put on my nicer knife. I have a utility knife but invariably it’s not handy when I need it. The Palmer solves this as it stays in my pocket. And with the simple flick of the switch at the halfway point, I can reverse or replace the aging blade. Also I see it as a good travel knife - remove the blade for travel and stop at a local store when I arrive to pick up a spare blade. Nothing to have taken from me by the TSA. Overall, it’s a gorgeous item to EDC. Looking forward to it aging (yes it is anodized aluminum) so it will garner nicks and scratches, but that’s ok. It’s a welcome tool to have handy.
