You can assume that if a knife can somehow be concealed in an otherwise unassuming pocket-sized object, someone’s selling it. By combining these remarkably sneaky knives, you could easily have upwards of ten separate blades on your person at all times. If you’re into that.
The Gerber Zip Blade: $15 via Amazon
Although some of the knives on this list are more like fun collectibles than legitimate tools, the knife makers at Gerber have put real thought into the stealth EDC knife concept. One of their coolest and most practical knives is a zipper pull (or keychain). For $15 and at the featherweight of .32oz, you get this extremely discreet .68-inch stainless steel utility blade. Not bad.
The Gerber Money Clip Knife: $25 via Amazon
“Phone, keys, knife, wallet, gun…” could be “Phone, keys, money clip, gun” with this money clip. Not for everyone, but a neat little tool.
Titanium Wedding Ring “Knife”/Escape Tool: $62 via Amazon
Apparently, you can use this thing to get out of handcuffs, or for other miscellaneous emergency applications. Your mileage may vary.
Carabiner Knife: $16 via Amazon
A keen-eyed fellow ‘operator’ will notice this is a knife, but it’ll fly under everyone else’s radar. A clever thing, especially for the millions of people who use a carabiner for keys anyway.
Para-Claw Paracord Wristband Knife: $20 via Amazon
If you’re going to be ‘that guy’ with the paracord bracelet, you might as well be this guy.
SOG Key-Shaped Folder: $8 via Amazon
Can you put enough knives on a keyring to make it qualify as a collection in itself? “Challenge accepted,” says SOG.
Covert Nickel Knife: $37 via Amazon
From the same people who brought you the wedding ring escape knife comes this weird gadget. For nearly $40, the thing seems overpriced. Then again, it does have a novelty appeal. Perhaps a stocking stuffer for someone who’s going for EDC wizard rank.
Kubotan Knife/Glassbreaker: $13 via Amazon
This blade-fitted variant of the classic Kubotan self-defense tool isn’t quickly deployable as a knife, but it could definitely serve as a glassbreaker in a pinch, plus the concealed blade component, because why not?
JJMG Credit Card Transformer Knife: 3 for $10 via Amazon
You can’t make a list of EDC tools these days without something credit-card sized. There are dozens of different card knife designs out there, but these guys seem to do it best.
Coin-Shaped Knife Gizmo: $5 via Amazon
This bizarre knife design looks like something out of Bladerunner, which, depending on your style, could be a good thing.
Ladylike Leaf Keychain Knife: $8 via Amazon
Last but not least, this one makes a nice little gift for your tacticool sweetheart.
