You may remember us waxing derisively on EDC knives a few weeks ago. Namely: they’ve drifted a little too Excalibur as of late. And the folks at LA-based Fulcrum Knives seem to be on board with that take.
They’re currently raising funds for their Eclipse knife on Kickstarter, a plucky, coin-shaped flip blade that’ll capably handle all your day-to-day hacking, cutting and carving concerns as inconspicuously as possible.

The Eclipse is a miniscule 6-mm thick, and morphs from its sheathed circular shape to a half-moon stainless steel blade with a simple click. It comes with an ergonomic fiberglass grip and easily stows on a keychain, and it can open boxes, carve apples and whittle sticks with equal aplomb. It can probably even handle a messy pizza in a pinch.
