06 Aug The Everyday Blade From Korcraft: Ultralight Razor Blade Holder
It seems like every few months (well, even every few weeks) we come across someone else trying to make the world’s smallest pocketknife (or world’s smallest anything, to be fair). The Everyday Blade from Korcraft is the latest addition to that tradition. They bill the Everyday Blade as an “incredibly small” pocket knife that fits 12 different kinds of razor blades – such as #11 hobby blades.
The handle itself is only .82” long and weighs less than one ounce. That’s small and light enough to easily fit on your keychain, and there’s a small lanyard hole for just that. It’ll work with any of those 12 blade types from a variety of brands – all made of carbon steel – and all of them can be found at your local hardware store or online. To replace the blade, simply unlock the old one with a key or screwdriver and slide the new one in.
The Everyday Blade can be used either right or left-handed, has various grip and thumb points to protect your fingers, and is made from a “proprietary material” that is stronger than aluminum but lighter than steel. It features what is essentially a slide or frame lock. It’s easily opened with one hand, too.
Small and fast. If you’d like one, you can back them on Kickstarter – where they start at $15, including two #11 hobby blades, 2 straight blades and 2 curved blades. They won’t be out until Winter 2019, however.
But hey, if you like small razor blade holders – this is what you’re looking for.
