Three of the five have burrs on the inside from the manufacturing process (i.e. it appears that the sharp fin where the two sides of the press met was not completely ground smooth).

The Wild Country Titan Screwgate Carabiner's compact shape and low weight make it a great choice for building anchors and other can't-fail rigging on the rocks. For everything from setting up a toprope to creating a massive anchor for hanging your portaledge, this Wild Country carabiner gets the job done.
Wild Country's Titan Screwgate Carabiner is an updated classic making this easy clipper even smoother and enhancing it's all-around status as the best basic biner available, the original Titan gets a Keylock nose. The thimble on the gate always stops short of the nose making sure it cannot be over-tightened.
