yes, this is a carabiner and no, it isn’t the kind that you will use for mountain climbing, which is why it is so attractive. the BAUHAUS Titanium Keychain / Key Carabiner is unlike no other. instead of the traditional, utilitarian design that has remain largely unchanged like, forever, the BAUHAUS is design studio Más Design’s modern iteration of the carabiner, featuring a beautiful titanium unibody construction – and that itself already warrants a mention. we wouldn’t say the old look of a regular carabiner is ‘ugly’, but just that the BAUHAUS looks way better, though we would obliged to think it is only designed for light duties and as the product name suggests, as a handy keychain and that suits us just fine. we are not going to lie to you, the two finishes offered – namely, stone-tumbled and hand brushed finish – will be susceptible to scratch, but those ‘battle scars’ will only add character to the product over time.

though, it is worthy to note that the stone-tumbled finish itself does have certain level of scratch resistant property and the hand-brushed finish version can easily be ‘renewed’ simply by hand sanding them with sandpaper and scrotch-brite. the product comes in a series of sizes and styles to suit your purpose. for example, there’s the regular key carabiner, dubbed the C-type, of varying sizes, and there is the key carabiner and bottle opener combo, known as the K-type, also available in variety of sizes. for the full list of types and sizes available, you may like to check out BAUHAUS Titanium Keychain / Key Carabiner Kickstarter page. speaking of which, you can secure yourself one of these by making a pledge of just $28 or more. scroll down for a product video, which pretty much says it all about its beauty and functionality.

  1. Why titanium? Why not magnesium, it’s lighter still, just as strong and in a emergency. With the use of a small pocket knife, just scrape off a few scrapping and you can start a fire. You can’t do that with titanium.

  2. The odd thing about magnesium is, a few scrapping will star a fire. But a larger piece, bar, or block of magnesium is almost impossible too burn, with the exception of inducing temperatures above 1,200-deg.Fahrenheit. And small cook fires very seldom get that high in temperature.

    1. really? honestly, i didn’t know that. i learn something new everyday. magnesium was the choice material for racing car’s wheels in the past, but high heat associated with racing cars tends set it on fire, well, kind of. but i guess for large pieces to catch fire, it will take a lot of heat. but isn’t it poisonous?

  3. Depends on what you consider poisonous? Everthing in large copios amounts, will kill you, including water.
    Magnesium is used in almost every kind of medications. Magnesium is mostly a stabilizing agent. Magnesium weight 1/3 as much as Aluminum. Also, if I didn’t mention it, fire in general ignites at 451-deg. Fahrenheit.

    1. then it really sounds like a choice material for part of the survival gear. the biggest problem with matchsticks today is the failing striker and if magnesiums were used, it will solve that issue.

  4. Also consider that Magnesium burns so hot, that even if you use saturated water-soaked wet wood. Magnesium will actually draw the water out of the wood, allowing it to burn more Efficiently.
