The James Brand Hells Canyon Chef’s Knife

Published By

Yes, food tastes better when it’s cooked and consumed outside, over fire, under the open sky. But recreating the practical convenience of a modern kitchen at a campsite ain’t easy. Which is the exact reason The James Brand created their latest knife — to make cooking outdoors feel more like cooking at home. As only the second fixed blade knife from the minimalist knife-making pros, the Hells Canyon Chef’s knife combines portability with professional kitchen mojo, and looks pretty slick in the process.

The generous five-inch blade has a G10-scaled handle with an overall length of ten inches. In this case, portable doesn’t mean tiny. It comes with a molded Kydex sheath and an included lanyard for safer transport and carry. Pack it with your get-gone gear and take it someplace far off and wild to cook up the best meal you’ve had in ages. Of course, it’s so well-designed, you’ll be using this one in the backyard — and it may just find its way into the kitchen as well.
