Sometimes, you need a bit more functionality than a pocket-knife alone can offer. That’s why a lot of people turn to a multi-tool – the only problem being, most are so heavy and bulky that they weigh down your pocket, which often makes you understandably reluctant to actually carry the damn thing. Realising this, The James Brand has redesigned their best-selling Ellis pocket multi-tool from the ground up. They’ve added a super-useful pair of scissors and improved the ‘all-things’ scraper/pry bar/screwdriver too, whilst also making the blade mechanism a non-locking slip-joint design, which ensures this little beauty is now legal for UK everyday carry. It has the same partially-serrated Swedish Sandvik 12C27 stainless-steel blade as previously, which is a versatile blade for cutting rope and ripping cardboard as well as general chopping and slicing tasks.
