The James Brand Ellis Multi-Tool Knife

Published By

The choice between carrying a pocket knife and a bladed multi-tool is one of the toughest quandaries that everyday carry geeks will face. On the one hand, a pocket knife has plenty of utility to begin with and will keep your gear on the minimal side. But if you switch out to a multi-tool, it might let you carry even less in total while being prepared for more unexpected eventualities.

Thankfully, you don’t really need to choose between the two anymore. With the re-release of The James Brand’s carefully designed Ellis knife, the bridge has been gapped between multi-tools and EDC pocket knives. 

Depending on how you look at it, the Ellis is either a remarkably stripped down multi-tool or a superbly equipped pocket knife, equipped with scissors, a pry bar, and a flat-head screwdriver in addition to its half-serrated blade. That makes it fairly well destined for cult status popularity, so grab one now while they’re still in stock.
