OK, more thread drift! For those who might want a different pocket knife, check out the Spyderco Delica 4. By far the best pocket knife I've ever had. Holds an edge really well. Suitable for lots of different cutting needs from food and cardboard cutting to personal defense and everything in between. Medium Tex recommended it to me several years ago. It's an awesome knife.

Its OK if some people don’t like you, not everyone has good taste.

Oh man... I like it. And to keep this thread on track, I'll see if I can work it into an avatar sometime soon.

Very cool looking. But aside form the RFID protection, how is this better that what I do, which is take my driver's license and one credit card with some cash and stick it in my front pocket? I mean, that has to be bulkier and heavier...

So it's about the size of a iPhone 3, and it's made of metal? Do you just put it in your front pocket or do you try to sit on it?

FWIW I've used the same wallet since I was about 12. It's held up remarkably well. In fact, it's one of the oldest items that I own. Perfectly molded to my buttcheek.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

I don’t know how big an iphone 3 is, but this is about the size of a credit card, with a thickness closer to a matchbook. One boxy one or two foldy ones.

It's not going to beat that. But if you need a couple of cards, a driver's license and some cash, it makes the whole bundle more manageable. Plus, it's titanium. And I do like me some titanium.

Might be good for self defense in a pinch, stopping a stray bullet or blade. Can’t hit someone in the face with a few bills folded over a credit card. O0

More importantly, it is an excellent organizer for those of us who carry multiple cards, plus some cash.

Great, if someone tries to stab me in the left hip, I'd be covered. :o

It's easier to just stay out of sketchy neighborhoods. :P
