    Anyone carry or know of any real micro keychain tools. I'm thinking like Atwood Ti Ring, JDR Thumbnail, Raidops Skull Jr. stuff like that.

    I carry a Veritas Pocket Screwdriver. Just used it to put new plates on my car.

    +1 on the mini 4 way. not very comfortable, but a very good size+weight / usefullness ratio!

    i think that the spyderco ladybug or the byrd finch are both great for a light (not those giant chains that some carry) keychain carry. the finch is cheaper since the steel is "infirior" to the ladybug, but i don't think that it makes such a difference. the ladybug is ~25$, and the finch is ~15$.

    p.s: the raid-ops skull is a tool much like my shoe-laces are tactical de-animation choking strings... ;-)

    Ryan do you have Swiss Army's rescue removable glass breaker/screwdriver/bottle opener/wire stripper that goes with the Victorinoz Rescue? You can buy them seperately too, and they're a great micro tool.

    I don't see how you could use the glass breaker by itself. There isn't a safe surface to put against your hand when striking.

    Also, CountryComm has the "Pico" wedgie bar, as well as larger sizes. Phillips and flat tip screwdrivers in the same of key rings.

    Ebay has a multitude of goofy little keyring tools.

    AG Russell has a steel "thumbnail".

    Anything in particular you're look for?

    i can highly recommend the Boker Keycom for a blade.

    i could (probably) go the rest of my life w/ just this mini framelock knife for EDC.

    (but the rest of my rotation would never forgive me.)

    +1 on the Boker Keycom. So easy to carry I lately forget it is there. Tiny but sharp and solid.

    Get a Leatherman Micra. I also carry a CountyComm AAA light (is that small enough for you?). A Streamlight Nano is tiny and bright, but those coin cells that power it don't last too long. Get a PicoPen or Rothrandir's larger pen from EDCF store. Love my PicoPen. I also have a stainless ITP AEOS (forget the model) that uses CR123s and has a keychain attachment claw. Very bright. My CountComm AAA is smaller, though.

    I really like Raker's stuff he's making me one of his Arrowheads right now. How big is the mini rhinopry exactly?

    a little under 2" perfect keychain size. get the swiss cheese version, you don't even know it's there. I made the mistake with my last order of getting the full sized ones, too long for keychain carry. The mini's are awesome.
