In the late 1950s, automakers used to hand out key rings as promotional items. This Kendrick Brass Key Ring is based on those designs and features a locking mechanism that was the prototype for the modern carabiner.

This key ring is purposely designed without an anti-corrosive finish, in order to allow the brass to develop a patina.Each key ring is shipped in a plastic sleeve, however it's possible some oxidation may have already occurred by the time you've received it. This is a natural characteristic of the product and does not affect its performance. We think this patina enhances the appearance of the key ring over time.
Further Reading: Candy Design & Works is a Japanese accessory company that produces key rings based on vintage designs. The simple-but-effective construction and brass composition makes these key rings a longer-lasting alternative to plastic and metal key chains.
