The Anso Knives Carabiner V3 is the everyday carabiner elevated. This limited edition Carabiner V3 is milled from solid brass stock and features an intricate custom engraving and is the latest creation from the famed workshop of Danish custom knife maker, Jens Anso.
The solid brass body gives the Carabiner V3 a pleasantly authoritative heft and balance and features a built-in bottle opener and mini prybar/flathead screwdriver. These additional features are elegantly integrated and do not get in the way of the original function of the carabiner.
It uses a custom stainless steel spring gate for maximum retention, and the bend at the opening end nests into a notch cut into the inner edge, stopping accidental opening. This is just another example of the attention to detail that goes into the design and craftsmanship of the Carabiner V3.
The finishing and machining are perfect, as expected, with a deep jimping at the spine for grip and the textured surface which also adds to the overall tactility and feel. All edges are nicely chamfered, with holes milled into the body to lighten the weight. As the king of carabiners, this limited edition Anso Carabiner V3 certainly lives up to its mantle.
