Trending: The James Brand Elko

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the trending item for Minimalist Monday comes from The James Brand, who have consistently brought simple, practical, and beautifully designed EDC products to market. The Elko is their take on a multi-purpose keychain knife, offering similar functionality, light weight, and durability as other Swiss alternatives. 

The Elko’s 1.8″ blade sports hardy Carpenter CTS-BD1 steel and a wider blade shape to handle more tasks than a slimmer pen knife. It deploys with an elongated thumb hole/nail nick as a slip joint, making it a viable option for EDCers who can’t carry locking knives. Anodized aluminum scales cut down on weight while also giving you plenty of color options to match your gear or to collect. 

Last but not least, its keyring and lanyard attachment point doubles as a flathead screw driver, scraper, and pry bar to spare your blade for rougher tasks. You can pick up this American-made keychain knife in black on black at the link below.
