    Spyderco Bug, HoneyBee, and Grasshopper are all nice for keychains. They're affordable too.

    Recently found this one, becoming a favorite keychain knife/scissors. one side can be opened for knife cutting use then open other end for scissors.

    Boker Keycom is the best I've found not too big or small good retention stays shut unless purposefully opened good blade , pocket clip , can be opened with 1 hand . Doesnt stand out too much like a knife - lots of people would see it and not auto think knife

    I like the Victorinox Classic SD for keychain usage. You get a lot of utility in a very small package, plus a basic driver, scissor and tweezer.

    Bought my girlfriend a pink KA-BAR Mini Dozier for keychain duty. Surprisingly good knife, especially for the price.



    Comes in black or blaze orange as well.

    I carry a Vic. Classic in mini keychain sheath, very handle for taking it off the keyring to use.

    I recently picked up a Douk Douk variant, L'Ecureuil (Squirrel) and remembered I have a small one which is a very strong keychain knife with a bail.

    Spyderco Ladybug is a great key chain knife . It actually feels good in the hand and cuts very well for such a small knife .

    I'd have to agree with the 58mm sak's as the ultimate keychain knife. Small enough not to be noticed, very sheeple friendly, and gives you a knife plus scissors, small screw driver, and depending on what model a phillips driver, second blade (mini champ) and some other tools in a package smaller than some companies knives only.

    Victorinox classic, rambler, manager, mini champ. All good depending on what you like.

    I carry a Vic Rambler on my keychain at the moment. I'm thinking about going back to the Vic Classic, because it's just slightly lighter, and I'm sensitive to weight on my keys.

    I own a Leatherman Micra, Squirt P2 and Squirt S2. They're all a bit heavier than I'd like on my keys. So is my Vic Minichamp. I love that knife, but don't like anything heavier than a Classic on my keychain. And I've tried small locking blades on my keys, like the Byrd Finch (Ladybug size). It's not for me.

    Spyderco LadyBug is my favorite. Here you can watch my vid in which I explain how I went about choosing and using a keychain knife:

    I have had some type of knife on my keychain since I started carrying keys. First it was a sak classic that my dad gave me, then I wanted something with bigger scissors so I switched to the leatherman micra, then I carried the cold steel mini pal for along time, then I carried just the sog micron until leatherman came out with the style cs which I carried until a few days ago when my new green sak classic came in the mail. I have been looking to lighten my keychain load for a while so we will see how this works. My tastes change quite frequently so who knows. I am thinking about pulling the trigger on the cold steel micro recon on payday so I might be changing again. Summer came early this year in TX so I am looking for ways to lighten my load. BTW, of all the above keychain knives I have gotten the most use out of the multitool variants, because I am never without a dedicated folder. The mini pal was nice for cutting open boxes as I could seperate it from the keys completely, and serrations never needed sharpening. I liked the style cs, mainly for the same reason as the mini pal...I could remove it from my keys when I needed it. The classic is a more compact tool, which is exactly what I am looking for right now.

    Gerber Artifact and a Wegner 10 SAK. I even got a little squeeze LED light and a bit of duct tape wrapped around a piece of para-cord. Figure that can handle most tasks I run into.

    Interesting choices. I may have to buy a few and see what works best for me.

    IMO the Spydie Ladybug is the all end all keychain knife I especialy like my FS H1 Ladybug with the super nonthreatining yellow FRN handles it makes for a great knife for use around "sheeple".

    $12 Walmart Gerber STL-2.0 and I love it.

    This is an old pic. Since I've added a firesteel.com steel, a section of cobra braid para cord, and a county comm mini widgy bar to the key ring.

    Spyderco manbug. Tighten the pivot so it's a bit stiff and secure and your good to go. I also had the spyderco cricket for a while which is great, but heavy. The manbug is weightless on the keychain.
