A key goal when it comes to designing everyday carry items is combining maximum utility with minimum inconvenience, and the form of a credit card is proving an increasingly popular way to get the job done. The Lynx from Jho Knives is a titanium-coated implement shaped to slide in and out of a wallet for slicing and dicing when needed, with a stylish sheath to protect it and its surroundings from damage during transit.

Offering less weight and bulk than you'd be looking at with a typical pocket knife, blades that come shaped as a credit card, such as those from Cardsharp and other more versatile offerings like the T'spin, come in a package that is relatively easy to store and have on you when it's called for.

The Lynx doesn't overdo it with fancy folding mechanisms and secondary tools. Rather, it is quite simply a card made from VG10 stainless steel with a sharp edge along one side claimed to be good for all your shaving, slicing and chopping needs. The opposite edge and half of the card is covered in perforations for easy gripping.

The knife has dimensions of 88 x 50 mm (3.4 x 2 in), with a thickness of 2 mm (0.08 in). When not in use, the card can be slipped into a protective sheath made from tear-proof and water-proof bituminized paper, which is still claimed to be compact enough to slide into your wallet.

Up for order from Jho Knives website, the Lynx is priced at US$95, with a beadblast finish rather than titanium coating also available as an option.

At $5 maybe, at $95 it is an overpriced and limited usefulness.

95 USD for titanium ... maybe
Mr T
Yep, crazy price, especially considering the format and its limitations. I have a little knife on my keyring that folds into a key shape, have had it for years and despite being a cheap chinese product (dx item number 2088223) it has done heaps of work. Mainly used for opening cartons, including cutting twine and plastic strapping (take a bit of force to do that but haven't broken it yet).

Just put a flat razor into your wallet.

Intriguing idea...stupid price.

I agree with the other comments, overpriced, can just as well carry a razor blade, and doesn't have a practical use..unless it's to get you stopped by TSA because you forgot you were carrying it.

What is with the serrations along the back edge? Do they have a purpose?
