Can I get a 100% free credit card knife ?
Well, I asked the same question. Moreover, the answer was YES!
Instablade’s razor-sharp 420 gauge, Stainless Steel credit card knife.
If, you just want to go ahead and get the free Card Knife, then the links below.
If you want to know why I like the knife, then please read on.
After browsing through Amazon’s collection of small survival knife’s. More specifically, the credit card style knife. The best price I could find with my Prime free shipping was $9.99.This is my review of the free credit card knife, after using it for the last month. And I didn’t find any other free credit card knifes on the web. If you do find one please leave a link below.
Its is a massive upgrade from the last $10 survival knife I had.
The first one I bought was made of plastic with a none metallic blade, and then I bought another one with a slightly different design that was also made of synthetic material.
This is the first time using metal; in this case, it uses aluminum for the body and stainless steel for the blade.
So far, the pro points for the credit card style knife are:
1. It’s the cheapest I could find anywhere.
2. It’s made of 420 gauge stainless steel.
3. Razor sharp, and I mean surgical like sharpness!
4. Still sharp, after using it for the last four weeks on anything I could impress my friends with.
5. Arrived in the post, in a nice box.
6. Very fast shipping. Mine arrived in 3 days, that might vary of course depending on where you live.
7. It is smaller than a standard pocket knife.
It weighs nothing;
I would say less than an actual credit card. I don’t have any scales to give you an exact weight. Cutting through an aluminum beer can after I had drunk it, of course.Was like, a hot knife is going through butter.
Half inch nylon rope lasted about 3 or 4 saws.
And last years beef jerky fell apart with fear as I began to cut it. Five large boxes of floor tiles arrived for a job I was helping a friend out with Before he had time to rummage through his tool bag, for a box cutter, I had slashed open all the packaging and safely rehoused the Credit Card Knife in my wallet.
Some points about the knife I’d like to share :
1. 2.1 millimeters thick, or 5/64 of an inch. That’s the same thickness as a credit card.
2. It takes a few seconds to convert it from a credit card to a fully working knife.
3. So far, no signs of rust or corrosion, and it has got wet on a few occasions.
4. The handle worked well, it feels like its coated with some type of none slip paint.
5. Built-in safety sheath, to help prevent the blade opening in your wallet or pocket.
6. Hingeless opening system for faster access, most credit card style knives use this system.
7. The water-proof locking mechanism helps prevent liquids from causing rust.
For the thickness of the steel blade
I found it to be nice and rigid. Ok, it’s not going to cut firewood up or snap off a padlock in an emergency. However, you have to manage your expectations with such a lightweight and free credit card knife. For ease of carrying and how easy and fast it is to open, I would score it 9/10.
The last two Credit card knives were not free.
I bought them for over $10 each, and they only really lasted a couple of weeks of normal use. Before either bending, so I couldn’t put them back without the blade being exposed or getting so blunt they were useless. They were plastic and synthetic blade construction, and I struggled to gut a small bait fish with it after only a bit of use.
Also, on the none metal knives, I found one of them had an annoying tendency for the poppers that hold the handle together to come undone.
Not with this one, in fact, they took a few opening and closings for it to become just the right strength to pop shut easily, and then open up again. I would rather have to push the poppers together with a bit of force and vice versa apply a little more leverage to unlock them than to have it fall apart under a reasonable amount of pressure.
Let’s be clear about something; these free credit card knives are designed with emergencies in mind.
Trim an engine-hose that has split, at the side of the road, is really at the far end of this little blades capabilities.
For me the credit card knife is :
1. Easy to keep on you all the time.
2. An emergency tool for slicing through tough packaging.
3. Fantastic to keep concealed in case your you need a secret knife to cut through a rope your tied up with.
4. The bonus is, that if your hands are tied behind your back, you can slip it out of your wallet, in your back pocket. Unless you keep it in your jacket pocket, then I suggest paying up the cash lol
5. Great for both men and women.
6. Can impress your friends at work by slicing through your lunch apple to share with them.
For the price, I really can’t complain. Yes, I agree it’s not completely free. However, it is a fantastic Credit Card Knife and well worth the $4.95 shipping.

Will it save your life? Possibly.
Could you build a nice log cabin close to your favorite fishing lake? Probably not, let’s be honest – no chance lol
Will it become a family heirloom?
Depends on what part the country you live in. If you did manage to build a log cabin by the lake with it, then yes I would treasure it and pass it on to my children, because it will most likely be made from Valerian Steel or a unicorn’s horn.
Is it legal to carry concealed?
That depends on your local laws. Here it’s ok but check first just to be on the safe side. It won’t cut through police grade steel handcuffs or prison bars. It probably comes under the same rules as any normal utility or survival, foldable pocket knife.
Are there better ones on the market?
Yes, of course, there are, and they come with a price tag to match. However, let’s be honest unless you’re a Navy Seal or James bond could you justify 50 bucks for something you will probably forget is in your pocket until you need it?
Is it legal to ship through the post?
I have had other free pocket knives by mail, so I don’t think it breaks any rules for shipping. Again, check your local and international laws.
Is it an invaluable utensil?
It’s well worth having for one of these,
“I wish I had got that free credit card knife to cut those annoying tie wraps on this parcel I want to sneak past the wife.”
Also in case you’ve been wondering this is pure steel so don’t make the mistake of leaving it on your person if you go through the airline metal detector, it will set it off, and you will probably receive some harsh language from the security guards or even worse.
Oh and I forgot to mention, its comes with a free survival book.
