The second thing you need to know about this two-and-a-half-inch pocketknife dangling from a dainty brass chain is that each necklace is a labor of love. The blade alone takes Wiseman two days to make, while the soldered and oxidized chain was made by the Brooklyn-based clothing and accessories label in New York.
The third thing you need to know about this is that it’s really cool. Why wear your brass knuckle-aping rings when you could don something that’s not just artisanal (Brooklyn buzz word alert!) but bad-ass as well? That’s what we thought.
