It’s Back: The James Brand’s Chapter Knife

Our partnership with Discommon stems from an undeniable synergy between the two like-minded design teams. Discommon is a group that is aimed at the class of designers and customers expecting supreme quality, durability, and timeless luxury, but looking for an innovative approach and unexpected output.

‘The Swell’ caters to designers, architects and adventuring artisans. Paying homage to the shared love of the surf between the 2 design teams, Nick Garfias (also designer of the previously released Discommon straight razor) looked to model the handle after the swell of an incoming ocean wave. The lip divides the intricately machined texture representing the rough inside of a wave and the perfectly calm backside. The overall shape provides ergonomic fit and exceptional grip, and it’s made here in the U.S. of A.
