    I was looking for some Titanium split rings to compliment all the other titanium :censored: on my keychain, lol. They have a few different sellers on amazon, but all of them have reviews that either mention that they might not even be titanium at all (due to their weight) or that they bend/warp too easily and can be damaged when adding large keys.
    Where is the best place to buy solid titanium split rings? I need one large 32mm one to use as my key ring and then a few smaller (between 20-25mm) ones to attach edc items, and then some really small 12mm ones as well.

    Thanks in advance

    I just want to guarantee I'm buying legit titanium ones, and not stainless steal ones that are listed as titanium, or a titanium/steel combination

    I tried Ti split rings... once. I can confirm that they are easily deformed when trying to get them through something large-ish.

    Some sellers try to confuse things by using the word "titanium" as a color. If they have both the word titanium and steel in the product description, they are steel.

    That's how you know they're titanium! :p

    Titanium is non-magnetic and lighter weight than steel, but it is not as strong and certainly doesn't have steel's elasticity or resistance to inelastic deformation.

    Titanium as a material is just bad for split rings, if i were you i would not bother. Even the best most expensive ring will not be as good as your average $0.04 steel splitring from china. If you must have titanium look at a carabiners instead (not the fancy 'edc' design ones, just a regular one with a steel spring) or if you need all 100% titanium get a shackle.
