The James Brand Expands Communication Category

Best known for its pocket knives and tools, The James Brand – makers of modern, minimal, everyday carry products – is excited to announce the expansion of its Communications category offering new travel and lifestyle products to support the everyday & exceptional life experiences.

Since the launch of the Benton pen in 2017, The James Brand has long been committed to making products that support daily living. From sketching designs, to journaling after an epic adventure, to filing out travel forms, the people of James believe communication is connection: to people, to places, and to experiences. Doubling down on this ethos, the expansion of the Communications collection includes two new signature products; The Gatecliff notebook sleeve and The Burwell click pen, and the redesigned launch of the best-selling Stilwell compact pen.

The Gatecliff is the first major softgoods product for the brand, and is constructed of fully welded water-resistant Cordura™ with PU coated zipper for serious wear resistance on the exterior and a plush microfiber interior to house essential documents, passport, credit cards, and mobile phone. Included is a TJB notebook for jotting ideas, plans or sketches, making it the perfect compact travel companion for long adventures and everyday experiences. The interior pen sleeve easily pairs with either the new Burwell click pen or redesigned Stilwell compact pen.

The Burwell – available in a polished stainless steel or in a PVD-coated black finish – is the second click pen in The James Brand offering, featuring a stainless steel two-part barrel in a compact design to easily slip into the pocket without risk of bending or breaking. The buttery smooth clicker allows for one-handed operation, and machined-in dot pattern along the barrel assures positive control, even in wet or slippery conditions. Finally, the metal-injection-molded (MIM) clip provides positive retention but makes it easy to deploy from your pocket or Gatecliff pen sleeve. The Burwell is offered with Parker-style D2 ink refills for a lifetime of use.

The entire Communication Collection is available now at and at select specialty retailers worldwide.

About The James Brand

The James Brand was created in Portland, Oregon, in 2012 by a group of designers and adventurers who were looking to make something better. Based on the adage that if you can’t find what you want, you might have to make it yourself, we decided to put pen to paper and design something new: knives and everyday carry gear made with premium materials, a minimalist design aesthetic and clear attention to the details. We make modern things that are a better reflection of our values and lives. Modern, minimal everyday carry is what The James Brand is all about. For more on The James Brand, please visit
