Neat! :) Think I'll pick one up to play with!

I've carried a Jeff Hall Nemesis Ti-Card since they were first made back in the early '00s. Lovely piece that doesn't freak anyone out.

The Cardsharp certainly looks like it fills a very specific need, too. I like it.

I wouldn't want something like that because I might forget that it is in my wallet as I fly frequently for work. With a decent sized pocket knife, I always remember to place it in my checked baggage.

It also looks like a high potential to cut yourself when opening the blade when compared to more conventional folding knives ... one of the worse things in a survival situation. But, on the flip side the best knife in a survival situation is the one you have with you!

Allen, I like that TI card. Could be used for striking also.

^ I need to learn how to use it as an improvised weapon - I'm sure that there are tricks so as to not fillet my hand! :)

I've got to handle one of these and generally it's pretty cool.

-Very easy and safe to use.
-Questionable strength (depending on what you'd use it for).
-Seems dang expensive for what it is.

Jim Grover/McCan has a good video on this stuff as does Janich. I think on the TI card if it is flexible, you can cup it/flex it. If not, pinch it close to the sharpened edges and target eyes.

^ Thank you. I'll definitely look that up!

My favorite use for the Ti-Card is at eateries - I can pull it out and trim the straw for my daughter and nephews without raising any eyebrows. :)
