When you think “utility blade,” you probably have a specific one in mind, the typical black or gray, sometimes red options you’ve seen a hundred times at the hardware store. And rightly so, since at the core of it, all a utility blade needs to do is hold the replaceable cutter, secure it during use, and store it when you’re done. But doing the bare minimum isn’t in The James Brand’s playbook. The Palmer is a colorful (and functional) reimagining of the classic utility knife, featuring several upgrades that bridge the gap between a purely utilitarian object and an aesthetic everyday tool worthy of your carry.

Measuring just 3.5 inches closed and 4.1 inches when fully opened, The Palmer stays true to its name by being a comfortable tool in the hand, while also small enough to slip into the coin pocket of your jeans or hang on your pack with the included lanyard. Its handles are made from anodized 6064 aluminum for added durability, with chamfered edges for a great feel when in use. The Palmer is available in six color options: Coral, Cerulean, Canary, Black, OD Green, and Space Grey. Gone are the boring old plain grays and blacks; The Palmer is designed to give any EDC a pop of color.

But the highlight of The Palmer is its innovative proprietary mechanism that allows for easy, tool-free blade changes. And since The Palmer uses standard utility knife blades, you’ll never have to worry about sharpening. Simply turn the blade around, or replace it in seconds for a fresh cut when it gets gunked down by all the packaging tape it cuts through. The easy availability of the knife blade makes it convenient to travel with as well. Just take The Palmer with you without the blade to pass airport security, and pick up replacement blades when you reach your destination.

Whether you’re opening packages or protecting your actual EDC knife from extra tough or abrasive materials, The Palmer’s friendly design, versatility, quick-use convenience, and compact size makes it an excellent choice for those looking for the practicality of a utility knife with the added flair only The James Brand can muster. Pick a color that matches your EDC theme and order yours from the link below.
