    So I have been using the Utili-key for the past 4 years or so. I love it, use it almost every day. The features it packs while being very compact and lightweight are so impressive that I have had to buy ~5 more to give to friends. So Since I'm new to this forum, I want to see what other little multi-tools are out there to maybe replace it.

(refunded me it wholly.. but havent bought new one yet) *glad i didnt give him my pocket knife. that he should of dived in to get it back! hahah*

    I have carried a Utili-Key on all of my key rings for over 10 years. Great little tool. It did bother me that just before I retired the FBI sent out a disguised weapon TSA terrorist bulliten that included the Utili-Key.

    I found a place a few years ago that still had a stock of the gold plated ones. I picked up a few and replaced the old stainless ones on my rings with them. I haven't found any multi tool that I would replace the Utili-Key with.

    To be clear ... the blade on the multi-tool is covered up when closed ... so I can put it on a ring without cutting my clothes and my skin?

    This thing looks cool ...


    EDIT: Oh yeah, to contribute to your thread ... here's a flash drive literally the size of a key, to go on a keychain.

    Yes, the blade is covered when closed. That flash drive key is pretty cool.

    Gerber makes the "Shard," now, which is essentially the Artifact without the gimmicky Xacto blade.

    I'm guessing that the shard would be OK to take on a plane. Does anyone know if this is definitely the case? It would be great to have something I could take anywhere at all!
    Thanks.
