Blade and Shade

Our Favorite Knives and Sunglasses Now Come in the Same Cool Material


December 19, 2019 Style By

Portland-based knife maker the James Brand and independent California eyewear brand Raen are now offering a pair of shades and a knife in matching tortoiseshell acetate.

The duo of accessories features handmade cellulose acetate, a strikingly stylish option for classic EDC. The Elko knife features a Sandvik 12C27 steel blade, measuring at a comfortable 1.74 inches, and includes a multi-functional key ring loop that doubles as a screwdriver in a pinch. The Wiley sunglasses, a tasteful style fit for a range of face shapes, are built with durable five-barrel hinges and polarized C-39 lenses from renowned German optics brand Carl Zeiss.

Included in the box set is a hard sunglass case with a custom-printed polishing cloth. So if you want to score some quality EDC in one of the coolest materials available, pick up the sharp set for $275.
