Summary:Kong produced carabiner for Edelweiss
Description & Commentary:

Kong produced this large asymmetric D carabiner for Edelwiess in the pre-keylock era, using the classic Kong trapezoidal corners on both the basket and runner ends. It is missing the lower snap ring on the gate, which permits the locking sleeve to disengage from the threads and fall onto the hinge.
