    I had this ancient frn Dragonfly as my keyring "multitool" for years. I wouldn't bother to carry anything smaller with just one blade. Haven't tried the others suggested here, and I've moved on from keyring folders. Easier to use if not attached to the keys.

    You can really get things done with a Dragonfly. A marvellous little knife.

    Is it wrong to carry a Jester and a Ladybug on the same keychain? Ladybug is serrated, SS Jester plain edged. Have carried for 10 years.
    The PE Ladybug is in the car...

    I second the no keychain bit. Makes it much easier to use the knife.

    I get the no-keychain thing, but it's not bad for a backup. Also, if you get a good mechanism for quickly releasing the knife from the keychain, you can almost eliminate that issue entirely.

    I feel like the Ladybug is too big on a keychain, I hate, hate, HATE keychain bulk. YMMV. I like the small bugs for keychain duty. You can accomplish many tasks with the small blade. I did wish they had other scale options, but, it is what it is and it works.

    When I carry my Ladybugs, they are in my watch/change pocket, and I never notice them.

    Good luck.

    What's that little black thing with the blue line through it?

    Nothing EDC-related I'm afraid. Just the fob needed to get into the building i work in.

    I guess I'm lucky in that my office building has a card for that. Kept in my wallet.

    i just got two ladybugs and they are super small, i prefer to carry an actual pocket knife then have a small knife on my keys. I do how ever have a Gerber Curve on my keys that has a small knife on it. More so a multitool then a one bladed knife.

    Another Ladybug ZDP189 fan here! have a full range of blade versions, but keep coming back to this one.
    Tempted to try a Manbug though just to see if bigger size would fit my hand better. Although that said I have no problem opening Ladybug's one handed and they feel comfortable.
