    The newest model to hit the website! This is my first 100% machine stitched wallet so it is priced accordingly. It has two interior card slots with thumb slots to easily slide out your cards. In the version I'm carrying, I have about 8 cards in each slot but it could easily hold more. The exterior has the option of having a bill slot as well.

    Let me know your feedback!

    Hey all! I managed to get a hold of yet another two shell wallets since I posted last (someone take my ****ing debit card away from me) and they are pretty awesome!

    The first is a custom natural shell card case from OneStarLeather that my girlfriend bought for me as a gift (bless her).This shop is very new to me but the workmanship is pretty nice! And I just love the design and the thickness of the shell. It's a very small carry but I've managed to fit 6 cards in it and over the last two weeks it's developed a nice patina.

    The second is another Ashland Leather piece I picked up on Massdrop. It's their Johnny the Fox model in whiskey shell and it is AWESOME. I don't know if I am going to keep it yet because traditional bifolds are (to no ones surprise but mine apparently) really THICK but the color is so great and the shell feels awesome. I really don't want to part with it but we will see! The only gripe I have is I terms of the burnishing. I love everything I've ever purchased from Ashland but the burnishing on this specific piece was so light it was hardly noticable. But overall I am very very happy with the purchase and with the awesome folks over in Chicago.

    It's been awhile! Here is a cool wallet I'll be throwing up on the Sample Sale section of my website later this week. The interior is made from the remaining pieces of the Shinki Hikaku Lava Shell Cordovan I had on hand. The exterior is made from Shinki Hikaku Natural Shell Cordovan. Hand stitched with waxed Japanese thread!
