DDC-263 The James Brand x DDC "Elko" Folding Knife


Product Description:
This one goes back a good twenty years. When I met my buddy Ryan Coulter in 2002, I instantly knew that this was the kind of guy to start taking notes around. He knew how to make stuff! Snowboard bindings, shoes, sporting goods, bags…all sorts of boss stuff. And free of the pompous industrial design swagger I’ve run into here and there. He was a regular guy! We shared a Midwestern upbringing bond, and yearning for The West. We both had to escape. There’s a cool understanding there we share. Each gig, project or year we make it out here is always good for a high-five. And that goes back to 2002.

Over the years we got to collaborate a bit for Union Binding Company, and then made some Field Notes for The James Brand, and this time? We made a knife together. And for that, I am blown away. I’ll have one of these on my keychain FOREVER.

And hey, this isn’t just about a knife—it’s about the power of design. Coulter designed EVERY single facet of this thing. I’m in awe every time a James Brand product. Respect, buddy. Congratulations on amazing The James Brand, and thank you for making these for the DDC! We love ya, Coulter!
