The James Brand Hell Gap

The James Brand Hell Gap

When you think of a minimalist EDC knife, it's likely you don't have a fixed blade in mind. But when you think of it, a fixed blade is actually the height of minimalist design when it comes to knives: there's no complication involved in folding the blade up and getting it ready to go when you need it. You can simply unsheathe the knife, get to work, and put it right back away while you go about your business. The James Brand has taken that simple formula and mixed it with the minimalist design language that they've become known for in making their brand new Hell Gap knife. The premium materials and made-in-USA construction make it a top-notch, reliable tool, and the smart looks of the design give it an attractive aesthetic and a low profile. Whether you take this knife outdoors to its namesake, the Hell Gap archaeological site in Wyoming, or carry it on your belt as a daily driver, it's a compelling choice for a hard-working EDC.

The blade on the Hell Gap is the star of the show here, with a no-frills design and the performance you'd expect from a knife made of premium materials. Other knives boast about the superior strength and hardness of Crucible S35VN stainless steel, but there are still compromises to be made when it's used on a folding knife. None of that applies to the Hell Gap, which provides you a potent 3.8” saber-ground S35VN edge on a full-tang, fixed blade knife that has no moving parts to fail or collapse on you, even during the roughest of use. The canvas micarta handles will also stand up to wear and tear from use both indoors and outdoors, while the grippy nature of the material offers solid control to make precise cuts. And unlike other fixed blade knife designs that skew towards something out of high fantasy or science fiction, the Hell Gap takes a less-is-more approach with a simple and effective drop point shape. There's a distinct lack of huge branding and tactical cues like aggressive serrations, resulting in a utilitarian look with performance that speaks for itself.

Despite its big performance, the Hell Gap remains relatively small enough for EDC. At 7.8” overall, it's the right size to carry on your belt, in a pocket, or with your gear. To accomplish that, the Hell Gap comes with its own fitted kydex sheath. There's also a lanyard hole at the pommel of the handle for carry that way if you prefer. This makes it easy to find and retrieve if you leave it in the glove compartment of your truck or pack it in a gear bag for a hike, for example.

With the Hell Gap in hand, you have a knife that you can count on when the stakes are highest and you can't trust a folding knife. The James Brand stands by their made in the USA knife with a limited lifetime warranty. Learn more about the James Brand's newest knife, available now at the link below.

EverydayCarry.com x Orbitkey Nylon Key Organizer

EDC isn't solely about what we carry—how we carry it all is just as important. Take your keys for example. They're something you wouldn't leave the house without, but they come with their own set of problems: they're clunky, noisy, and messy compared to the rest of your carry. That's why we're huge fans of Orbitkey and how their key organizers solve a problem almost all EDCers have in a simple, elegant, and design-centric way—like all great EDC gear should. We're so excited to announce our take on the Orbitkey Key Organizer with this limited edition collaboration, designed with all of you EDCers in mind. Fitted with a mix of 1050D Ballistic and 500D Cordura nylon in a one-of-a-kind, monochrome digital camouflage print, it's dialed with the right materials, look, and feel to be a worthy addition to your everyday carry.
