With the Carter you get both brawn and beauty.
Featuring a slide-lock mechanism, a corrosion-resistant VG-10 stainless steel blade, fully-profiled G10 or Micarta scales and a deep-carry, reversible pocket clip, the Carter is the most advanced knife we've ever made. It's slim and lightweight, but fully capable in any environment. It's also fully ambidextrous, and the pocket clip can easily be removed and replaced with a lanyard insert. The thumb disc design means that the Carter is easy to use with one hand, so it's at the ready in all situations. The Carter is going to immediately earn it's spot in your EDC rotation.
All day, every day.
We make knives and tools for people who live adventurously - for people like us. For those who aren’t content consuming other people’s stories, and who don’t wait around for other people to fix things. We're with you, from the pocket to the hand, and back again.
Form and Function.
The Carter features slide-lock technology, a first for us here at TJB. The slide-lock is secure, easy to understand and ambidextrous. It’s designed for use with one hand, and has been a staple mechanism of everyday carry knives for a long time.
every detail considered
Designed & Made Better
The Japanese-made VG-10 stainless steel blade has great edge-retention and corrosion resistance. VG-10 was designed to handle the abuse of the culinary world, but because of its amazing characteristics, it’s found a home in the world of everyday carry. The Carter is available with G10 scales or in natural Micarta; both are fully sculpted and feel amazing in hand. The opening style uses a symmetrical thumb-disc on top of the blade, making for easy, affirmative one-handed opening. The deep-carry pocket clip is our deepest ever. It’s easily reversible (using a Torx T6, not included). If a pocket clip isn’t your thing you can replace the clip with the included lanyard insert.
The Carter is available in regular and XL sizes, so it will fit hands and jobs of all sizes. If you are looking for something that is discreet and rides easily in any pocket all day, stick with the standard Carter. If you've got bigger hands, and need a full-size knife for hardcore work day in and day out, the Carter XL is for you.

This may be the best Every Day Carry Knife that I have ever owned. It is ready to go right out of the box. Very sharp and professionally smooth action.
Look forward to putting it to work every day and maintaining it properly!

I’ve owned a lot of knives and this one has quickly become one of my favorites.
It’s minimalist design looks great, and is comfortable when using. The locking mechanism is solid which I appreciate since that was where my last knife broke.
I never heard of the James Brand until a few months ago. I almost did an impulse buy on the aesthetics alone. I wish I had, then I would of had it months ago. But I’m glad I did my research and made this purchase. I’ll be buying more products in the future.

I received my Carter a few years ago as a gift.
I like it so much, I bought three more for my adult children.
These seem like knives that may last forever so I had them engraved.

Wife bought me this for Father’s Day. I believe it is the 5th or 6th James knife that I have. They are high quality and great EDCs. Love the looks of this one. It is the XL size. Which I was super excited about. I will say, I like the smaller one though because it’s easier in my smaller hands to 1 hand open and close and “play” with. Can’t say anything bad about quality or customer service. They’re amazing. Wish I had enough $$ to buy alllllll their knives.
