Be the envy of your EDC collecting buddies with this folding coin knife that has a Damascus steel blade


I’m an EDC fanatic and am always on the lookout for cool but useful gear that I can carry with me on a daily basis. But I don’t like just any gear. My favorite EDC products have to be small but awesome. The Folding Coin Knife from BucknBear ticks both of those boxes. This coin-sized pocket knife features a Damascus steel blade. What is Damasus steel?

Damascus steel was a type of steel used for manufacturing sword blades in the Near East made with wootz steel. These swords are characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water.

The Folding Coin Knife is small enough to fit in the coin pocket of your jeans, attach it to your keychain, or wear it around your neck. This particular folding coin knife sells for $49 at Huckleberry. But on a whim, I did a search for “folding coin knife” on Amazon and found a bunch of similarly styled coin knives priced much lower. Some under $10. Of course the ones on Amazon don’t have a Damascus steel blade, but they still look cool.
