Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the DeeJo Gentleman’s Knife. I honestly love this knife and it is the first time in all my years I was sold something with a marketing article! You know those articles that pretend to be about this cool new thing you need to know about but are really a sales pitch, pretending to be a digital magazine article.
As a knife enthusiast I really enjoy owning different patterns and sizes of knives along with knives that serve multiple purposes. This is one of those knives you really have to hold in your hand to appreciate. This is a 27G frame (both the model identifier in the product line and the weight is 27 grams). They also make a smaller 17G that may be best for some.
The one I own and in the image above is the Juniper Wood with serrations. If you watch my video my one complaint is that mine does not have wood anywhere near as “charactred” as the one in the image. DeeJo if you’re listening I recommend selling some as “A grade” and or selling additional scales as they could be swapped out in about 1 minute flat.
Other than that this knife is exceptional but here are some things to know….
- I really think the best place to window shop is on the main DeeJo site. It is much easier to browse everything there and find the style and size you want.
- Then go to Amazon and look up that particular frame there and buy it on Amazon, the reason is while they are priced the same in both locations, shipping on DeeJo.com is about 10 bucks vs. 5 on average on Amazon. Hence you get it faster and pay a little less. I mean 5 bucks is 5 bucks right?
If you want the exact one I got you can find it here, DeeJo 37G, Juniper Wood Half Serrated. This is not a bush crafting knife and certainly not a heavy working knife but it is an amazing EDC knife in the regular old world. It carries like air and opens like butter.

P.S. – Where is it made? DeeJo is a French company and the knives are assembled, finished, sharpened in France, I am pretty sure some of the components are sourced from China, Hong Kong or something like that though.
