J.L. Lawson & Co. “M II – Unlimited” Opener/Shackle
From a family of trained machinists spanning three generations, J.L. Lawson & Co. brings forth its second attempt at creating the popular ‘Minimalist key shackle,’ this time dubbing it the M II – Unlimited. Looking to the ubiquitous C-clamp tool as inspiration just as the first iteration did, this imaginative key ring is designed with a steel pin that screws open and close securing your keys with a refined masculinity that rivals the trendy D-rings of yesteryear. Where the Californian brand aimed to better its inventive design was through the addition of a handy bottle opener that will surely be a conversational piece during happy hour. American-made from hand-rolled steel, the M II is given a black patina finish and a coating of metal oil and wax to prevent corrosion, although it’ll still show signs of wear over time. The M II – Unlimited can be purchased and personalized here with a price tag that starts at $42 USD.
