This American Made Folder Is The James Brand First Pocket Knife With A Flipper Tab.
The James Brand just released a little flipper called The Wells (named after the projectile points found in east Texas). It’s a compact sheepsfoot folder with an aluminum handle featuring a sub-three-inch Magnacut steel blade and a wire pocket clip.
It’s machined and assembled entirely in the USA, making it The James Brand’s third all-American-made design after The Kline (another Magnacut folder built more for hard use), and the Anzick (a full-sized chef’s knife designed for outdoor cooking). With the release of the Wells, The James Brand seems to be showing a commitment to an American made knife line.
Here are the quick specs:
|Magnacut at 63 HRC
|Steel ball bearings
It’s also The James Brand’s first proper back flipper, which, in combination with the button lock and ball bearing pivot, should give the knife a high fidget factor. And as a small minimalist design with a sheepsfoot blade that’s pretty solidly under a certain legal limit, The Wells has something of an office-friendly look.
