Stainless Steel Wallet

Here’s another interesting product from Hammacher Schelmmer. It’s a wallet that is made of woven stainless steel threads. Besides resisting stains and stretching, it also resists radio-frequency hacking of newer credit cards.

    The biggest knock on this wallet is that it is not very durable and won’t stretch to accommodate a lot of cards. They actually have a redesign where the fold is not metal. Sharp looking wallet though.

    I am a wallet pack-rat, so it won’t work for me, sadly.

    Not durable? Please explain what you mean here, as to my knowledge steel is very durable, even when woven in a fibrous form

    Like Bryan has said, it is not very durable.

    I used to own a stainless steel wallet because of its novelty but it did break after just ~3 months of use to me. The folding part and one of the corners were actually tearing apart. I also had some trouble putting some cards in it. But I can’t recall if it’s the same brand…

    While it may not have stains, it shown quite a lot of “metal wrinkles” after some use (and with the shadow/lighting and its greyi-sh colour — it just looked like stains to me).

    In the end I went back to leather wallet but I do miss the thinness of it.

    dirfwear makes wallets using the faraday’s cage concept, so has RF blocking layer sewn in but is otherwise a regular leather type wallet. Quite a bit simpler than having the whole wallet made of medal.

    Though those aluminum card cases are pretty good too and help prevent card bending over time.
