To be honest, we’re not exactly sure of the purpose of this nifty device (to stab unsuspecting pickpockets with?), but it still looks pretty cool nonetheless. The Cardsharp Credit Card Folding Safety Knife is basically just what it sounds like: a knife in the shape of a credit card.

 

Except, it’s not actually a credit card and doesn’t hold one, so it seems to be only good for fitting into your wallet. We guess that’s a cool place to hold it, and it certainly makes it easy to take with you wherever you might go. You might have a tough time getting it through TSA, though.

 

It’s made with ultra-light aluminum and an anodized surface, so this thing’s pretty durable, and it locks into place so you don’t have to worry about it popping out and poking you in the thigh. Iain Sinclair, the company that designed the knife, claims it’s great for outdoor use when camping or even for cutting through safety belts in a car in an emergency.

 

It was originally designed as a surgical knife so it’s pretty sharp, and the blade is 65mm long. It could certainly come in handy in a pinch, but we don’t actually recommend trying to use it for self-defense.

 

There are multiple models of the knife on the website, though you’ll have to check back regularly to see when it becomes available again; it’s currently in pre-order for the newest one.

Avoid Complete Disaster if Your Purse is Stolen

When you are home and lose your purse, it can be extremely problematic. When you are traveling and it happens, it can be disastrous. While the event itself can't be undone, following a few simple steps can help lessen the sting.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

What Not To Do in Singapore

Singapore is known for being on the cutting edge of many industries, so it can be strange for foreigners to group the city-state with developing Southeast Asian nations like Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam. But the multicultural hub represents diverse nationalities and religions, and knowing as much as possible before visiting Singapore can help you prevent any faux pas. Here are a few things you shouldn’t do when visiting Singapore.

Best Wildlife Tours in South America

South America is home to some of the world’s most unique and fascinating wildlife. Between the mountains of Patagonia and the stunning paradise islands, there’s no shortage of adventures to be had.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
