Needs More keychain reviews. And deals. The holidays approach. I found this one in my junk box with other trinkets/tools that I've come across over the years. Probably from SHOT, NRA, MDM or AUSA. It's a keychain, small blade and light - the light being good enough to see the keyhole or to find something by the door if you dropped it. I won't be recommending it for signaling a search party in the jungle. Distributed by Buck Knives.

Make sure you elect the Nichia emitter option and use coupon code NichiaNT to get price down to $16.99. Order now and you should be safe for the holidays. Unless you or your gift recipient celebrates Hanukkah, which begins 12/12/17. That might be cutting it a little close. Plan on giving them chocolate gelt for the first seven nights and finish off with this little miracle of light. :wink:

My father still provides a good workout for his coonhounds on a cold, dark night, despite the nearly ziltch he can get from fur these days. My fun with the keychain spotlight in an earlier post was before I actually found one that could clip to his keys and fit nicely in a shirt pocket. 500 Lumens

Honestly, how do your keychains not get horribly bulky? I dump the keys for all but my most typical vehicle to try to keep the size down so it fits in my pockets well. Went with a penlight instead, which gets carried alongside a pen.

Ha, just read this. Yes.
I carry a bag mostly and the keys slip into it but your point is most valid.

My Nitecore TIP CRI just showed up yesterday. Almost forgot I ordered it. Almost 8 weeks since order. Sheesh. Anyway looks like a cool light haven't taken it out in the dark yet. Especially for $17. I'll clip it to the EDC backpack and see how it does.
