For the longest time, the pocket knife for most people is either the switchblade or the Swiss Army Knife type multi-tool. Pocket knives are a handy tool for all kinds of situations from something mundane like opening a carton box to special situations like having something to clench between your teeth as you swing from vine to vine. The WildCard is a different type of pocket knife as it is designed to be the size of a credit card so that you can easily carry it in your wallet.
The WildCard is not the first credit card sized pocket knife. We have seen a few card sized multi-tools that include a removable knife. And then there is the CardSharp, a credit card sized tool that with a few folds, turns into a functional knife. The WildCard on the other hand, has very well thought of design features that make it a strong contender for the pocket knife of choice for an Everyday Carry (EDC) kit.
The big advantage of credit card sized tools is of course the fact that you can carry it in your wallet. That is one less thing to remember to carry with you and also less chance of it falling out of your pocket and losing it. For a credit card sized multi-tool, it is fairly thin at only 2 mm or about the thickness of 2 credit cards stacked together.
The thing we love the most about the WildCard is the pivoting blade. Instead of a rivet that increases overall thickness significantly, the WildCard uses a proprietary patent pending FlyOff pivoting system. The pivoting system allows the blade to rotate out and lock in place when in use and it also rotates and locks in place for safekeeping.
Should you forget to remove the tool from your wallet at airport security, you can remove the blade from the card without using a tool. So instead of losing the entire WildCard tool, you just lose the blade which you can easily buy a replacement later on.
Besides being a pocket knife, there are a few more trick up this card tool’s sleeves. It can also be used as a screwdriver, a pry bar and of course, a bottle opener. One of the edges also has ruler markings so you can make a quick (although short) measurement if needed. Last but not least, the blade itself has a serrated edge, perfect for cutting through hard or tough surfaces.
