Sitting in a bar in Ethiopia with my Brother when he pulled out his key chain. On it was the “Swiss Key” he and I had bought two years ago at the mall. We started talking about how useful it was and we got to talking about all of the different places and different uses between the two of us.

Across the planet this thing has traveled safely on our key chain without incident with customs or security. Here are just a few of the places and a few of the uses between the both of us.
