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 a 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 and Sam 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!

The Fine Print on International Orders:
Please read this, international customers: If you order other items there may be additional shipping required. Order the knife using this link, add your other items to the cart and we’ll reach out to the email from your PayPal account about the extra shipping charges if necessary. Make sure your PayPal email is up to date, as well as your address. If you haven’t heard from us, please check your “SPAM” and “Junk” e-mail folders.

International orders can be a bit tricky. Once the package leaves the states, we can track it, but lose the ability to interface with international post offices. It’s just out of our hands at that point. In almost all cases, they get held up in customs, and might require extra funds to release it. Or are being held at your local post office. We can’t be held responsible for lost packages, custom charges or tracking things down, so please contact your local post office to check to see if packages are being held.
