Ok, in the land of arrowcards and abalone, this may not rise to a superior level of cool, but I thought it was a really neat idea.  I was hoping for a video of actual handling, but this'll have to do for now:

 I believe different versions of this have been around for sometime.

 The  plastic card oldest trick is to sharpen one edge, they get very sharp, and use it as a weapon. Kind of a no brainer , but simple things do not always come to mind. No one really inspects the card, and looks innocent with the other plastic most seem to carry. If I did this I would pick a card that I do not really use, and sharpen that one. Dont want some clerk cutting his pinky.

Funny this is showing up on blogs just recently. This thing has been around for a while now. I think I saw it on the internet as far back as this time last year.

That's how obscure stuff goes though I guess...new or not it's still interesting.

 Always , the more info we get the better. What is old to one person or a dozen, is new to 20  or more. Everyone didnot start in at the same time.
 No one can keep up with everything.
 My comment was just that, not being critical. .

I'm pretty sure, reading their webpage, that the blade is steel - it's just packaged in a "card" style of synthetics, and hinged to them.

I think ceramic would be better.

Yeah. The blade is surgical stainless and the 'handle' is polypropylene.

Titanium would be sweet. Ceramic might prevent it from being good for the wallet as it seems to be intended (all his products for that matter) The second you sit on some un-even surface....crack!

It's neat but my only issue is that you have to put it together every time you need it. It's like carrying around a utility knife with a pack of blades seperately...for me that overshadows the sex apeal.

I've seen those razors before in travel magazines. I think the blades are proprietary and only available online. If you could slap on an old school Trac-whatever head that you can buy anywhere then I'd consider it.

I'll stick with my 60+ year old Gillette travel safety razor. Might not fit in the wallet but it's every bit as small and you can still buy the blades at most drug stores...and cheaply. And it's indestructable!

there is actually something way "neater" than this. One of my instructors had something he called a ballistic credit card. Same size and shape as a regular card, but it is much harder plastic w/one side filed razor sharp. He always forgets to take his out of his wallet when he flies and the screeners miss it every time. I would check it out if you're into that kind of thing. Haven't been able to find one online yet. Perhaps you'll have better results...
