If you’re looking for a grail-worthy minimalist folding knife to EDC, you might find that your options are actually pretty limited. The team at The James Brand certainly thought so, and they designed The Chapter to offer an ultra-premium minimalist modern gents everyday carry folding knife that sticks to a sleek and clean aesthetic. With minimal moving parts, it’s easy to maintain and care for while offering some of the best performance your money can buy. And since 2014 The Chapter has remained one of the best tools built for hard use and adventure without breaking your aesthetic in the process.

At 2.75" long The Chapter's premium CPM S35VN blade has more than enough length to handle all of your daily cutting and slicing tasks, and the steel composition allows it to keep a hard edge for longer than a standard off-the-shelf knife. It also contrasts well with the slim and sleek 6Al4V titanium handle, which also features a reliable frame lock to hold everything in place even during rough use. The manual right-handed thumb stud deployment is made easier with a cutout in the handle for easy access with one hand, and the ceramic bearings in the pivot of the handle make for a smooth and consistent opening every time. And rounding it all off is the deep carry pocket clip which meshes well with the overall look of the knife, making it a discreet, yet classy, addition to any EDC. Pick one up in its blacked-out iteration at the link below.
