An interesting toy for gadget lovers,Iain Sinclair’s Cardsharp Credit Card Folding Safety Knife is a must have.The CardSharp is a svelte knife that’s insanely thin and folds into a card to fit in your wallet.
At .078-inches thick and weighing only 13 grams, the CardSharp is just slightly over double the thickness of a standard credit card (.029-inches). The knife’s 3-inch blade is made of stainless steel, so no rusting here folks.And don’t worry, when we say the knife blade is secure in its card holder—it’s secure. So there’s no fear of it coming loose and scratching/slicing the pocket it’s kept in.
We are concerned with the sheer smallness of the handle though. Considering it’s built according to the measurements of a credit card (and is as thin too), using the knife extensively may result in a very common injury: your palm slides down the handle and ouch! You cut yourself.
Also, Iain Sinclair may never have envisioned this, but the lade, when removed, looks like it can be attached to a homemade handle that suits the users specifications.
The CardSharp is relatively cheap too. It isn’t officially on sale yet, it’ll start shipping in January for about $23 and can be pre-ordered.
