"We make knives and tools for people who are adventurous - for people like us."

The genesis

The James brand was founded in Portland, Oregon in 2012 by a group of designers and adventurers who were looking for something better. Based on the adage that if you can't find what you want, you might have to make it yourself, we decided to put pen to paper and design something new: products crafted with premium materials, minimalist aesthetics and clear attention to detail. We make knives and tools that better reflect our values ​​and our lives. The James brand is synonymous with everyday modernity and minimalism.

The knife you carry says something about you. You wear it to solve problems in the present.

Modern & minimal. We believe that less is more.

We believe that less is more. We are a design driven brand that always strives to solve real problems for our customers. We are minimalists; we always seek to remove the fat and reach for the truth. Our use cases are real, not imagined; we know the only knife you can use is the one you have with you when you need it. This is our goal. All day, every day.
