    I cannot really decide if I prefer the Micra I used to EDC or the Style CS I carry now. I love the outside knife blade on the Style, but i sometimes miss the larger screwdriver on the Micra. Also, the "bottle opener" on the Style is just ridiculous.

    ....... [​IMG] ... umm .. Is it? ..really? .. Have you used it?

    I use mine ALL the time and find it to be one of the most handy features of the Style.. and in fact one of the most used gadgets on my key chain besides my inka pen and widgy bar.

    "ridiculous" .. I think not

    Yes, since it is the one bottle opener I actually carry at all times, I use it quite often. And I still think it is really bad. It works fine as a carabiner, of course, but as a bottle opener? Ridiculous indeed.

    :iagree:

    +1 I used one while tailgating at the Lions v Packers game and found it to be frustrating until I did it correctly. When used properly it is a very handy opener even after you have opened several bottles for yourself.

    ..umm.. Well there must be. Coz I open little brown bottles of fizzy happiness every day with mine and it works perfectly...even when I'm eleventy seven % drunk and incapable of walking a straight line.

    Place LM Style bottle opener on cap

    Lift cap

    Easy peezy

    Edit to get back on topic: I seem to have a different keychain tool every other week depending on my current employer.
    Last few days it's been my Inca pen http://www.niteize.com/products/inka-pen

    Ti Peanut lighter. So cool to have fire whenever needed (especially great for birthday candles), it's beautiful design, and love that it tailstands. Awesome tool.

    My Olight I3, I love that little light! I have it in black and another one in blue. I did not need two of them, the EDC addiction needed them! ;D

    My Style CS that I added a prybar and thumbstud to. Has all the tools I need, and fits right on my keychain.

    Well it took a while, but I finally finished the prybar on it :

    Here's a view of it closed:

    The thumb stud is from an old screw. Just used a cut off wheel to cut most of it off, and inserted it into a hole I made on the knife. The prybar works well, but it's kind of a pain to get it out from it's locked position. I'll probably be substituting it with a prybar key:

    My Vic Classic! Those tweezers have been a life saver on more than one occasion.
