Mystery nut
Mystery nut

Help me figure out what this is! It has a tree on it as the logo with an M in side of it and then T2 as the size maybe? I was gifted it and it got me interested.

Logo is Forrest. Well, actually "Forrest Mountaineering". Not sure what that specific nut is called. Will S

Looks like a #2 Forrest Titon. The smallest sizes weren't really "T" shaped. wivanoff

Yeah, #2 Titon from Forrest Mtneering (Bill Forrest); he was the first to design pro specifically for webbing, not cord. The large Titons were some of the best early non pound-in wide crack pro. He also designed the first modular tool (Mjollnir hammer), and the first MSR snowshoes. And if I remember correctly, did the first solo big wall ascent (half a century ago). Died snowshoeing last winter. Nice guy, great climber. Elliott Crooks

Is that why that "hex" only has 5 sides? Robbie Mackley

Do you have the one that had two slots in it to use as a belay plate?
