I’ve been carrying this for about 2yrs now and love it.

Before that I was carrying the saddleback front pocket wallet.

Got away from a traditional wallet because I realized I was stuffing too much crap in there and when I was sitting down my posture was way off.

The ridge wallet is super slim, carries everything I truly need and fits very comfortably in my front pocket.

Makr has some cool stuff! I always thought that their stuff was very over priced...until I made a few of the flap wallets. Supplies are not so expensive but they actually take a lot of time, measuring, cutting, burning, sewing....

You make flap wallets like this one? That’s cool. Love to see one.

I have, it's been a while now. I've made leather notebook/journal covers, wallets, key folds etc. I'll dig out some pics...

This is what I use as well. Love my Ridge wallet. I’ll never go back to a traditional leather wallet.

Might have been me as I have that exact one. Still have it and may put it to use again. Good company.

Gives a whole new perspective on handmade leather goods. You have to really enjoy doing it to get the benefit, as most people don’t want to pay what a hand made item like that really costs. I’ve learned this from the holsters and knife sheaths that I’ve put out.

I prefer slim wallets, this is the latest one I have (bought it about three years ago):

They carry models with RFID blocking too.

I will have to look into those. I've carried a rogue wallet for many years now.

Do those metal lined (lead?) cc slips you get from your local bank work? I’ve been using those for years.

I tried the black aluminum version for a month and couldn’t get use to it.

If anyone’s interested, PM me.

I ended up buying another archbishop from Jason at Monk Made but something a little more multi-color fun in all Italian buttero. I'll post pics once it arrives :gayumbrella: And I was correct in my assumption that ALL Buttero is ~$80 cheaper than cordovan outer, so the decision was simple as I love the first wallet. $220 vs $300 for the OP wallet in the same pattern.

So far his original archbishop pattern has proven great for George Costanza receipt storage.
