    If you live near a BevMo, they carry them in the stores.

    On the very first evening it was attached to my keyring, I used a Utilikey to open beers at a party when the actual cap lifter went missing. After 18 months of not using it again, I finally detached the thing. Can't say I miss it any.

    Here is the utilikey. I found it a bit uncomfortable to use. Being compact and like a key is its' virtue.

    I love mine. Got the 8gb and haven't run out yet. The metal is tough as its been on my keyring for the past 4 months and I haven't had any problems with it.

    Nice tool, Ombudsman. Although I bet that thing tears the hell out of your pocket ...

    I purchased a few new items and I got rid of the Gerber Shard due to its awkward shape and size. I went to Urban Outfitters and picked up a old style looking key bottle opener. I haven't tested it out yet, but it feels like it has great leverage and fits perfectly in one's hands.

    I just bought it two days ago. It should be arriving this Friday. I'll take pictures of it. It'll be replacing my Screwpop Tool. The Screwpop tool is very bulky but has really good ergonomics when using the beer bottle opener and screwdriver. Hopefully this keytool will be awesome! I hated the Utili-key.

    I've been using my Keytool for about a week now. I've opened 4 different bottles with ease. I've used the tweezers successfully as well as one of the screwdriver options. I've even cut 550 paracord with the cutter (not perfect, but it worked better than I thought).

    Using all the Keytool options usually involves sitting down under good light to accomplish the task. It's not like whipping out your Leatherman and performing a task. These tool options are tiny and involve a little precision handiwork.

    Still, to have these fairly robust tools available in such a minimal footprint (it literally dissapears when wrapped around your key) it really justifies the bang-for-the-buck.

    The other issue was how clumsy and awkward is the Toolkey when you need to frequently use the key it is wrapped around. Well, it wasn't a problem at all (I had it wrapped around my P.O. Box key - which I use daily). The "slide off-use key-slide on" process went quick and becomes rote after awhile.

    All in all .... I love this thing!
