The SOG KeyTron may seem like a useless tool, but its simplicity and convenience makes it one of the best EDC tools for every day use. The simple tool doesn't come with overblown accessories and instead focuses on two basic tools; a knife and a bottle opener. The tiny size may be off-putting to some, but this compact nature allows the SOG KeyTron to easily fit on any key ring with the same capability of any full sized tool. The manual folder deploys just like a full-sized counterpart and even features a secure lockback mechanism.

The SOG KeyTron features a robust stainless steel construction, and the blade is comprised of 5CR15MOV steel. When opened, the tool measures 5.3", and when closed it is just 3.5". The KeyTron weighs just 1.30 OZ and is incredibly thin to avoid an awkward keychain bulge. The key ring is easily engaged and disengaged with a button, sparing fingernails from prying open split rings.
