The James Brand the Redstone | Tangerine + Stainless
The Redstone is designed to be a compact and lightweight outdoor knife that you’ll bring along anywhere the trail may take you. With the TJB new island design concept, the Redstone allows for a finger to rest between the islands, providing superior grip, especially for a smaller knife. The Redstone is built around a one-piece die-stamped chassis which makes it incredibly strong, reducing the overall number of parts. The Redstone features the TJB Slide-Lock design for secure lock-up and easy one-handed use. The Redstone features a Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel for high corrosion resistance and great edge retention and has TJB very first bent-wire clip, it’s the lightest and simplest clip possible.

Knives and tools for people who live adventurously
Designing the Redstone.
TJB developed the Redstone with professional rock climber and photographer Savannah Cummins. She gave TJB a great insight; there are always three things in the top of her pack: a Bic lighter, some lip balm, and a small pocket knife. The thing about a pocket knife is that you never know when you are going to need it, but when you need it– you really need it. No other tool will do the job. Making one that is small enough to make the cut when you are packing your gear, but useful enough for hard and repeated work is a difficult undertaking. That was the mission of the Redstone.
The outdoor adventure knife, entirely re-imagined.
The Redstone looks different because it is different. TJB created a one-piece chassis design that allowed them to minimize parts and keep out dirt and grime, while providing the structure required for the mechanism and grips. It can be fully-operated (both opened and closed) with one hand, and has a slide-lock mechanism, meaning that it’s extra secure when opened, but still easy to unlock and close with one hand. The Redstone uses TJB's very first bent-wire pocket clip– one of the very lightest and most functional clip designs out there. It also comes with a lanyard, so that you can deploy it easily or clip it to other things. Add in a partially serrated blade ready to cut or rip, and the Redstone really is the full package.
Made to go anywhere.
Everyone in the backcountry needs a pocket knife, but there are few that you can both trust and blend seamlessly alongside the rest of your gear. The opportunity we saw with the Redstone was to make a small, lightweight knife that you could toss in your pack and basically forget about (until you really need it), but that had more premium materials, and was full-featured. The Redstone features our very first formed-wire pocket clip, a hand-hold grip design, an ambi-dextrous slide lock mechanism, and a partially serrated blade.
