Iain Sinclair CardSharp Utility Knife Review

I’m a fan of unusual or paraticularly functional knives, six months ago I got my first Leatherman Wave, which is an awesome tool. I just recently purchased the brand new Iain Sinclair CardSharp Utility Knife, and so far I think it’s pretty good! Its credit card form factor makes it easy to carry around, and its sharp blade makes it useful in a variety of situations. The only criticism I have is that the card/handle is plastic and feels quite flimsy. I was expecting the whole card to be made of thin aluminium, or maybe something more grippy. I’m also worried the little plastic bit that keeps the blade in place whilst closed may potentially wear down eventually. That said, it’s still a unique product, and the blade is excellent, so I definitely recommend it.

I made a quick video review of it (actually one of my first videos). Apologies for the bad quality, I used an old external iSight; turns out their resolution sucks ;)

Here is Iain Sinclair’s own video.

    Wow, that’s bad. Get in touch with them and they’ll immediately ship one out to you. They did make a mistake on one of my shippings.
