The Exponentially Better Integral.
At The James Brand we’re dedicated to making the very best knives and tools and to always pushing the boundaries of what is possible. In that spirit, we are proud to introduce the Barnes. The Barnes is a titanium framelock, and it's our very first integral design. The Barnes is CNC-machined from one solid billet of 6AL4V titanium, which means fewer parts, less maintenance and the ability to do things with the form that you cannot do in standard knife construction. The Barnes is built around a 3.5 inch Bohler M390 stainless steel blade; this is our first knife with M390 which is widely regarded as the singular best blade steel. The blade runs on a stainless steel pivot and ceramic bearings, and the clip is CNC-machined titanium as well. The Barnes comes with our very first coin design, as it's bad luck to give a knife as a gift without exchanging the coin, and comes with a paracord lanyard. It's the finest and most technically advanced knife we've ever made.
I’ve been using the chapter knife for years, and I love it. There are times when I want a larger blade, and the Barnes delivers and then some. The Chapter is still great and it is more compact, but the Barnes design is a whole different level. Very comfortable to hold, and the handle has a nice grip to it. Love the black/black edition!
The Barnes Knife
This knife is amazing! Superior quality and craftsmanship!
A very exceptional presentation piece that ascribes to the design standards of The James Brand.
Extremely well made with high quality materials and components. Precision opening and closing. Has a nice weight and feels great in the hand. A little pricey but you’re getting the best in class!
Really sweet integral pocket knife
Easy in and out of pocket, easy to sharpen, a pleasure to have at hand.
