It’s Friday, so I’ll cut right to the chase (and the egregious pun) — one of The James Brand’s mainstay pocket knives is currently on sale for 20 percent off. It isn’t a massive discount, but still noteworthy given that these knives rarely go on sale. Enter the code SMR20 at checkout to apply the discount.

We’re big fans of The James Brand and its gorgeously-minimal pocket knives. The County is a modern folder that draws inspiration from heritage jackknives, and it’s the only knife in the brand’s collection that can be ordered with a wooden handle (other handle options include titanium and G10 composite).

The County’s 2.5-inch straight-edge blade is Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel, and it’s implemented into the handle as a non-locking slipjoint, so it’s easy-open, easy-close. The knife doesn’t have a pocket clip — there’s a lanyard hole instead — so its profile is left clean and uncluttered. All these details make the County appropriately old-timey with a hint of the contemporary, which combined make it timeless; it’s the type of knife you’d use for years and pass down to a future generation.

If your collection of folders is already brimming, check out the fixed-blade Eggen Knife by Helle. It’s also on sale at Backcountry and shares many of the County’s aesthetic qualities, including a wooden handle made of curly birch. Again, use the code SMR20 at checkout to apply the discount.
