A Legendary History for a Legendary ProductForged deep in a cave by the Viking leader Sweyn Forkbeard for his relentless but futile attempt to conquer England. (Yes he is a real viking.) Once while raiding a quaint English village he accidentally left a crate of carabiners. Although the utensils sat in the rain for centuries they did not succumb to rust, and even still closed with a snap.
Down the road the English adopted this wonderful piece of equipment when fortune struck yet again another historical figure…the infamous ladies man Sir Lancelot. Although King Arthur may have lost Guinevere to his right hand man, Lancelot, he won the timeless apparatus. It was during this time he declared, “Though I hath lost mine love, I hath gained thy noble implement which rivals Excalibur.” Not far down the road it was used to tow ships when exploring the Americas. This is because they could bear the burden of a pile of would smashing into the Atlantic waves.
Unbeknownst to most historians the true goal of the Boston Tea Party was to plunder this mighty piece of equipment from the British. George Washington commissioned his black smith to replicate such a tool for the war effort. With such splendorous colors they showed the standing of America’s first officers. After the war had ended and America began to expand from sea to shining sea the Black Diamond Hotwire carabiner was gifted to Lewis and Clarke but utilized by Sacagawea. After all, they needed aid when going over the Rockies. But then they went north. And I mean really far North. Like way north. Straight up Denali to spy on Russia. (Fun fact this was the true beginning of the Cold War because it’s dang Cold up there spying at 20,308.)
The carabiner was used to caress the keys to the infamous red button during the Cold War. Thankfully this was the most boring era of the Hotwire carabiner because it sat around some desk jockey’s waist. Little did people know this would soon become trendy. trendier than the lanyard. So don’t waist the potential of this utensil by using it solely for your keys, even though it can handle the job, because it can handle so much more weight.
DISCLAIMER: This is truly a good product. Yes I blew smoke but I also told the truth in this review. It is pretty darn tough, won’t rust, withstands the elements as history has proven (with the consistent Black Diamond recalls), and lets be honest it was some pretty wicked colors. No I did not climb Denali, but I do use it for climbing, ice and rock.
