I made the first BKE (Best Keychain Ever) key-keeper ~6 years ago and have been using one every day since. Not the same one tho: I often give the one in my pocket to a friend, then they show a friend who ends up buying one! My wife appropriated one of the first ones too, and she thinks it's great; keeps a house key on it in her purse.
I guarantee you'll like this: everyone who tries it loves it.
The one in my pocket now is ~3 years old
No more fishing in a pocket for keys. This slim key-keeper slides right into a front pocket, and hooks at the top: always in the same place ready to be easily retrieved. You'll not even notice it's there.
Made from a reclaimed East German cold-war era reclaimed military nylon and clip, USA-made 1 3/8" stainless ring, and held together with hand-stitching and 1 solid brass rivet. ~4 1/4" overall length.
Made by me in my Monrovia, CA workshop. I can make one for you with a brass rivet, leather also available.
USA insured shipping is included with purchase, 3 year warranty.
try=dig, oymb ;)
thanks :)
