My daughter won a James Brand knife at a snowboard competition awhile back and that is how I found out about TJB. I am really happy with this new Clovis knife. I have several other knives from The James Band and have been happy with all of them. The Clovis is my favorite so far. I have used it as my EDC since I got it a few weeks ago. It is a heavier knife but that is one of the things I like about it. The blade came very sharp out of the box. Speaking of the box, that was pretty cool too. I have to say I care more about the knife than the packaging but the Clovis came in an upgraded box with a little service kit of lube , tightening tool and cloth. The design on the Clovis is in my opinion the best yet. I am also a big fan of TJB Folsom! I work a lot of construction project's and have used a Folsom for my EDC for a few years prior to the Clovis with no issues at all. Love this company!
Simple, Sleek, Quality Feel
Pleased with the knife for the most part, except one main issue. Design team should have milled out a cut-away on the show side of scale...so as to be able to access the thumb stud for much easier deployment. I believe, every folding knife I own has this. I was super surprised after first handling that the James gang did not think about this. Otherwise, a very sweet little blade with a very refined fit and finish and feel!
My everyday carry. Expensive but worth it
This knife begs to be held—and beheld
In the Clovis, The James Brand marries the best of advanced metallurgy, modern design, precision engineering, and skilled craftsmanship. The result is a tool as pleasing to the eye as it is to the hand, and a joy to use. Too beautiful and impressive to leave sitting in a drawer...a tool you’ll want to keep close.
A Fine Blade, Understated, and Sharp
it takes a bit to get used to drawing the knife and not turning it upside-down, but once you get it you start to see the little touches of logic that make a knife something that only comes from The James Brand.
The construction is solid, the pocket clip is unobtrusive, and most importantly the blade is very sharp.
This knife brings a smile to my face every time I use it.
