Its a fair question. Do people still wear wallet chains? To answer that question you should probably ask yourself another question, Do people still ride motorcycles? Of course they do! As riding grew in popularity it turns out, a lot of folks ended up losing their wallets on the side of the road. One odd seat adjustment and zow! But then some frustrated biker came along and said, "You know what? This losing your wallet while riding thing is dumb. I'm gonna chain it to my belt so it doesn't slip out!" And voila, an entirely new accessory was born. The punk rock scene pulled a lot of influences from the earlier biker culture, and naturally the chain fit right in with the style. Plus, it served a couple purposes: Firstly it stops people from picking your wallet and at a raging punk show, well you can imagine how important that could be. And secondly, it turns out when you surround yourself with rough people, it doesn't hurt to have a good length of chain handy. These days though the wallet chain is all about style. You can find an insane variety of chains out there, but obviously we're going to tell you to check out ours. You'll find a ton of cheaply made imports made in sweatshops online, but if you want to buy something sturdy, stylish and made in America you should seriously consider grabbing one of our chains. The chainmail chains we offer are definitely unique. One of the benefits of working with high quality materials is you get to put together some seriously wicked products. But even still we have chains that run the entire price gamut. No matter what you're looking for we probably have something you'll love if you're in the market.

The Mini Long Wallet started out as a way to appease some of our customers that liked the long wallet but just wanted something a little shorter. Obviously we do try to listen to our customers' feedback because that's just good business. The original design wasn't even available as a stock item. But folks saw us make a few as requested by some of our customers on social media and before long it had a achieved a somewhat cult status in as much as a style of leather wallet can have a following. Eventually we had enough interest in them to make a version that was available on the website, and they've sold fairly well over the years. That being said, there's always room for improvement. We're constantly looking at ways we can better the styles and designs of our products.

It is conceivable that in the coming years we're going to have a surge of folks who have discovered the joys of working with their hands. Many people are suddenly finding themselves at home with a new abundance of time and an uncertainty of what to do with said time. Because of Covid-19 people can't go out and do many of the things they're used to, so it would not surprise me in the least if we have a new generation of makers and craftsman come of this pandemic.
