First introduced in 1996, the Leatherman Micra finds its way trending back up the charts. Despite its age the Micra still holds up today as an invaluable keychain tool thanks to its useful complement of tools, scissors-based butterfly design, and sturdy construction all in a compact package. 

Most other butterfly-style multi-tools sized for your keychain feature a set of pliers as their main tool, but not everyone can get much use out of pliers at that size. Scissors, however, come in handy for all sorts of daily cutting tasks in a more discreet way than pulling out your dedicated EDC blade. With that said, the Micra still comes equipped with a small penknife, a nail file and cleaning tool, screwdrivers, a bottle opener, a ruler, and even a set of tweezers. 

And like all Leatherman tools, the Micra is made in the USA and backed by a 25-year limited lifetime warranty. Grab one in your favorite of 6 color options at the link below.

These retail for around $30 new, but if you are cash strapped you can pick one up used on eBay for around $10 shipped. A lot of TSA confiscated Micras (and SAKs) end up on eBay, for example.

Also these things are easy to mod. So if you want to remove or add an item, buying a cheap used one is a safe way to go. I took a Dremel to some keys, and swapped them into an old Micra, replacing some of the tools I didn't use. I don't carry that much anymore, but it was a neat and easy project.
