Cardsharp 2 | Credit Card Folding Knife

Sometime ago we did a post on the amazing CardSharp by Iain Sinclair. Well, Iain Sinclair Design wanted us to check out the new improved version of the superlight and supersharp utility knife, the CardSharp2. The James Bond style credit card sized pocket knife has some new and updated features, it has a stiffer, polypropylene body (living hinges guaranteed for life), and a unique safety lock (cannot open in pocket or drawer and child proof).

With just three ingenious origami style folding operations, metamorphosise the card into an elegant pocket utility tool. Slimmer and lighter than an ordinary knife, itīs extra long stainless steel surgical blade ensures longer lasting rust free sharpness. The superlight polypropylene body includes a built-in protective sheath that helps prevent injury or blunting. CardSharp2 is an ingenious conversation piece. A sharp idea that slips safely inside your wallet or kit bag.

Suitable for camping and expedition use, Cardsharp is an essential outdoor companion/survival tool. The waterproof design is dishwasher proof and will not rust up like conventional penknives - uniquely friction free as there are no conventional hinges.

We must say, we tested this thing on a variety of materials, and man...it is sharp! This is a must have for gadget lovers, just pack the 13-gram bladed perfection into your wallet and you e ready to go!

Get your CardSharp at Iain Sinclair or at Amazon
