This week’s selection is the Web Wallet by Craig Brice of Tessallation Studio.
Brice is an interesting character, having worked for a very long time in the field of additive manufacturing. He’s designed and made many additive parts, particularly for the aerospace industry, and once even developed a 3D printed Iron Man suit made from titanium.
Brice was unsatisfied with current slim wallet options, as they tend to be made from non-durable materials that seem to wear out far faster than they should. I have to agree with Brice, as I have to replace wallets constantly.
His solution was to design a slim wallet made from extremely durable materials that would last practically forever.
The Web Wallet is that design. It’s made from a combination of 3D printed aerospace grade titanium and a carbon fiber sheet. You can’t get much more durable than that.
The Web Wallet can accept a small number of cards as well as folded cash, which helps keep the cards tight in the wallet.
Brice has arranged the production of the Web Wallet to allow for some customizations. It’s possible to 3D print a short message, like initials or a name, on the titanium part, and also possible to tint the titanium part in different shades as shown here:
Brice is offering the Web Wallet for purchase on Kickstarter, as his campaign launched earlier this month and runs for another few weeks.
Pricing for the Web Wallet is US$145, which might seem a bit steep for a wallet. But on the other hand, it will be the last wallet you’ll ever need to purchase.
