We are very happy to launch the Craighill Helix Ti Keyring - it's great working with such talented & good people at Craigill. Our Craighill Ti products were inspired by the outdoor ultralight community meets edc commuter. Making really beautiful functional lightweight products for multiple everyday pocket carry purposes.

How is this one different from the one sold on their official site? It's also a few bucks cheaper there. I don't understand why this thing is $35, it looks nice but it's not worth more than $5. If this was made out of gold or good plated sure then I'd pay $35. Serious question.

...and one ring to bind them. I paid $0.35 cents at my favorite key shop for the large one holding the peripheral stuff. The smaller ones were $0.25. I have NEVER had a split ring spill its contents all over me, my pockets, or a dark street. When I was working regularly, This and several other split rings were held together with a Leatherman carabiner. In case you are wondering, the knife is a Spyderco Manbug in ZDP-189.

I have to admit that I was embarrassed about the picture of my knife.

imho: this looks really, really cool! but also so impractical... i'll stick with my old good exotac freekey: four years in use and i'm still loving the hell out of it. also, it cost me around 1/3 of this here on (mass)drop.

I really wish those had an Allen hex indent in the ends and then I could blue loctite the threads. Would make it infinitely more secure.

If I put this keyring in my pocket along with my phone, will it scratch the phone's screen because it's titanium?

Then you were too stupid to participate in class to begin with. The door's over there.

I didn't say anything could scratch anything and you know it, we aren't talking about cheese and steel we're talking about materials much closer to one another in hardness, and honestly, if you're saying you can't scratch your aluminum laptop with a closed pen then you're just being ridiculous. Or glass with titanium, which was the point of this conversation, and you admitted in your very first response to me that my statement which you've been arguing against this whole time is true, you just said it wasn't possible to generate that much velocity and impact in a pocket, which I think you should give some more thought to because you are completely wrong, and stop making ridiculous examples when your first one, an aluminum sheet and abs plastic, is so obviously doable. You're the one who brought up anodization after the fact, not sure what hat you were pulling that out of, but I'm assuming you realized what a stupid example you gave that totally proved my point so you changed it... So then you go to cheese and a knife LOL. If you can't win the argument with logic then baffle them with BS right? Instead of getting all technical like you enjoy so much, I'm gonna revert to my original statement, you can scratch a harder material with a softer one, all it takes is a little motion, impact, etc, like going up and down stairs with them both in the same pocket, crashing into one anther over and over again. Unless it's cheese, you can't hardly scratch cheese. And dude, wash your clothes already, get that sand out of your pocket LoL

Wondering if this is _because_ it is titanium. My Citizen titanium watch band uses steel bushings for the pins that hold the links in place. The titanium on its own isn't compressible enough to hold them snugly. To me, being a little bit of a titanium junkie, this sounds worth it. It _is_ an expensive metal, and hard to work with. Lightweight! Probably either finish is ion plated - I wouldn't be sure of the Vickers hardness on that, but my Galaxy is in a leather wallet, so no worry there. Pocket, table - safe regardless. Loctite isn't a bad idea. Blue (?) with medium hold can be broken easily if need be, and then done again, if the titanium on titanium threading doesn't hold for you. Cheaper than machining it, maybe with a steel or brass insert inside the knurled knob. Don't think a set screw is needed. Either way, the price would go from "hmmm..." to "Whoa Nelly!" Maybe _change_ the knob to brass; hmmm... I'd stick with some Loctite!

I bought one with black finish - the natural isn't available right now - and am not having any issue with it unscrewing itself. It is reasonably difficult to unscrew, once I've snugged the knurled nut on. Maybe you got a bad example. Maybe the natural finish version is different. I'd ask that it be replaced, if I were you.

Have had these and the money clip for a month or so. Unfortunately I've mostly been home this whole time, so not a lot of anecdotal out-in-the-wild observation. However, I see concerns in the thread about this being worse than a standard keyring, and questioning the value of this item. Well. This is for the folks who would invest in little things like these that might bring a smile to your face, knowing you have something that is unique (or at least, different from most others). Does that make it better of more efficient than other, simpler, and very much cheaper alternatives? No. But it's delightful. :) Do you need a pair of jeans made out of raw unsanforized denim? Doesn't a $20 pair from a store brand serve the same purpose? The same can be said of watches, shoes, clothes... almost anything. Products like these are not for everybody, they're for a niche. But if you're in that niche that enjoys items not only for the added functionality but also the joy of owning something unique, you might enjoy this. You don't find many keyrings that you can unscrew to put keys in--come on! :) (If it wasn't clear--yes I'm recommending you to buy this with the caveat that it is not any more functional than a standard keyring, unless you use "delight" as a function of a keyring--which some people might)

I truly enjoyed your way of describing this and other items that are not exactly "necessary." You are quite correct about these type of products in that the true "value" of them beyond what a more common variation of the same type of item is in the joy and delight one gets from them. However, even a product that has value measured in "delight" should be sturdy enough to withstand a certain amount of use. One of the comments I saw above yours was someone saying that they have this key ring and that they do not recommend it as the knurled end piece comes loose (though I could attribute that to a small list of reasons that are not directly connected to the quality of the item as a whole... one being that the guy may have one with the threaded hole may be ever-so-slightly too big for the post it screws onto... that sort of thing can and does happen even with great quality control from all manner of companies). I also saw someone that suggested the end should have an Allen key head so that they could put a little Loctite on the threads for added security (though, to me the Loctite would only make sense if you rarely if ever have need to add or remove keys...plus you could use the Loctite even without an Allen key head but, I get that it would make it easier to remove with the Loctite). For those that think this is just too expensive for what it is, don't buy it! For the record, I am among those that finds the price kind of outrageous. However, I don't plan to buy one nor do I have a desire to. I did become curious about Keysmart and Key-Bar products a while back. As with this item, the price was just too high for my budget. However, I found similar items that cost around $5 that let me test out the concept of those products. They may not be as durable as Key-Bar which seems large enough that you could kill a bear with it if you had to but, I like them. Would I have liked Key-Bar more? Perhaps. But I know it would not have brought me enough joy and delight to make it worth the higher price.

Very well put down. The only thing I personally am missing is that I can see an intersection between these two worlds. Speaking generally, as I cannot for this particular item, I can pay a premium for unique items, but they must not function worse than the regular, decades or centuries of use proved, ones.
