    Great idea with the tweezers, toothpick, pen inside the paracord. I like the whole setup! :cool:

    How do you keep the things from falling out of the paracord?

    You can find them on his website, I've also seen an official dealer on eBay.

    Thank you sir. The Pete Gray trit lantern just arrived today. Lost my previous TEC lantern to a keychain malfunction/bouncy house incident lol.

    Just wanted to show off my new key chain... It's a project off kickstarter called the hooky. It's made to be a spinable key holder. It's solid brass and has a coin slot screwdriver on the end too.

    I got it direct from Raven Workshop. He made a couple of protos for me. Email him, maybe he'll make more.

    A lot of great looking setups!

    I don't know how fancy mine is... But I like it.

    E05, Vic Safety Pin, Nitecore Double Barrel, Titanium 'modded' pry/popper, SS sliver grippers, (NEW! to replace old one... Can't tell at all, lol) Ti split ring, House key (minimalized) and truck key (I keep this one fat/full because I use it all day, every day, in and out of the vehicle. Makes sense to have a good area to 'grip')

    I like it, too. ;) Would add a small blade or multitool though...

    thanks!

    I've considered a few items for a blade - that little baby spyderco looks good. I've also considered a mini alox.

    BUT - big problem - my keys are soaked in sweat, rain, dirt, etc all day, most of the week. I'm afraid of putting something that'll rust (I loathe rust) on my keys (like a blade).

    This 'rust' issue, along with weight, and the lack of 'true' function has kept a small MT off of my keys. I always need something more substantial than, say, LM PS or LM PS4.

    Does anyone have that baby Spydie or an Vic alox that has seen LOTS of sweat and salt, and not rusted? I cannot buy / try one until I hear some feedback....

    ManVsLawn I guess you've tried a Spydie Salt?

    Yes, a Ladybug Salt for example. Other than that my Vics did never ever show any signs of rust, doesn´t matter where I took and used them for.

    I'm so particular. And I am happy with the setup... ack! I don't think the Ladybug is small enough. I love the Salt line, carry a tasman serrated and it gets a workout. It would have to be 'honeybee' sized.

    I like the idea of a Alox Classic....Black.... Mainly for the scissors....

    But then I just don't ever find a use for a blade that small!

    Hrmmm. I'll think on it. I appreciate the suggestions, but I'd probably be back to this before the end of the week with a few split rings in need or replacing. :furious:

    I'm very happy with a Rambler. Just the useful tools and nothing I don't need. I don't normally pocket-carry any bigger knife (got it in my backpack, usually), so I use the rambler blade for the small stuff it can manage. Packages, etc. Same with the scissors and the small stuff, manicure, ... The 2 small drivers have come useful on many occasions too, especially the phillips (this size is rare except for a dedicated bit driver), but the flat one too.

    I also don't remember ever seeing a rusty SAK, though I haven't ever put them though rough conditions myself. I'm quite curious if they would stand up to the test though, how about you try it? ;)
