I was attracted to these items because they work well and are extremely robust in both design and function. I consider this to be a “minimalist” carry although each individual items is quite beefy and fills the hand nicely.
I’ll also be adding smaller backups to my keychain and I’ve detailed those future additions below.
Editor’s Note: I totally agree with your assessment that this carry is minimal, but beefy in execution and design. The SKX007 is a great offering from Seiko, the Para 2 is a super solid EDC blade, and the Tactical Clicky is feature-packed and pretty much bombproof. I appreciate the durability, robustness and quality over quantity themes in this EDC. Your keyring remains minimal as well, and of the gear options you’ve listed as your backups they make excellent complements to your current carry. I’m curious as to how you keep a wallet or how you attach/pocket your keys, but with such few items and access to pocket clips I imagine you handle it just fine. Keep it up and thanks for sharing.
All too often, pocket multitools either try to do way too much or simply not enough to justify carrying one. There's the 25-in-1 tool without a single usable feature, or the overbuilt hunk of metal that only opens bottles. But BIGiDESIGN's new Kickstarter project, the Titanium Pocket Tool (TPT), shows plenty of promise. It balances size, functionality, and aesthetics often sacrificed for an exhausting list of features.
The TPT's small enough for keychain or coin pocket carry, yet big enough to give you a solid grip on it. Each tool packs in 15 wrench sizes, a bottle opener, a hex bit driver, and a flathead screwdriver/pry bar—all while maintaining excellent ergonomics. A hidden magnet in its central slot holds two types of inserts in place. You can configure the TPT with a double-sided, finger-safe box opener/camping fork or a standard utility blade.
Best of all, the TPT's grade 5 titanium construction allows it to stay small, rigid, and durable enough for daily use while carrying as slim as just a pair of house keys. See the Titanium Pocket Tool's unique design in action and pledge for your own on Kickstarter.
