The Ellis makes for a great addition to your EDC kit.

I’m glad we live in a world with boundless cutlery options and some pretty amazing designs, from out-the-front autos to massive tactical frame locks. But not everyone needs something that exotic for day-to-day use, especially if you’re an urban or suburban dweller who spends most of his time on the pavement and in areas where you aren’t likely to get mugged.

For many folks, a pocketknife simply acts as a handy tool for cutting the mundane stuf you run across in your daily travels, or maybe ixing some stuf here and there if it has some extra features on it. If it looks good while doing that, well then, that’s a bonus. If that’s the kind of tool you need, then you might just want to take a look at the James Brand Ellis.

The James Brand and the Ellis

At first glance, you might liken the Ellis to a Swiss Army Knife, and there are some similarities, but there is also a lot that’s different. I’ll dig into that in a minute, but let’s talk about the James Brand first. It may not be a name you’ve seen yet, depending on what knife circles you travel in, but it’s one that I’m starting to see more in some of the online knife shops and trendy EDC shops. Don’t let “trendy” fool you — the Ellis is not just eye candy, it’s a functional tool.
