    Wow! I have just found an awesome site for vintage key rings. It's called Button Works. It seems to be based in Japan and focuses on all sorts of vintage items, but I'm most interested in the keyring items. I will have to link to some of the specific items when I get a chance.

    A new section was added to the keychain systems. Sometime back, EDCF member Exploriment suggested a system he uses, but it really falls somewhere between a keychain and a pocket organizer, but didn't really fit either one very well, so I just called it an "other" system and posted a write-up.

    Man, I tried searching on this site for an order form, but couldn't find it-where'd you go to order?! Do you have to email? :confused:

    Leather Pen Knife Key Case - Personal Favorite - I highly recommend this product!
    + provides some structure for the keys
    + silences keys
    + keys can be easily separated
    + no modification needed
    - adds some weight
    - adds some volume, though not as much as it seems it would add

    I don't think they have one. I called them, arranged an order, and mailed them a check. It's old school, but it works.

    Can I add the Steel Flame Hook to this list?

    Steel Flame Hook
    + Quick Detach
    + Hand Finished
    + Won't unhook from belt loop
    - Price ($$$)
    - Adds some bulk to keys
    - Special order pieces

    I just felt the need to bump this thread. It was one of the first useful ones I read when I joined EDCF. :)

    There are plenty of useful and inspiring ideas on this thread...
    any other front pocket wallet mods? I'm working on my own but looking for additional ideas.
    thanks!
