While many wouldn't agree, it cannot be denied that the need for a knife can arise at any time. Whether you're at home, traveling, or going on an outdoor adventure, the humble knife can prove to be vital and useful in a number of situations (you should not have to watch Expendables, 24, or The Hunted to figure this out!). A large number of people still look at the knife as only a weapon. But it was the first tool man ever invented.
From cutting logs to make a fire to hunting animals for food, the earliest humans did everything with these sharp tools that they made out of rocks and stones. These days, knives come in various forms. There are large knives for making a mincemeat and smaller ones for self-defense. You can even get knives in the form of a keychain. Though small and easy to conceal, they are highly useful.
Can they stand up against the bigger knives? Probably not, but they are useful for several purposes, from cutting open a package to removing tags from new clothing, or defending yourself against wild cats. It weighs a little more than a keychain and is a versatile tool to keep in your pocket.
A keychain knife is meant to look like just another set of keys in your pocket. Knife enthusiasts would love to carry their everyday carry knives everywhere, but such a prospect is highly impractical. Thankfully, technology had advanced far enough to let you carry a knife the size of a keychain. Cool!
These knives are so shockingly small that first-timers may wonder if they are of any use at all. You’ll be surprised that these knives often offer better value compared to their bigger counterparts.
There are various types of keychain knives available today. It might seem like an easy task to buy a keychain knife because they cost so little, but some of them can be frustrating to use and the bad ones can even slice off the top of your finger. Therefore, whether you buy a keychain knife online or from a store, several factors must be considered before purchase, from the blade to size, to the design and cost.
Size: A keychain knife should be no bigger or heavier than a set of keys. In fact, it is meant to be carried inside a pocket or a purse, disguised as a keychain. The size and weight of the knife are one of the first things to consider. What size will comfortably fit in your pocket or purse?
The ideal weight shouldn’t be more than three ounces, and no more than four or five inches when open. Keychain knives are capable of a lot, so you can safely by a lightweight one without worrying about functionality.
Blade: The ideal blade length of keychain knives is between one and two inches. Most keychain knives are between 0.5 and 0.7 inches when closed, and when open, the blade extends another inch or so. The blade is usually made of steel, most common being AUS 8A, 3CR13, and 420C stainless steel.
The handle is usually made from glass-filled nylon for maximum durability and ease of use. Since a keychain knife is tiny, the easiest blade shape to achieve is the drop point, although there are other shapes too, such as a serrated blade. All these factors come together to make an ideal keychain knife.
Attachments: Keychain knives especially the branded ones usually come with a lot of attachments. Most knives come with a keyring and bottle opener, but good ones also come with a nail filer, scissors, screwdriver, toothpick, and tweezers. Yes, when you buy a good keychain knife, you get to carry a multi-utility tool with you all the time. Whether you need to uncork a bottle or need a pair of scissors urgently, having a multipurpose keychain chain is a wise idea.
