If you haven’t heard of James Brand knives, you’ve been hiding under a rock. They might just be considered the first mainstream lifestyle knife brand with their clean designs, premium materials, and robust construction. Their hugely successful Carter folding knife dropped in late 2019 and has been going strong ever since. Now, they’ve upsized the Carter from a 2.8-inch blade to 3.3 inches. While that might not seem like a serious upsizing, the XL can manage bigger tasks without going to a cumbersome size. It also keeps the knife to a legal blade length in most states. More good news comes in the way of the unchanged and proven design. Features like the grippy G10 or Micarta handle, deep carry pocket clip, and thumb disc carry over from the Carter, as well as the drop point, straight edge VG-10 stainless steel blade. The weight only climbs 0.3 ounces, so it should still be an everyday carry favorite.
