Handsome and useful
For the Elko a few days ago and it has come in handy a number of times. Does the job with style for days.
Sweet(est?) little keychain companion
I just got an Elko in natural micarta for my keychain. I like a fairly minimalist approach to EDC, so you won't see me packing a Shaman or anything larger like that. I prefer a sharp knife on the order of a Mini Bugout, or a medium sized knife that sits well and deep in the pocket. The Elko on a keychain can serve well for secondary cutting jobs with minimum extra volume added, and you'll always have it handy as long as you don't lose your keys. My personal stack contains my car and house keys, the Elko and a LynchNW.com key carrier. I like it! A lot! Cheers to James Brand for bringing the Elko. You can get a cheaper knife, but this one smokes the competition at this size/footprint.
Well made EDC for the keychain.
This is my second James Brand knife. I am not a knife guy, what I mean is that I do not collect them or into them that much. I decided I wanted to have a knife well designed and well made knife in my office. With that the Country life was ordered in dark wood with black blade. Beautiful knife. Now I wanted a small EDC knife to own that was small, sharp and quality. The Elko found a home.
Sharp and sturdy for its size and with a minimalistic design that shows quality and care of a well made product that shows why it is little pricier than others out in the market.
Next up down the road is the Carter I think for me. Looking for a locking blade and again the design, care of creating a product can been seen.
Great little knife!
Damascus finish is gorgeous and it does fit well on my keychain. I am knocking off one star though because, as other reviews mention, the blade on this knife was NOT sharp, in fact noticeably dull. For a more expensive knife like this, I should not ever have had to sharpen it myself right after purchase, and have not, in fact, with other brands. But once properly sharpened it works well.
Perfect everyday knife! Great quality!
My father is an avid knife collector. I got him this knife for father's day. He loved it and kept expecting the detail. He was so proud he said this would be his Sunday knife :) Great gift will buy again from this company!! A+++++++++++++++
