    That would make an awesome keychain with some kinda sheath/case.

    Finally got this one finished. The tweezers and toothpick are also titanium. The plastic screwdriver that goes in the corkscrew was replaces with the double ended micro driver from a Leatherman in a piece of titanium carved to fit into the corkscrew.

    That's very cool. The only tool that I might question for titanium is the tweezers, as I have used them, hard at times, and titanium may be a bit soft.

    Was this a personal project, or something that was sold?

    I like that! I have some plans for a "custom" SAK myself.

    You made the liners also out of titanium I presume?

    Kind regards,

    Jos

    Yes, the liners and tweezers are 6Al4V ti so there's no issue with them being too soft. I think they work so much better than the Vic tweezers just by being stiffer and having the precise ground tip.

    This was made on consignment for a little more than a new Glock but I have a laser shop about to cut parts for me so I hope to bring that cost way down.
    Here's some much better pics that the customer took when he received it.
