Are you an EDC (Everyday Carry) junkie who is always on the lookout for cool new keychain tools, flashlights, pocket knives and storage gadgets? I am That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to take a look at the Mini Cash-Can and Toothpick Case from Sunshine Products USA. Go ahead and get out your credit card now, you’ll be needing it in a few minutes.
I was sent three different products, the Mini Cash-Can, Mini Cash-Can II and a Toothpick Case. Let’s first take a look at the Mini Cash-Can.
The only difference between the Mini Cash-Can and Cash-Can II is size. The Cash-Can is 1 1/2″ inches long and can hold one bill. The Cash-Can II is 2 inches long and can hold two bills. Both are available in your choice of Brass, Copper or Aluminum.
You can see the Aluminum Mini Cash-Can II in the image above (click it to see a larger view). You’ll notice the wonderful engraving of The Gadgeteer logo, which I just love. You can opt for your own engraving for an additional charge ($15-$20).
The Cash-Can is comprised of two parts. The outside housing and an interior spindle. The parts are machined from a single bar of material. In the image above, you can see the seam at the bottom…
…and around the keychain eyelet.
When I first tried to open the Cash-Can, I stumped for a few seconds, till I figured out that you have to pop out the spindle.
This is done by removing the keychain split ring and pressing the spindle top on a hard surface.
With some pressure, the spindle pops out of the bottom of the Cash-Can.
Bills can be folded and wrapped around the spindle.
The top and bottom of the spindle have a rubber O ring, that will make the interior of the Cash-Can waterproof. There’s also no worry that the Cash-Can will open accidentally, as long as you keep it on a keyring.
Mini Cash-Cans are a handy way to carry some extra money with you on your keychain. Always have an extra $20 with you at all times.
Mini Cash-Can – $25.00
Mini Cash-Can II – $35.00
The Toothpick case holds… toothpicks It can also hold cash, small pills etc. It’s significantly larger than the Cash-Cans, at 2 7/8 inches long.
I was sent the Stainless Steel version, but it is also available in a two-tone Copper and Brass version. Look at that lovely engraving (click the image to see a larger version). This case is available with a keychain cap or a plain cap.
Both are threaded caps. An O ring on the case keeps the contents dry.
Toothpick Case – $47.00
I love all these little cases because they are unique and useful. Any of them would make a great gift for your favorite gear head.
