the Hell Gap
Sometimes everyday carry means more than what you can put in your pockets.
Introducing the Hell Gap; our first fixed blade knife. Named after the Hell Gap arrowhead found in Platte County, Wyoming, the Hell Gap is a rugged workhorse, like the land of its namesake. Built around an s35vn steel blade and canvas Micarta scales, it’s a cutting polymath; built to be capable of doing work ranging from digging roots in the backyard to dicing onions for your camp breakfast burrito.
A fantastic camp knife!
The Hell Gap has an excellent grip that fits my hand perfectly. The razor-sharp blade excels at food prep requiring cutting, slicing, and chopping. It's rugged, lightweight, and sized to bring anywhere. The ergonomics and blade steel make this knife a winner. I'm a fan of James Brand Knives, and this fixed blade is a welcome addition to their impressive array of tools.
Just as advertised!
Almost The Perfect Knife
Before I buy at least two more of these as gifts to friends, I want to mention that I would prefer a slightly longer handle and a finger groove before the sharpened blade. I own three James knives and I've cut myself within the first five minutes of handling all of them! How I can possibly keep the same edge on this particular knife is beyond my skills. The sheath is an interesting choice of material and probably works well in wet conditions. Here is New Mexico, I prefer leather. I think this knife is worth every penny: Beautifully made and rugged build.
Not much to say except it is VERY well built, has a very attractive look and feel, cuts like a dream, and an absolute pleasure to use.
