Hammer Riveted Leather Wad Wallet, minimalist wallet, vegetable tanned full grain leather, made in America by American Bench Craft

Hammer Riveted Wad Wallet

The Wad Wallet by American Bench Craft is half the Hammer Riveted Wallet and it was created for the individual who embraces our emphasis on a minimalist lifestyle and wishes to take it one step further. It has just two pockets perfect for carrying a wad of cash and a few cards. The spacious cash pocket holds 10+ bills that only need to be folded once. Like our Front Pocket Wallet, the Wad Wallet is ideal for formal events, a night out on the town, or traveling.

It’s the perfect solution for when you are headed out and don’t need all the contents in your regular wallet. It easily fits inside a suit jacket pocket for formal occasions, a front pants pocket for safeguard while traveling or athletic clothing without the bulky bulge of your regular wallet.

The Wad Wallet will comfortably hold 1 – 4 credit or ID cards in the front, quick-access pocket and a wad of cash bills folded once in the interior pocket, while maintaining a slim and sleek profile. Do NOT overstuff the front card pocket as the leather will mold around the additional items and result in an insecure fit.

This wallet is constructed from a single piece of rugged, full grain leather, hand-cut from one of our vegetable-tanned Steer hides. We fold the leather and secure the wallet using metal rivets, NO THREAD STITCHING. Finally, we stamp and finish the wallet using simple hand tools for an entirely handcrafted product, proudly Made-in-the-USA.

Why Vegetable-Tanned Leather?

Vegetable-tanned leather is meant to break in over time and become more supple with age and use. We use only vegetable-tanned leather because it is completely all-natural and develops a unique and beautiful patina that is entirely your own.

Additionally, vegetable-tanned leather is environmentally friendly, requires skilled craftsmen to produce and dye, and smells like leather, not chemicals. All of this ensures our wallets are of the highest quality and will not wear away with age or use.  

Why Metal Rivets instead of Thread Stitching?

Both thread stitching and metal rivets offer strong holds. However, we’ve found rivets hold up better against the heat and friction that result from carrying and using your wallet every day. Over time, heat and friction fray thread, which is why many wallets ultimately fall apart. Heat and friction simply polish metal; making rivets a unique, strong and attractive alternative to thread stitching.

Why a Single Piece of Leather?

Simple products are more durable. Fewer parts equal less susceptibility to failure. Our single piece design concept ensures our wallet’s long lasting strength and durability. 

How can you tell our Leather is Full Grain?

Upon close inspection, you’ll notice subtle scars, brands and marks that ensure your wallet was made from full grain leather. Hides are split into numerous layers; however, each hide has only one Full Grain layer. The Full Grain layer is the very top of the hide, and is the most sought after cut because it is the strongest layer and develops a unique and beautiful patina, which allows the leather to improve with age and use.

The subtle imperfections characteristic of full grain leather ensure the authenticity of your wallet, and that a completely all-natural and unaltered material was used in its construction, making your wallet incredibly durable and one-of-a-kind.

    It starts with a better leather and that's what they use.
    It just gets better the more you use it. I have the back pocket wallet, a black belt, now the front pocket wallet, soon to order the brown belt, it is the best money can buy, and comfortable. What more can you ask for!
