Kershaw’s compact multitool combines eight useful functions in one keychain tool: a bottle opener, flathead and Philips screwdriver tips, wire scraper, a pry bar, and three hex head drivers. It’s made from sturdy 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a textured glass-filled nylon grip.
THE BEST Keychain
Designed by tool and knife expert Jesper Voxnaes for CRKT, the Pryma combines a pry bar, bottle opener, wrench, glass breaker, and multi-wrench on a single, ultracompact gadget. It’s made from stainless steel with a black stonewashed finish, and has a spring-loaded carabiner clip for carrying versatility.
Malboro & Kane has updated their tiny Claw keychain multitool. Made from Grade 5 titanium and measuring less than 2″ long, the tool can open bottles and can lids, cut through packing tape, pull staples, and turn screws. It also has 1/4″ and 1/6″ hex drivers built into its handle this time.
EDC Apparatus makes all kinds of great clips, belt loop, and keychain accessories. This little guy is a miniature engine piston with a face cut into it, perfect for lovers of cars, motorcycles, skulls, or all three. It’s made from 6061 aluminum and can be outfitted with a carabiner clip in stainless steel or titanium for a small upcharge.
An inexpensive, yet versatile little tool, Kershaw’s PT-1 packs a flathead screwdriver, pry bar, and bottle opener on your keychain. It’s made from durable 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a bead-blasted finish, and has a textured glass-filled nylon handle for grip.
Fans of the classic Volkswagen Beetle will want to grab Troika’s officially-licensed mini version. The shiny chrome-plated cast metal object perfectly captures the iconic bubble style of a 1964 bug, and its headlights double as an LED flashlight. Measures 0.71″ x 2.17″ x 0.59″.
While its extensive list of functions basically boil down to a flashlight and flat blade variants, the HUNT23 still looks like a great keychain addition. Measuring just 34mm (~1.34″) long and weighing only 0.24 oz., this tiny titanium tool is waterproof, and can be had with either a 100 lumen white light or a UV LED.
