Pocket-Knife/key-holder

Saw this DIY - instructables.com/id/Folding-Key-Chain/ for a folding key holder last week, and decided to make one myself. This guy used an existing multi tool for the project. I decided to build it from scratch with wood or metal i could find scrounge up from somewhere. so decided to get in touch with by product designer buddies KT and Hidish. We decided to get together at a workshop belonging to Hidish's design studio Bent .. spent about half a day at it.. all the while learning useful stuff like how to Tap the threads in a metal tube etc..

we decided to put screws on either end so that i can open this thing up later and add or remove more keys, knife blades or tools. Am quite happy with the results. Wrapped it in some elastic chord i found lying around at home.. will find something more suitable later(maybe leather or something like that).








have only put 3 keys for now.. will add some screwdrivers, or other odds and ends on the opposite side later.


here are some detailed instructions


We plan on getting together again and work on other more advanced projects.. lets see how it goes

was originally planning to put my bike key.. but we realised it is not long enough.. so won't reach all the way into the keyhole with this attached.. my bike key goes under the petrol tank :(will try getting a extra long duplicate key made, will be able to use it then.car key was too fat.. and has a security dongle .. so too bulky

Oh , I thought about the length . My suggestion is making a simple single key holder for bike separated from the main key-holder and u can connect both of them as a combo set . But It sounds stupid ... hahaha . Making a key-holder for 1 key , waste your time . Just use the original with some tiny colorful bell attached . hahah

Following my own analysis, millions of persons on our planet are in debt because of stupid personal loans from various creditors. Thus, there is good possibilities to get into bankruptcy in all countries.
