    From noon clockwise:
    Gerber Dime
    Ultra Remote Starter/Keyless Entry

    Subaru 2.5RS key
    Swiss+Tech Utili-Key
    House Key
    (above 3 are on a True Utility Keyring System key organizer, the clip for the dime is also from this product)


    This'll be changing soon, but I keep it pretty minimal. When I get just about anywhere (ie work), I detach the Dime and it ends up the only thing in my front right pocket. Really hoping to find a OPMT to replace it as my daily never-leaves-my-person tool, or possibly the Leatherman Style CS will suffice.

    Exotac Freekeys are on the way to replace the main split ring and the remote starter ring, Preon P0 may get added.

    Alright, my keychain setup is pretty much done, or I should say setups because I have several. Basically I match them to what I'm wearing for the day (Green/copper if I'm wearing brownish colors, black/silver if I'm wearing black/grey/blue colors) I use pocket clips with jeans but carabiners with shorts because for some reason shorts pockets are nearly vertical. Who thought that was a good idea?!? My car keys switch back and forth between the two, obviously. And my house keys are removed for this pic.

    Another bead, SAK, and my favorite Atwood tool of all, and a Tec clip

    I like to keep my key chain items down to the absolute minimum. I don't like the jangling, the weight and the look of something attached to something else that's attached to something else and so on.
    In fact, I have multiple keys chains for multiple things; car, motorcycle, work, etc. My house keys (pictured below) are the only keys with "gear" on them, the rest are just keys.

    The paracord is sized so that when the clip is attached to my belt, the keys just dangle free inside my pocket.

    Oh I love it. I have not used it to cut a seat belt yet but, it works great on paracord!

    Can you provide some info on the clip and bead? They look great. Is the clip made from copper pipe?

    I make the beads from 1/2 copper bar stock. I bore out a .2" hole in em. I can't find copper pipe heavy enough unfortunately. The clips are hammered from solid 1/4" copper bar stock. I tried using copper pipe but the copper was too thin and bent too easily. As is, if you lean against an edge with the clip, it'll bend in slightly, but it's about 1/8th inch thick when hammered and holds its shape decently. I want to get some bronze to play with to aleviate this problem, but I need a MAPP torch first, my little butane torch won't cut it since bronze works best when hammered at a dull red

    How did you finish the end with the bead? I want to do something like this to suspend my keychain in my pocket. I was going to use a pocket clip on one side to hook on my belt) and a locking s-biner on the other end hook to my keychain. I'm still trying to figure out how to end the paracord cleanly like you did!

    Bringing back a post from a couple weeks ago: Does anyone have more details on these navy tools? Brief initial reviews seem to indicate their cost-value. I'm on an intense OPMT search (see my post here) and I haven't really been able to track these down.. I'm not fantastic with ebay but "navy" is such a common word (navy blue) that it's killing my ability to narrow down the search. I would love if it someone could post a link. Thanks!

    Try searching navy cui. That should remove the other unwanted items.

    For the price theyre not bad. There are better options out there though *cough* Atwood *cough*. I dont have an aywood but I do have a TT Keeper and the fit and finish between it and the navy cui 2001 is definitely noticeable. I don't regret dropping a few bucks on the navy, but if I could go back, I would just buy the keeper or splurge on an atwood.
