    I have shied away from keychain tools for awhile on account of not liking a bunch of stuff in my pocket. Here and there I have tried stuff, and none of it has ever stayed, except for my Fenix E01, which isn't really a tool.

    Then, the other day my buddy and I were at Gander Mountain and I saw a SwissTech Micro-Tech. Y'all probably know what they look like since they have been around forever. Literally, I only bought the thing because I had a little bit of a gear itch, and I figured 10 bucks wasn't going to break me. Funny thing is, it turns out I really like it. Doesn't add the bulk I thought it would add to my keychain, and the screwdrivers have already come in handy a few times. I have used the pliers twice, and they got the job done both times though I have to say they are a bit awkward to use. Pretty well made little tool too. I like it!

    I've got a bunch of small tools that I enjoy. My Artifact just was too uncomfortable for my pockets, so it's sitting in my organizer pouch. My small SAK is very nice to use, and is never very far. However, it's my LM Micra that hangs on my keychain every day.

    I started with a Leatherman Micra, then a Squirt S4, and now a Squirt E4, when I finally found one.

    I use a micra a good bit of the time, but since I have to fly often, I have to leave it at home. I recently picked up a couple of gerber Shards to put on the key ring when I fly. Obviously not as useful, but better than nothing. I would also consider an Atwood, but would hate to loose it to an over cautious TSA employee (likely not an argument that you are going to win).

    I've got the Micra on my keychain and use it the most. P4, SwissTool RS, and SwissCard in my EDC satchel.

    S4 and Prybaby. Why no choice for an Atwood?

    I've been EDCing the P4 and Vic Midnite MiniChamp for several years now. The MiniChamp replaced my regular Midnite Manager(?) as soon as I saw it in the store. I then passed the MiniManager onto my wife. When I lost my original red Midnite MiniChamp a couple years ago I immediately bought two of the translucent red ones off ebay, one for EDC and one as backup. Great combo with the P4. I've both assembled and disassembled home office furniture with just those two tools.
    I don't EDC all of these at the same time. I rotate the Spyderco Dragonfly and Caly3.

    I voted for the LMP4, the knife can do most things that the micra's scissors can, but those little pliers are amazing.

    Don't have one now, but a Pockettool X Pirahna is in route. Looks pretty handy.

    I've used my micra for the last 10 years. I recently got a gerber artifact and have been using that quite a bit also.

    i love my leatherman micra but always have my vic soldier on hand as the blade is a bit small to be practical!
