Instablade Credit Card Knife Review

Overall Rating: 3/5 Stars
Introducing the Instablade by Survival Life
Survival Life has created yet another “free” product which is the credit card knife. Unlike the survival business card that doesn’t have a blade, this one has nothing but that.
Personally, I am a fan of the products that these guys create as they are really dirt cheap and they all have the cool factor and uniqueness to them.
I mean, if you don’t already think this thing is cool, then I really don’t know what to tell you. Now is it worth the shipping and handling?
Let’s break this thing down so you know what to expect in the mail.
Super simple design which folds into a credit card. Duh! It’s not going to be no kitchen style knife so don’t be expecting a 10″ blade to come in the mail.
Remember that it is the size of a credit card, so the actual blade won’t be any longer than that.It does fit in your standard credit card pockets so don’t worry about that part.
It is made out of stainless steel and comes in one color.
Out of the Box
Upon getting your brand new Instablade you can expect the knife, the knife and the knife. Oh and it does come with a survival booklet that comes with some cool tips.
The packaging is always sweet and I’m sure you’ll be like a little kid in the candy store when this thing lands.
Pros & Cons
- More than affordable
- Awesome design
- Easy to assemble
- Made out of stainless steel
- Is safe while in credit card form
- Super slim design
- Not going to be your best go to blade
What I Really Like
Okay so you already know that this is not going to be your all purpose knife. I do think that this is the perfect tool for those “I need a quick cut” type jobs.
Just like they say in their sales video, great for cutting boxes, little plastic ties on toys, or any other simple things that don’t need a whole machete.
I love h0w this thing is super thin but manages to come into a safe to handle blade once fully opened. It does fit in your credit card pouches, which is actually pretty awesome.
The best part about this whole thing is the price. yeah it may not be free, but for under $5, you really can’t beat that. We all spend $5 on nonsense and at least this one gives us something to show for and a cool one at that.
I love multitools like the Tread by Leatherman, but I still don’t think it is as cool as this under $5 item. This is a no brainer deal if you ask me.
The Real Price
To get this to you it is going to cost you at least $2.95 depending on where you’re from. There is no catch and that is all you have to pay.
There are some up-sells once you get your knife, but these are nothing more than other offers that you might be interested in.
Where to Buy:
You can’t find this anywhere else, so you will need to order it through the actual site. Even the site is hard to find so use the link below to get you there.
Final Opinion of the Instablade
For the price, I think it is more than worth it. You don’t need to purchase anything else if you don’t want to, and for $2.95 that is not even the price of a cup of coffee.
I mean, who do you know that even has this thing because I know no one. This is a sweet product for an even sweeter price, which I’m sure you’ll love.
Know anyone that’s into the outdoors or into survival type stuff? This $3 piece of metal will definitely make them smile. I know I would’ve loved it if someone got this for me.
The coolest part is the fact that they’ll never even know that this thing was free! But even at that, they’ll still be satisfied with their cool little gift.
Just look at this thing…
To Buy or Not to Buy?
Go for it! In most cases, you get what you pay for and I do believe that this offers more value than anything in the $3 range.
Use it for what it’s capable of and you should be good to go. Don’t go trying to chop down trees and don’t go trying to use it as a throwing knife because it is not for that type of stuff.
Little jobs here and there, but that’s about it. If you’re looking for another cool survival tool to add to your collection, this is one that I recommend.
I mean, who do you know had a cooler box cutter than this?
Thanks for reading my review of this knife and hopefully I have given you enough information for you to make a better decision.
