The penknife has left its comfort zone and gotten more stylish. Cardsharp4 has reinvented the classic blade by cleverly concealing it in the shape of a business or credit card. A design by Iain Sinclair Design, an agency that has produced many innovative items over the decades.
Weighing only 24 grams, the Cardsharp4 knife ($90) is easy to take along wherever you go and even fits in your wallet. Its lightness in no way affects the strength or sharpness of the blade. In fact, the Cardsharp4 can easily slice through a seatbelt in an emergency thanks to its 420 series, 65 mm stainless steel blade.
Strong rivets secure the blade to the body, while a safety lock protects curious children. In three easy moves, the business card-shaped Cardsharp4 turns into an all-purpose surgical-grade blade. The perfect companion, both in the wilderness and the urban jungle.
