WildCard wallet pocket knife has a removable blade for TSA approval

Pocket knives are extremely useful yet prohibitively bulky compared to the slim wallets and smartphones used on a daily basis. As such, they can feel a bit uncomfortable to carry around or easily get lost.

Nate Barr, the inventor of the PocketMonkey┬ámulti-tool, has created its spiritual successor: the WildCard. Its main draw is the serrated-edge pocket knife built around proprietary FlyOff Technology. This technology replaces the commonplace pin most knives pivot on, saving┬áthe space necessary to make the WildCard just 2mm thick — as thick as an average credit card. Blade guards and the single-angled side ensure users won’t accidentally cut themselves while they use it.

T-Rex tool changes the bar, makes it easier to pry stuff loose

Tearing up flooring can be one of the most time-consuming tasks when it comes to home repairs. If staples were used as a part of laying flooring, it can mean spending hours using a screwdriver to pry them out.

patent-claimedT-Rex is touted as taking those hours and reducing them to minutes. Three groves in this pry bar allow the user to pull out not only a standard nail, but also staples, pin nails, and framing nails. The rounded teeth simplify the task of getting under stubborn staples and getting leverage to pull them out. A dimple near the top allows the pry bar to have a tri-pod type of shape, which helps keep it from bending out of shape or warping over time.

T-Rex is a nifty little house tool, great for those DIYers who own homes. Interested backers might also like to check out TrackBelt360, CaulkKnocker, and Hangman, This campaign seeks to raise $50,000 on Kickstarter. For $10, backers get one nine inch ripper with an expected delivery of March 2015.
