    Right now my keychain is kinda boring (small light and 3 keys), and I was looking for some cool tools and things to put on my keychain. Keep in mind, I don't want to spend a lot of money and I also want to keep my keys light.

    I'd suggest a nice Swiss Army knife! Or maybe a TEC accessories inchworm. :)

    I've seen the thread and have only ventured a few pages in for fear of emptying the bank account. I have a "condition" whereby I'm invariably drawn to small, shiny gadgets with the desire to give them a nice warm home either in my pocket or on my keys. ;)

    With proper counselling and medication I hope to be cured one day. :D

    Phone pic warning here. Repost from earlier thread on forum somewhere.
    [​IMG]

    Maratac AAA flashlight in SS (cheaper alternative would be a Fenix E05? @ Forum store).

    TEC Ti glowfob. Also made in SS and AL I think, if you'd prefer to save a lil. Also from forum store.

    Daniel Fairly keychain tool, purchased from Craftsman area of forum.

    SAK Classic in silver alox.

    All of these are less than $50 each, the flashlight and SAK classic would prob run $20ish at most.

    Sometimes, boring is good! I am a big fan of the KISS principle, especially when it comes to keychains. Apart from the actual keys, a Fenix E01 and a token for supermarket trolleys are all I keep on mine.

    If you want to spice things up a little, I suggest that you look at the keychain/keyring itself, and how everything is kept together. You could get one of these cool pocket clip tools from the forum store (Pickpocket or P-7), or maybe a mechanic's keyring. Another suggestion is a nice carabiner for the little light. Sometimes, being able to quickly detach your light from your keys can be a big plus.

    If you don't mind the weight, a Leatherman Squirt PS4 is the best mini-toolbox you could carry, and it's pretty cheap as well.

    yes i think the Style PS is the perfect tool for somebody, who does always carry some kind of blade/knife, i don`t do this, so my edc tool must have a little blade like the dime or the squirt or something of the juice line.
