If you are looking for a titanium utility carabiner you might be interested in a new design created by Mike Bond called the Ti2 Whar-Biner, which has launched over on the Kickstarter website this week.
The Ti2 Whar-Biner has already broken its pledge goal with 31 days remaining and has been created to provide a purpose built titanium utility carabiner designed for everyday carry.
The Ti2 Whar-Biner is available in a range of different finishes to suit your needs and style and is constructed from Grade 5 titanium. Its creator Mike Bond explains a little more :
“The Ti2 Whar-Biner is a purpose built utility carabiner designed for everyday carry. We’re huge EDC/knife enthusiasts and our Whar-Biner project takes utility inspiration from the Wharncliffe/Sheepsfoot/Coping blade designs. This shape coupled with a “hollow grind” offers excellent strength for chiseling, prying and scraping.
We’ve selected Grade 5 Alloy (6Al4V) for both the frame and gate for the titanium versions because of its incredible strength characteristics. Grade 5 has double the strength of steel with a UTS (ultimate tensile strength) of 138,000psi and at half the weight.”
For more information on the new titanium utility carabiner jump over to the Kickstarter website for details and to make a pledge from $98 to own one of the first off the production line.
