We write about pocket knives of all sorts here, and given the obsession with the tiniest, most minimal EDC kits you can possibly assemble, it’s no wonder tiny knives are among our favorite.
Eclipse is a Kickstarter project from Fulcrum Knives and it’s nearing peak tinyness. The 440C steel blade folds into a circle and is only 0.7 inches in length when open. When the knife is folded it’s under two inches in diameter (the approximate size of a silver dollar). Even when flipped out it’s a mere 2.9 inches. Titanium beads and a button lock mechanism keep the blade folded up in your pocket but easy enough to flip out if needed. The Eclipse easily slides onto your keychain, and comes with a paracord lanyard if needed.
