So these guys sent me a prototype to play with it. Essentially, it’s a tiny (keychain form factor) folding knife that uses disposable X-acto blades for the cutting edge. It’s made out of something that feels like plastic but that they call a “Proprietary material” that is stronger than aluminum and lighter than steel. Whatever the case may be, this thing is TINY and LIGHT. It’s also pretty usable for opening boxes and cutting other every day shit.

The originators envisioned this thing being hooked to a keychain. My only concern is that the blade isn’t protected all that well when collapsed and I can totally see myself cutting the hell out of a finger when searching for stuff in my pocket. Otherwise, it’s pretty great… Easy to open, easy to close, and it’s literally as sharp as a hobby blade.
