CardSharp: the credit card that transforms into a knife

CardSharp: the credit card that transforms into a knife


On this year’s “must-have” list for the gadget-lover close to your heart we’ve been intrigued by design house Iain Sinclair’s wallet collection. While our inner-geeks love the wallet-sized HD and 3D cameras, the CardSharp utility knife is equally exquisite. Designed to be stored in your wallet, the knife is the dimensions of a credit card, but with three little folds it transforms into the utility knife you see before you.

The built-in protective sheath protects you from injury and the stainless steel surgical blade from blunting , plus its composition makes it slimmer and lighter than standard knives. Weighing in at just 13 grams and measuring just 120 x 120 x 5mm.

It’s set to ship Q1 2011 for $25 US in your choice of natural stainless steel or black Teflon coated blad. You can reserve it now for half that price and come Christmas morning you can give the gift of a picture of a credit card-sized utility knife! After all, it’s the thought that counts, right?
