Best Keychain material

  1. I was wondering what is the best material to make a keychain, besides any metals (I don't want it getting too expensive).

    Also how strong are each of the materials? I know they are usually printed hollow, so this kind of scares me when thinking about keychains.

    Hi There,

    For a keychain I would use the dyed white strong and flexible (Black strong flexible) as white would get grubby if you do not seal it somehow.

    Also I would not make it hollow but 2 to 3mm thick should be strong enough.

    Anyone else have experience with keychains?

    I know the sandstone ones that were included in a couple of my orders didn't last too long in my pocket. I wouldn't feel too comfortable carrying anything but stainless in my pocket, but that goes with every day objects, Other than my wallet everything is metal or it doesn't last too long. (Even my poor old wallet could use replacing)
