Hammer riveted, vegetable-tanned, full grain leather wallet made in the USA by American Bench Craft

Hammer Riveted Leather Wallet

This Wallet by American Bench Craft is constructed from a single piece of rugged, full grain leather, die-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.

The two front pockets are designed for quick-access use and should be designated for items you use frequently. These pockets are meant to hold 2 – 4 credit or ID cards each. Do NOT overstuff the quick access pockets, as the leather will mold around the additional items and result in an insecure fit. The two inside pockets will hold 8-10 business cards, a wad of cash folded once and/or any additional cards you cannot part with.

Our wallet’s minimalist design is aimed to help men simplify their lives and reduce clutter. The fewer items you carry, the slimmer and sleeker your wallet will be.

Why Vegetable-Tanned Leather?

Your leather wallet will arrive stiff and rigid, similar to a new baseball glove or pair of quality leather shoes. Vegetable tanned leather is completely all-natural and is meant to break in over time, improve with age, become more supple with use and develop 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 constantly pulling your wallet out of your pocket and putting it back in. 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.

    Nice Quality Wallet, Beautifully Crafted

    Posted by Sherre on 28th Dec 2015

    I ordered this as a present for my husband. It was a little smaller than I had anticipated but, still a very high quality leather. It holds more than you think it would. I had it engraved with his initials which gave it a personalized touch. I am a little worried about his cards sliding out of the top of wallet as it wears in the future. We will have to see about that. Overall, I am very satisfied with the wallet and so is my husband. I can definitely say he will not be receiving a wallet every year for Christmas as this one was built to last!

    Just what I was looking for.

    Posted by Todd on 2nd Nov 2015

    This wallet was just what I was looking for... It is a very nice compact wallet that holds all of my essentials and a few extras, It is built and crafted very nicely. I like the fact that it has no stitches or glue holding it together like other wallets out there on the market, Just a plain simple well built wallet that will get the job done and last for a long time

    Better for cards than cash

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Aug 2015

    Very nice piece of leather, this wallet will last for years and is starting to break in nicely. Very good quality but his wallet works best if you mostly use credit or debit cards for purchases as I tend to do.

    The pocket for cash requires the folding over of bills and is fussy and inconvenient to quickly access bills compared to a traditional top-opening wallet especially if you carry larger amounts. Would like American Bench Craft to make a high-quality traditional open top bi-fold wallet to complement this design.

    ***** For quality
    ***** For credit cards
    **** For design
    ** If you primarily use cash

    So good I bought more!

    Posted by Chris on 13th Feb 2015

    I have purchased quite a few of these wallets for friends and family members since my buying my own last year. I used to have card wallets because of the easy access to cards. This wallet is even better. Quick access topside to frequently used cards and money folded once or other items inside inner pockets. I am hard on my wallets so the no stitch and quality bridle leather design guarantees long life. I purchased the brown leather and gold rivets. Almost a year later it has a nice patina shine and the brown is even darker like Walnut. Excellent product.
