Cardsharp 2 packs a razor in a credit card package

Cardsharp 2

Do you favour preparedness (in the form of a knife) but lack pockets to spare? Iain Sinclair’s impossibly thin and light Cardsharp 2 takes up but a card slot in your wallet, yet contorts to reveal a 3 inch surgical stainless steel blade that’s legal virtually everywhere. We wouldn’t recommend hunting with a Cardsharp, but one thing’s certain: this knife’s bound to be with you when you need it (hopefully limited to opening letters).

Several years ago, designer Iain Sinclair launched the Cardsharp, a razor-sharp stainless steel knife folded into a credit card-shaped package. The knife combined real-world function with sleek, aesthetic design. Late
last year, Sinclair updated the knife into the Cardsharp 2.
The Cardsharp 2 fits naturally in a wallet or pocket

The Cardsharp 2 has 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) of cutting edgeAn evolutionary update, version 2.0 of the Cardsharp includes a stiffer polypropylene build and a child-proof safety lock. The knife packs 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) of stainless steel cutting surface into its own card-like sheath. A series of three folds is all it takes to turn the device from card to knife.
While the Cardsharp 2 doesn't offer as much utility as a multi-tool, it's a featherlight (13 gram) knife that's easy to transport anywhere. The knife can slide easily into a wallet, pocket or gear bag, and the blade locks into its sheath so it won't open accidentally. Sinclair says that the knife is less than a tenth the weight of a Stanley utility knife and about a seventh the weight of a Leatherman knife.
With three quick folds, you go from card to knifehttp://shop.nebudchenezzarshipworks.com 

It's not too difficult to imagine uses for a thin, razor-sharp go-anywhere knife. The Sinclair firm says that it's useful for everything from emergency wilderness survival to arts and crafts. It can be customized with silk screen printing or laser engraving for use as a gift or promotion. It retails for US$25.
The video shows how easily the knife transforms:
