Aluminum Carabiner – Red
Tuff Writer makes some of the industry’s best tactical pens. Now the Arizonabased company has teamed up with D22 Manufacturing to turn its sights on carabiners. The Aluminum Carabiner is made out of, well, aluminum — 6061-T6 to be exact — and features the same precise machining and balance between form and function as the Tuff Writer pens. Also available in black blue, and purple, as well as with an aged brass frame (for $80) and a flamed titanium frame (for $120). Made in the USA.
Strong wire-gate spring that’s smooth to open and snaps shut.
Light yet durable Hybrid oval-shaped ’biner is aesthetically pleasing and works well as a keyring retainer
As a keychain accessory, it isn’t rated for weight-bearing activities.
Smaller size means its gate opening is a tad narrow.
