I am profoundly dissatisfied with my knife

    I currently have a little folder on my keychain that is going blunt and the little chain does not stay on 5ight any more. What's a good keychain knife? I was thinking of a tiny Swiss army knife.

    Whats the point of a keychain knife? is it a backup to a main pocket knife/multitool?

    It's always on me without fail if I leave the house, since it is attached to my keys. I have a Leatherman that I keep in my glove box. There are 100000000 different situations where a knife is useful but I've only needed a multitool in niche situations because I'm not a labourer or whatever NB so it makes sense to just keep a light cutting implement on my keys.

    Swiss army is a solid brand. I've had one for the last 15 years and will probably be using it for many years to come. They have a good policy on replacing them too iirc. Similar to Leatherman.

    considering getting one of these; if customs steals it it's not that expensive

    Yeah I was considering the SD ones again, I have had 2 that I've lost because I forgot to take them off my keychain before going to the airport, TSA told me I could ship it home but I literally do not give the shots necessary to go through that so I just threw them away and eventually got the one I have, a cheap little folder from Amazon that I wouldn't mind throwing away again... Lol. Now I have a separate set of travel keys I take so no need to worry about losing the stuff on my normal keychain.

    looks too big for a keychain knife though I didn't see the length anywhere

    also hawkbill blades are a bitch to sharpen

    I have a carbon steal one with a pointy tip to pop my window if for some reason my car ends up in water or to cut my seatbelt if it gets jammed in a car crash and or car bursting into flames.

    Just FYI there's actually multiple brands that produce Swiss army knives, it's not a brand in itself AFAIK. The most famous and original one that created the SAK is Victorinox, who sell "Genuine SAK" brand, Wenger sells "Original SAK" brand. Be sure if you get a SAK that it's from a good brand because many shitty brands try to take advantage of the fact that Swiss Army is famous in the way a brand is due to the quality of the associates products, but anyone can call their knife a Swiss Army knife. I ended up buying a Victorinox.

    I’ve been carrying byrd knives for a few years now. They are made by spyderco. Cheaper,but still a good blade and handle. Don’t worry as much about losing it as much as my spyderco.
    I don’t know if they make a key chain version,but that’s not a proper knife.

    It is definitely too big for a keychain, but it is my most used knife.
