6 Keychain Knives For Travel EDC /// VINJABONDThe following knives are recommended for travel because of their short blade length, concealability, ease of carry and relatively innocuous appearance.

*6 Keychain Knives For Travel EDC:

Cold Steel Recon 1 Micro Tanto Knife


Micro Recon 1 Knife //

Made by Cold Steel, this is probably the smallest yet functional tactical knife available. The ergonomics, lock type and grip makes it a viable self-defense knife despite it’s 2 inch blade. One of my personal favorite knives in any category – meaning it’s part of my EDC more than any other bladed tool and the most used.

PECK EDC Knife


PECK EDC Knife //

Made by Columbia River Knife & Tool, this is one of the most minimal and lightweight folding knives around. Many owners use these as a money clip but I purchased it for its obviously unique design. It may look peculiar, but it’s a great keychain knife for moderate use.

FRS Combo Knife


SaberCut Knife //

Made by UST, these dual bladed tools are popular additions to small survival kits. It’s like a stripped down Swiss Army Knife that only has a razor and saw. For the price, you get what you pay for, but it is quite useful for what it’s for – not everyday use but for emergency situations.

GDC Zip Blade


GDC Zip Blade //

Made by Gerber, this folding knife may be the smallest production model available. The tiny .68-inch blade is ridiculously short but cuts just fine for certain jobs. This sacrifice in size makes it more portable than any other knife. The construction is clever and rock solid for such a sized tool.

Chive Knife


Chive Knife //

Made by Kershaw, these may seem too pretty to be considered a “keychain knife” but its stainless steel scales and tight build makes it tough and elegant. The assisted opening mechanism makes it effortless and a joy to deploy the blade. Designed by Ken Onion and assembled in the USA.

Utili-Key Knife


Utili-Key Knife //

Made by Swiss+Tech, this keychain knife is actually a multi-tool with an uncanny resemblance to an actual key. Other than a partially serrated knife, it has 5 other tools built in. It’s extremely well built and rugged for such a simple and thin tool. Read the full review here.
