    I did one very similar to that, but I made it a bit deeper for the sake of security. It takes almost the whole knife and I use the keyring as a pull to take it out. The pouch sheath makes the keyring knife 100% easier to use since its not attached to the keyring while in use. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    This one is wet molded to the knife and is quite snug yet easy to pull. It sorta snaps in and out.

    Micra. On my spare keys I have one of those nice little Bokers with thebottle opener, but those keys never go anywhere.

    Leatherman Squirt attached to a Fenix E16, although the tools are used far more than the blade. My EDC handles most cutting jobs.

    Same here.
    If I'm carrying keys, I'm sure to have at least one knife on me. Frankly, my keychain light is much more useful... and, since I don't want to deal with keys, fob, and light when cutting something, I've never put a knife there.

    Sounds like it was not a real Victorinox product. I've never heard of any instances of the scales falling off on a real one; but I have seen the Chinese copies fall apart constantly. If you buy another one from a reputable dealer and get a real one, I bet you'd be happy with it.

    Rambler is my favorite "keychain" model. In case you missed mine. Canvas micarta. Mammoth bone in resin. Blue spacers. Solid brass liners. Acid washed and stone washed tools and springs. Custom Victorinox mammoth Bone (6).jpg

    Hard to beat a 58mm Victorinox when it comes to keychain carry, IMO. Lots of different models to choose from; you're bound to find one that suits your needs. I like the Rambler.

    The only other extra I have on my keychain is a small flashlight. Currently, it's a Nitecore Tube that replaced a Fenix E01--smaller, lighter, brighter and, most importantly, micro USB rechargeable. Very handy.

    My buddy had this cool little $20 one inch blade on ball bearings. I was impressed with it when I played with it so he sent me the link to purchase one.

    I didn’t find out until later that it is a knockoff of the Curtiss ODT. I wouldn’t have purchased it if I had known it was a clone. I also wasn’t going to pay $300 for the authentic version either though.

    Serrated Ladybug when I carry a keychain knife or, on occasion, a Rambler. I went with the serrated Lady since I almost always have another, plain edge, knife on me.
