Solid in the hand. Sharp to the eye.
Slightly longer and weightier than the Chapter, the Clovis feels solid in the hand, but the ease of the ceramic ball bearing button release enables the blade extension to be nearly effortless. The tip-up carry style clip is perfect for quick access right out of the pocket. The years of R&D certainly paid off. And it is made in the USA. You simply can't go wrong. Another 'must own' from The James Brand.
This has quickly become one of my regular carries. I love everything about the knife BUT I did need to make some adjustments. There was a decent amount of play in the blade right of the box. After tinkering with the screw, the screw was constantly backing out. I threw some locktight on it after I made my desired action and now it's perfect.
The best pocket knife ever!
First a couple of notes: 1) I have no association with the James Brand or any of its competitors and 2) I hardly ever give ratings or reviews (even confidentially) of products and or services that I purchase. That being said, I recently got the titanium version of The Clovis and it is absolutely the best knife I have ever had in my hands! The blade is so sharp and solid that not only can you feel a difference when cutting you can HEAR the difference. I use it to open envelopes and it has a totally unique sound to it. Next, the clip is perfect. It hooks on to my jean pocket and does not accidentally come off when I reach for my phone. I also love that the top of the hook has a nice angle on it so it does not get snagged on things. The action is perfect and it easily opens and closes and there is virtually no play at the pivot. Clearly the ceramic bearings are way better than anything that I have used before. Lastly the James Brand team got the overall design perfect in my opinion. It feels amazing in your hand and balances perfectly. I was a little surprised that it feels a bit heavy but I think this is a good thing as overall it just feels solid. I finally found a perfect knife that is Made In The USA! This is definitely of heirloom quality and will without a doubt will last for a lifetime and more. The only drawback that I see is that I wish the little green thumb bolt on the blade was red or blue for this USA product. Get one!!!!
