The Cardsharp, designed by Iain Sinclair, was originally designed as a lightweight surgical knife for medical centers. It folds nearly as flat as a standard credit card, weighs only 24 grams and promises cutting power equal to a surgeon’s scalpel. In fact, the Cardsharp easily cuts through an automobile safety belt, a tennis ball, and two-inch foam. Two childproof safety lock sliders offer ultimate rigidity in both open and closed positions. A tough, heavy-duty tool suitable for most cutting tasks, the Cardsharp includes a hard anodized surface finish and is available in natural silver or matte black with matching blade. This revolutionary knife is the one of the first real innovations in penknives since the first known folding knives, and for less than $14 it’s the sharpest knife in the world at the lowest cost.
