From the self-proclaimed "most advanced Cyber Product Startup in the world" comes a sci-fi-inspired pocket knife that invites backers to “be ahead of time.” The futuristic blade from Ukrainian startup Inertix is certainly one slick-looking implement, and with a neat one-handed opening mechanism to match.

The Inertix Exoblade is built to last, matching a duralumin body with a stainless steel blade. This body consists primarily of a spring-loaded sliding mechanism that can be engaged through a finger loop at one end, enabling users to deploy the blade with a simple flick of the wrist.

The knife measures 10.5 cm (4.1 in) long when closed, while the blade adds another 7.5 cm (2.95 in) when fully deployed. This compact size should make the Exoblade a manageable addition to an everyday carry setup, with a bottle opener integrated at one end to offer a little extra functionality. Meanwhile, the Japanese characters for “cyberpunk” emblazoned on the handle’s edge are a nod to its future-focused inspiration.

Inertix is offering its Exoblade knife to early backers over at its Kickstarter campaign for pledges of US$159, and hopes to begin shipping the tool in September this year if everything goes to plan.

Alexander Krivosheya uses good materials. But, a knife that can be twirled around a finger to open a blade that's sharpened on top and bottom isn't safe.

Certainly not made for cutting sheetrock. My thoughts tend toward: switchblade, gravity knife, illegal weapon. And $160, what the heck?

This appears to be a copy of Maria Stalina's design 🤔

Very expensive for a pretty knife of unknown quality.
It would be illegal in the uk though

Carried a Case knife most my life. They would last a decade or so easily. Then place them in a drawer and 'next'. Couldn't live long enough to go through 8-9 as this one would cost for one day.
