CardSharp2 - a superlight and supersharp utility knife, the same size as a credit card. Just three ingenious folding operations metamorphosis the card into an elegant pocket utility tool. Slimmer and lighter than an ordinary knife, updated features include a stiffer, polypropylene body (living hinges guaranteed for life) and a unique safety lock (cannot open in pocket or drawer and is child proof). The extra long stainless steel surgical blade ensures longer lasting rust free sharpness and the superlight polypropylene body includes a built-in protective sheath that helps prevent injury or blunting.
Top Customer Reviews
Bought a genuine Iain Sinclair Cardsharp 2 for $20 and will be attaching pictures of the real and the fake side by side. Just because the box says Iain Sinclair does not mean its genuine. Note** Customer pictures have moved and should be on the right hand side of the reviews.
A genuine Iain Sinclair Cardsharp 2 will have:
1) A serial number etched into the blade
2) "CardSharp" etched into the blade
3) Iain Sinclairs signature etched into the blade
4) A green background to the safety knob
5) More than for ridges on the safety and ridges on both sides of the cardsharp 2
6) Iain Sinclairs signature etched into the plastic
7) Iain Sinclairs web address etched into the plastic.
8) The genuine will have a sharp blade, the fake is pathetic
9) The genuine is actually sturdy when folded, the fake will bend.
If you do not have what you see in the pictures of the genuine cardsharp 2 or at the companies website you have a fake and should contact Amazon IMMEDIATELY. If you don't meet the list above contact AMAZON IMMEDIATELY you have a fake
UPDATE: Before committing to more, I ordered a single knife and selected AMAZON as the supplier (for a few more bucks). Wow, what a difference! It feels solid all the way around compared to the forgery I got from another supplier. No more flimsy plastic. I will post pics of what an Authentic Cardsharp knife and it's packaging should look like. I wish I took pics of the garbage I got last time. The only drawback this time is that the blade was polished metal, not black, as ordered. That's a minor nuisance considering the noticeable quality improvement over the obvious knock-off. I am tempted to note the seller's name here but Amazon frowns upon that. Even though that supplier clearly states in their own description, '100% Brand New! REAL Ian Sinclair knife not a knockoff!' You have been warned.
I will leave this rating as a single star only to call attention to the fakes. I give the authentic knife a 5-star rating.
Anyway.. Uh. Yeah. It's... It's not very good.
I wouldn't recommend it. Not even in a "Well I know it's a forgery, but the design's concept at its core is still the same so I'll take this really cheap alternative" sort of way. It's BAD... I'll run it in my wallet for a bit, see if there's ANYTHING redeemable about it, but for now? I say: Don't get it, period.
The presentation of its packaging is atrocious. The manual was in terrible shape, and clearly used very economical printing.
The knife itself is terrible. The jimping was damaged, and even the undamaged part of the jimping was rounded.
The knife has a very rudimentary edge, with a bad point. Despite the blade being incredibly thin, it does not cut well. It's possible that if it's like 440 steel or something it could be honed up to be serviceable. Not sure how long it'd hold that edge.
And obviously, holding the thing in hand feels almost dangerous. I understand that even the authentic design naturally lends itself to frailty, and is clearly not intended for heavy use, but THIS... This is on a whole other tier of sketchy. I have no idea what task is going to be tough enough to need a knife, yet fine enough that using this won't feel dangerous.
Why a liability? Trust me, you will forget this thing is in your wallet and will walk through areas where you aren't suppose to have "weapons." I have walked through security where they pinged me on my harmless pocket knife (https://www.amazon.com/SWISS-Classic-Black-Model-53183/dp/B0017V3DBE/ref=sr_1_23?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1480446114&sr=1-23&keywords=swiss+army+knife), but failed to on this. The last thing you need is to be pulling out the contents of your wallet for police identification and have this fall out.
