Looks like the are finally taking orders on the “keybrid.” It’s an interesting concept… And I think the idea works well for a supplemental key on your chain. In any case, you can get yours here.

The Neistat Brothers: Jack-Knife Hack

Read More

If you don’t watch the Neistat Brothers on HBO, you should. I can’t put my finger on it, but their homemade productions are just down right addictive. Take the above for example… They make a “Keyman” only without the Leatherman and with a Swiss Army Knife. Admittedly, their craftsmanship isn’t tops but it is the first time I’ve seen someone do this with a proper folder.

Pretty cool.
