    Credit Card Knife, anyone ever used one?

    Hi all, was wondering if anyone here has ever bought/used one of these things:

    http://www.amazon.ca/Sinclair-Cardsh.../dp/B008RST9YA

    They are only 13 grams and 2.2mm so certainly handy for having around in your wallet. Granted this would not be advisable to have while boarding a plane or something ofc but I am interested to see what you all think since having a small and lightweight utility knife for random things here and there sounds like a good idea

    Ebay sells them cheaper than amazon but thought I would use that link as a reference. Thanks for your input.

    I guess they might be good for opening packets and stuff. I can't really think of a use for them that something else wouldn't do better, other than the fact that you could pretty much always have it with you.

    I have one. Rarely, rarely use it, as I carry a carbon opinel in my pocket to work, and a spyderco outside of work...but, when I do use it, I'm sure glad I have it!

    It really is compact, and folds nicely. In hand its not too comfortable, but in a pinch it works....

    Sometimes I can't believe I watch this crap, lol. Interesting little EDC though.

    The Chase United MileagePlus Club Card actually has a layer of metal sandwiched in the middle, so I would recommend this card for sharpening

    basically I am wanting either this or maybe a victorinox swiss card. Lord knows this is not something I will use frequently, and the cardsharp isn't a great blade, but being so small and portable, I am still leaning towards it
