A daily workhorse.
The Ellis uses a lockback design so that you can do real work with a tool that locks; no more busted knuckles turning screws. Other features include a partially-serrated drop point blade, a combination bottle-opener and screwdriver, our "All Things"® scraper and pry and a bail loop for attaching to your keys, carabiner or backpack.
Great knife, right size
Not too big, not tiny. This is a great, sharp and useful tool that looks and feels great. It doesn’t look like you going to skin a moose after work, either!
Sharp and useful
Great every day knife. Enough utility so you don’t need anything else but thin enough to keep from being weighted down
The price is always concerning, but the quality comes through.
Every time I consider a James product I hesitate because of the price. When I receive the item I am always impressed with the quality to a point I am now hesitant to use it in fear of damaging my new fine item.
Pros: quality, warranty, customer service
Cons: the only one is price, but you get what you pay for.
I gifted this knife to my Uncle for his 80th birthday. He is a fine craftsman who will be losing his workshop (50-yrs in the making) due to his age and the sale of his home. I wanted to get him a "smaller" tool that he could EDC for all his future, smaller, projects.
Great keychain knife
Knife is sharp and design is sleek, big fan!
