James Brand 2019 Chapter Knife

James Brand made a lot of heads turn when they debuted their modern take on the pocket knife and this year it's getting a big upgrade. The minimalist yet functional styling that helped put the brand on the map remains fully intact, but it's what they've done to the hardware that's quite a big deal. The Chapter's blade is now made out of Crucible s35vn blade steel, a benchmark-grade, corrosion-resistant knife material and it also features ceramic bearings and a hidden lockface insert.
