    I figure I'd just review a knife every week.

    So, yeah. It is credit card sized.

    And ingenious. And a conversation starter.

    And you can tuck it in a wallet, and forget that it's there, until you need it.

    I'll vouch based on the cool factor.:cool:

    Another brilliant idea. I wonder. Is there room for others to ride once again upon the coattails of the Bard?

    I found it for $17.95 on Amazon, by name, and while I have an awesome credit card blade in my wallet already, I totally ordered an additional on of these for the lady.

    For 20 years I've carried a knife in my back right blue jean pocket, I've always had an issue finding ones slim enough, I've had pretty good luck with Kershaw but the last one I got was from a good deal offline at a sporting goods website, the damn thing is just too large, I don't have the kind of budget that could afford a benchmade but do you have a suggestion for a reasonable sized one handed opener that would fit nicely in a blue jean pocket? I hate the clip on your pocket ones and always remove the clip, that's normally where I keep a firearm and if there's a knife in the way...well that doesn't work for me.

    This one is just too small to me to warrant toting around. Originally done back in the 70's, today's model is hard to grip and prone to rust.
