About Kabutroid and Geocaching
I have an ongoing theme for every cache I either find or create. It will contain what is known as a "Tetra Orb". This is a chainmaille 'ball', for lack of a better description, which contains 16 stainless steel 16 gauge, 3/8" rings arranged in well... what looks mostly like a ball. See either this picture, or my profile picture (or the strap of my previous hiking stick). This is of course in addition to signing the cache's logbook with my chainmaille-wrapped pen.

Inside a micro-sized cache, I'll place a tiny "Mobius Ball", containing 5 stainless steel 18 gauge, 3/16" rings with every ring going through every other ring. See either this picture or bottom-right of profile picture.

What can you use these for? Anything! Funky earrings, christmas-tree ornaments, keychains, use your imagination. I will however be leaving regular swag in caches whenever possible along with the chainmaille ball. In the offhand chance I come upon a cache incapable of fitting a the 'micromail ball', I will then leave a 'nanomail ball', made up of three 20 gauge, 3/32" rings. For a size comparison of the three primary chainmaille balls, click here.

As an added bonus, I've added several 'limited edition' chainmaille balls, which I might drop into a random geocache, or bring to a geocache event. Typically, there will only be three or less of these ever put into circulation. Thus far, we have the macromail ball, titanium minimail and nanomail balls, the rubberized balls, macromail with a twist, macro micromail ball, blackened micromail ball, micro regular ball, and the scalemail ball. More may come over time, and will thusly be listed here when they do.
