    It's great when someone needs something and you have it on your EDC. It's awkward when you have to snap a picture of it.

    Are you gonna brand the cattle or yourself? :giggle:

    I'm only half joking because scarification is really catching on in the mainstream. It used to be rather underground, due to questionable legality

    Those 'aviation cable' key loops will unscrew themselves and open without warning, usually in the worst possible place and at the worst possible time.

    Take a look 'Lucky Line' key cables - either the Flex-o-Loc (my favorite) or the Twisty. They will not open unless you want them to open (and the Twisty may require a couple of tries even then).

    Swift - a quick dab of loctite or super glue has been used to secure those cable wires.

    That's a fair point, but only helps if you don't need to take stuff on and off of the keyring.

    That lighter is awesome … especially given it's provenance … and I get bonus points for using "provenance" in a sentence!

    That I should've mentioned :giggle:

    And fair point.


    I dunno what all the fuss is over split rings. I truly enjoy the security of a nice split ring on my truck key.

    Purple lok-tite comes apart pretty easily with a pair of pliers.

    Use some hot wax to seal them and they'll come apart even easier than that.

    Do not think about hot wax and the branding iron... No.

    I said, NO!

    Can't always teach old dogs new tricks but they still know how to bite.

    I already had one pull apart because only a small crimp holds the head on.
    I just ordered one of each to give a try. Thank you.

    Another good place to find them might be at your local locksmith. Mine has a good variety of Lucky Line products.

    Office carry. My son gave me the orange China knife so it makes in to rotation occasionally.
