    You don't see them there?

    Each key is cut with a little nub sticking up. You just slide your finger over it and each blade rolls out individually. One handed so easy it's getting addictive. The orange spacers keep the neighbor keys from coming out since the stop bar runs through them and isolates the twisting to only the key you open.

    I like this a lot. I've been toying with different options from keys riveted together, included in the LM PS4 or Style CS, but never thought of making one like this. May I borrow this, It would make a nice project. I'll use PCB instaid of G10 though. :D

    Great work, bushidomosquito - I really like this!

    This thread will be included in my signature thread when I get a bit of time. << Edit - done. >>

    Any chance you could include a picture of it next to five similar-sized keys on a typical split ring?

    That makes me so happy. Its not mine,I probably will never even see one of those, but that is an amazing piece of kit. Brought a smile to my face. Amazing work. Totally top-notch.

    I agree! Absolutely top-notch, IMO.
    I have some of bushidomosquito's fine Kydex wallets.
    And although I am not a fan of SAK's, I admire his customization of them.

    I emailed him with a very crude ,very basic idea of what I wanted....he added multiple refinements along the way.

    Frankly, I'm flabbergasted!

    I'm glad you like it. I'll be having fun fiddling with it for the rest of the weekend and then send it off to you first thing Monday. It really is fun to play with, flicking the keys out and making the Wolverine claw sound. :rofl: I should have the pivots washers broken in soon.

    Holy hell, I would like one if these were for purchase.

    That is one sick looking contraption there, I dig it to the fullest.
