Card Sized Knife Tops Kickstarter Design Category

Share Article

The makers at Zootility Tools recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for WildCard, the thinnest ever folding knife. The card-sized utility tool exceeded its $20,000 target in less than one day and topped Kickstarter’s design category.

The geometric complexity of creating a folding knife in two dimensions took us years to perfect. After countless design hours and numerous iterations, we developed a pivot for the blade that allowed us to keep the tool incredibly thin, light, and durable.

The revolutionary knife has an all-stainless steel construction - a feat for a one ounce light, two millimeter thin knife. Over 500 design hours, five major revisions, and two years of development went into perfecting WildCard. The result is an extremely strong knife that’s thin enough to feel like just another credit card in your wallet. WildCard also features a bottle opener, screwdriver, and ruler, making it the perfect tool for everyday carry.

Another exciting feature is the WildCard’s patent pending FlyOff™ technology. An innovative hinge allows the blade to be detached and reattached without any tools, making it simple to remove and replace the blade. It’s a huge step forward for pocket knives.

WildCard is also a testament to domestic manufacturing. Creator Nate Barr eliminated pins, rivets, and complex assemblies from the WildCard design, allowing Zootility Tools to create a high-quality, American-made tool at an affordable price for consumers.

The WildCard is available to pre-order now at for $25 on Kickstarter until Wednesday, November 4
