Today’s review is on the Tony the Ant wallet from Ashland Leather. The wallet comes packaged in a sturdy tan box with a very simple design. A wax seal is included on the exterior of the box which is a classy and unique touch. The interior of the box is padded at the bottom and the wallet comes in a linen bag with a thank you card included.
Ashland Leathers, Tony the Ant wallet is a bi-fold. There is one major feature on the exterior which is a billfold pocket where you put cash. On the interior, there are two card slots on both the right and left hand side which are all in a horizontal or landscape position. Another similar wallet would be the Popov 4 card or Popov 5 card wallet.
I was able to get eight cards and five slips of cash inside. The wallet fits U.S., Yen and Euro. It was designed for U.S. Dollars, but works great for other currencies as well. A minimalist carry would probably be five cards. The company indicates it can hold up to sixteen. Eight cards seems the most comfortable with five or more slips of cash.
The Ashland Leather wallet is made and designed in the city of Chicago in the United States. It is made from Horween Dublin, veg tanned leather that smells incredible. It is a naturally finished aniline leather, so you get all of the hide and color variations with each wallet. The sewing is excellent and the thickness of the leather is amazing. The burnishing is done very well and shows the texture of the different layers of leather that are incorporated into the wallet. There is also a personalization option when you order it.
The wallet measures 4 x 3.4 x .4″ and weighs 75 grams.
There is a lot of leather in this wallet. Like anyone with a sound mind, you can’t help but love a handmade, full grain, veg tanned, generous weighted leather wallet. The smell and feel of this wallet are unsurmountable. It is obvious that Ashland creates their products very deliberately.
For the final score: For quality a 5, price a 2, features a 3, usability a 4, and perception a 5. That gives us a final score of 40 out of 50.
