I think you're right. I should probably start collecting SAKs for spare parts lol
Oh yeah I forgot this..
The guy who runs the blog everydaycommentary has a Bushidomosquito custom Rambler with titanium scales and a trit insert.
It even has a pocket clip...the coolest keychain tool I've seen.
It's a shame bushido has disappeared...
I wonder if a member here can mod up a favorite SAK model w. Ti scales?
Get set up

Mail call from the notorious Edcgear, Chinese knock off guys! Figured I'd give it a shot... I'm not disappointed at all, mostly because my expectations were really low at the start ;-)
I'm going to have some fun with my bench grinder.
Metal is pitted, gates don't open fully, edges are sharp, finish is inconsistent and the pry bar tips are disfigured.
Overall Rating: 2 out of 10
I'm not overly bothered. Impulse buy, a fun project and a learning experience.

WOW! Those look like hammered ! Can't wait to see what you get out of 'em though!
Nice, I just ordered some stuff from them too. My parabiner copy is AWOL but it looks like I'm not missing out on much.
If your parabiner knockoff ever shows up, post some photos. I'd be interested to see how consistent their stuff is.
It actually arrived! Strange, mine seems to be in better condition than yours:
No pitting or sharp edges, yours even appears to have cracks in the corners of the hexes? Spring gate really sucks, though.
This is the max it can open! Less than 5 mm. And it feels like it's going to break. I wonder what I can do about this...
Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
Might be possible to put in a new gate. I took the gate off mine so I could sand down the pitted side.
Oh I feel like flattening the surfaces and changing the gate, but it's only $3... If I were going to spend so much time on it, I might as well buy the real one. Maybe use this to practice modding?
Yep. That's what I did anyway. I ground the pry bar part on the big one. Didn't turn out very well lol
Ok I found out my 2 mm brass rod fits in it so I replaced it haha. It can open all the way now but I think that will deform the brass.
Sanded tibolt clip with 600 grit
Stone washed bandicoot with smooth lawn pebbles inside a plastic peanut butter jar.
Anodized both with 9 volts and diet cola.
I have been trying to find a better carry solution for my jeep car key for a long time. I think I'm finally getting closer.
First, I removed the transponder from the original key. After several failed projects, I found I could cut a hole in a copy of the key to hold the transponder.
Since it was now much flatter, I realized I could finally use a key shackle. There are several popular ones, but I chose the KeyGrip.
Next, I cut, ground, and drilled my keys until they fit the optimum shape. I am still trying out various configurations.
Great idea with the master link and McGizmo clip! I've had just a lanyard and Raven Workshop bead on the other end of my KeyGrip. I may have to borrow that idea.
Thanks! It frees up room for more keys or gear. Only... I wish I had a masterlink! I'm not even sure where I can buy one of those
I scavenged this link from my old bike. Pounded out the pins with a hammer and awl. Masterlink would be much better.
