Our wallet chain customers are typically pretty happy with their purchase. As a result, they tend to want to wear their chains everywhere. Occasionally we hear stories of panic however when a customer tries to take their chain onto an airplane, or to a concert, or some other event where maybe security doesn't allow such items.

Do yourself a favor, if you wear a wallet chain on the regular, be smart and have a plan. If you're getting on an airplane the TSA only allows wallet chains in your checked bags or in your carry on. If you're headed to a concert maybe consider a front pocket wallet without a chain. At least one of our customers has successfully worn his chain as a necklace into a concert so that's definitely an option too! The last thing you want is to be denied entry to a show you paid good money to see because you don't want your chain confiscated,and you don't have time to walk all the way back to your car to lock it up.

We know our wallet chains are high quality, and when you own one you'll want to show it off. But you should always be mindful of what your plans are for the day when you're carrying a heavy duty length of chain at your waist. Do yourself a favor, and have a plan.

It's official, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the Super Bowl this year! Much to our chagrin the Bucs have home field advantage for the first time in NFL history but we have faith in our boys to get the job done. Ultimately we suspect it'll be an intense game!

The Forging and Casting fundraiser is live! If you head to that page you'll find a place where you can support/donate towards our goal. We're aiming to get a few new machines this year that will improve the quality of the metal studio. Namely, we're looking at getting a 3D Printer and a Vacuum Sealed Casting Machine. Each of these machines will enable us to more efficiently craft specialized hardware. Currently the forged belt buckles take an exorbitant amount of time to craft, and you can see that reflected in what I have to charge for the belts in order to turn some sort of profit. That being said, when you're a very small team its in everyone's best interest to make things as efficient as possible on the production side of things. Luckily we live in an era where technology makes it much more viable for a small team like ours to make a large selection of items, provided you can afford to purchase said technology. It's a big investment for a small business...
