Folding Credit Card Knife

In art., life., life.art.commerce. on April 19, 2011 at 11:16 am

This certainly isn’t the first folding credit card-sized knife we’ve seen—my friend and colleague Brian Barrett just came across an affordable $25 model recently—though this decidedly intimidatingcarbon fiber blade is the one I’d rather be carrying around in my pocket (Barrett stood by his cheap-o cutter; we’re deciding the matter with a knife fight under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway).

What’s so good about my knife. The Creditor, as its called, was designed by knife-maker John Kubasek and recently won an award for Most Innovative Knife Design. It’s made of carbon fiber, D2 tool steel, and titanium and weighs just 40 grams. It has a detachable money clip—with the clip, it’s the thickness of three credit cards; without it, it’s as thick as just one. And just look at the thing. It’s like a shark had sex with the Predator and their baby happened to be a folding blade the size of a Barnes and Noble gift certificate. Barrett doesn’t stand a chance.
