Tritium Keyfob / Markers / Pendants - Titanium, Stainless Steel, Aluminium and Other Metals

Tritium Keyfobs and Pendants - in Metal Housings

I seem to get a lot of interest on tritium keyfobs, so I thought I would elaborate on a few more options that are out there.  The focus of this will be tritium markers that have a metal housing.  Most are fairly expensive... I haven't actually bought any of these, so I can't provide you with a review.  Photos are from the makers' website/thread, and permission has been obtained from the makers before reproducing them.

TEC Accessories Glow Fob

Comes in aluminium and stainless steel.  It includes a glow-in-the-dark (GITD) fob.  If you buy the replacement kit, you can replace the GITD fob with a 23x3mm tritium instead.  The TEC accessories glow fob is much more affordable than the titanium tritium keyfobs.  You will have to buy your own 23x3mm tritium though

Also available:

G1K Titanium Tritium Pendants/Keyfobs

Customisable with number of slots, sides and colour of tritium.  He still is making them, contact him via cpfmarketplace

Bart TiGlow

Seems to be available.  Bart's been dealing tritium for a while now... a well respected seller!

Krypto-Lite Housings

Comes in a variety of metals; titanium, stainless steel, brass, carbon steel damascus.  You will need to buy your own 23x3mm tritium, so factor this into your costs.

I spoke to the maker, he's still making them but out of action until April.  He's got some new designs and working with some new materials too (copper, bronze, stainless damascus).  He can be contacted via cpfmarketplace.

Farid Titanium Tritium Keyring

Farid had a thread on cpfmarketplace a little while back.  I believe he also posts in britishblades forum.  He reports he is still making them and is now using 5x40mm tritium (which is larger and brighter than 3x23mm tritium).  You could try private messaging him at cpmarketplace for more information.

If you know of any other metal-housing tritium keyfobs, or if you know of any updates to the ones I have posted, leave a comment or send me an email to update this post.

UPDATE: 9/8/11
Steve Ku from cpfmarketplace is doing a run of large titanium tritium pendants.  These are quite large compared to the other offerings on this post.!%29
