Tuff Writer

Alu­minum Cara­biner – Red

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

As a key­chain ac­ces­sory, it isn’t rated for weight-bear­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

Smaller size means its gate open­ing is a tad nar­row.
