At first I wanted to say we don’t sell anything like this, until I quickly remembered our Leatherman Skeletool CX, but still, this product I’m about to introduce is far smaller and in my opinion, much cooler. No disrespect Leatherman! The CiFer, a kickstarter project, is a 6-in-1 carbon fiber tool that helps with common daily tasks and fits perfectly in your wallet.
Beyond Vision, the company who designed this product, says they are destined to be different and help people realize their ideas and create new products that complement the use of various gadgets, and improve daily life. The CiFer kickstarter project exceeded its £1,300 (about $2,162 USD) with 66 backers. And for good reason. Like I mentioned earlier, the CiFer is a 6-in-1 tool made out of carbon fiber. The different tools are…
A bottle opener
And most importantly, it fits into any standard wallet so you can take it everywhere. It weighs just 12 grams so your back pocket won’t feel a difference. Someone send this to George Costanza!
“We will use a top layer of 2/2 Twill wave 200gr/sqm carbon fibre which is 0.27mm thick followed by 3 layers of 2/2 Twill wave 650gr/sqm carbon with a thickness of 0.6mm. This gives a final thickness of 2.07mm and the best possible strength. The thin (0.27mm) carbon fibre fabric gives you the perfect looking finish and the addition layer of thin carbon provides a lot of support (reinforcement).”
The CiFer was designed and made in the UK but ships outside the UK as well. You can stay updated with Beyond Vision on Facebook or their kickstarter page. And be sure to watch the video below. Spoiler alert: they throw the CiFer into a blender to test its toughness, and lets just say, the carbon fiber wins!
