It's not too big, and you have the option for better steel than the bug series' 3Cr...

I had a ladybug as a keychain, and it worked fine for me. The only reason I took it off, is that I have way too many keys (work related), and also I have a knife in every pocket so...

It takes a little getting used to but i've grown to like it there. I'm pretty particular about my keys and i don't like them to be big and bulky, and i have 7 keys i carry with me so i usually only carry 1 Ladybug, but sometimes i carry my ZDP Ladybug and H1 SE hawk bill Ladybug along with it. They make a pretty versatile duo.

Look at my keys in this EDC pic. I could carry a D'fly on my keys.

Depends on how you like your keychains. I think it would be reasonable. They are lighter than most lights, SAKs, and multi tools.

@ WildernessKidd:
I found that the Ladybug Salt Hawkbill "fit" perfectly on my keychain (although I did remove it because I was afraid I would accidently scratch or damage it :o ).

@ Rwb1500:
I like your EDC pic. I'm guessing that's the Kahr CW9 (or CW40)? The CW9 is a fantastic little piece. I love mine. :)

Nope, I think that they are a perfect keychain size. I have a tan H1 LB on my keys and it is smaller than my E15 Fenix light and much smaller than my key fob...

Yes sir, part of the Kahr collection. I really like the all steel models, but sometimes they get a bit heavy.
