    Here's a new wallet card with some interesting features:

    http://www.zootilitytools.com/

    It was originally a Kickstarter project that was funded. Retail cost now is $12 plus $2 shipping in the USA. The video on the site and other 'features' descriptions seem a little over the top, but I just ordered one anyway.

    After I receive it more info to follow. Film at 11. (Worst case it will be another addition to my growing "not too functional, but still cool" collection of EDC stuff.)

    I actually got one off of the kickstarter. I'm still waiting for it to show up.

    We'll see how it holds up. It's quite a bit thinner than most credit card sized tools. After asking the guy who makes them, I know it's made from 410 steel. I plan on doing a review when it comes in.

    Looks interesting, if for nothing more than the latch slipping function.

    Well, Quixotica, you'll probably receive yours long before mine arrives. Please let us know what you think.

    It's pretty much dead anyway. I don't think it's been posted in in nearly a month. :)

    Well, it wasn't quite as useful as it appeared ... I'd put it in the "curiosity" category.

    It was pretty crappy, to be honest. It has some pretty poor finishing on it. The only function that worked half decent was the bottle opener. It could probably be pretty nice if it had any quality control and they did a few minor adjustments.

    I agree: the standard screwdriver COULD be functional if the edge was honed.

    The small curved edge for the letter opener is about the ugliest finishing I've ever seen on a tool. I'd be ashamed to put a product out that looked like that.

    So it didn't aid in breaking into the neighborhood houses? :ninja:

    I couldn't find a door it worked all that well on. The patio door at my in laws house can be opened with a credit card in about 5 seconds. It took me a minute or two to get the monkey to slip in it.
