Whenever you head into the wilderness, you need to make sure you’re prepared. Whether you’re going camping, hiking, or fishing, you want to bring all the essentials with you, including survival gear, but still pack light. And knives are an absolute necessity.
The latest addition to the EDC knife market is Redstone by James Brand, a seriously compact, lightweight knife that’s designed to go anywhere you go, including the wilderness. Small but supposedly mighty, this knife promises to be an ideal companion for outdoor adventures. But is it really? Let’s check it out.
The Redstone Knife Features
- Compact, folding design that’s easy to pack and store anywhere
- The island design allows your finger to rest between the islands for a good grip
- 12C27 stainless steel blade and frame that’s corrosion-resistant
- Partially serrated 2.5-inch drop point blade
- Slide-lock for secure lock-up and one-handed use
- Unique bent-wire clip for an easy carry
- Paracord lanyard so it’s easy to attach it to your day pack
Designed by professional rock-climber, filmmaker and photographer Savannah Cummins, the Redstone features an island design that allows your finger to rest between the islands for a superior grip. And at just 1.8 oz, this compact everyday carry knife won’t weigh you down so it’s indeed great for various outdoor adventures, including of course, rock climbing.
The Redstone comes with a small 2.5-inch drop-point blade that’s partially serrated to help you cut through rough materials. We’re also fans of its Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel construction that makes the blade durable and corrosion-resistant as well as easy to sharpen. Generally speaking, this type of steel is affordable but of good quality.
While very small, this knife is highly practical and can easily take on big jobs. This is thanks to its unique design and quality blade that’s capable of cutting through a variety of materials. Sure, the Redstone may not have the most ergonomic design out there, but it’s easy to deploy once you get used to the design, plus its slide lock is ambidextrous. We also appreciate the bent-wire clip for easy carry.
The James Brand x Huckberry Redstone retails for a reasonable $99. Considering it’s a limited-edition knife, it’s actually a bit of a steal.
