Out of the United Kingdom, DWCraftsUK makes a very interesting wallet called the Rivet Coin Wallet and is one of our Top Etsy wallets of 2021.
The wallet itself has no sewing, it only uses rivets to keep it together. Previously, we have reviewed a similar wallet, the Mr. Lentz wallet, which has a resembling long open billfold. Still, it is kind of fun and it is a thin design despite all the features it offers. An incredibly built coin pouch wallet, with nicely placed and attractive brass rivets.
The DWCraftsUK Rivet Coin Wallet has no features on the exterior, while on the interior, it has two card slots with a capacity of 4 to 15 plus cards. Right behind it is another card slot, which will accommodate the lesser-used cards. These two slots are not separated, they have a slit that run into each other. On the right-hand side are key slots, right next to it there is a coin pouch and a very tall and generous billfold pocket.
From a capacity perspective, minimalist carry is six cards, while reasonable, might be eight. In the insertion test, eight cards fit just fine. The company indicates that it can hold 15 or more cards. An additional 7 cards were added to the eight cards previously inserted, and as uncomfortable as it may sound and look, they do fit. All currencies work without any issues. Moreover, the inclusion of the key slot is clever, and there is room for more than one. The key slips back in between the leather wrap and does not come out easily thanks to the pressure exerted by the leather and the wallet itself. In addition, since it is facing inward, it gets trapped by the fold, so naturally, they will not fall out of the wallet.
People often carry cards inside of the billfold pocket area, but in this particular wallet, they do not work vertically. From a quality perspective, this is designed and made in the United Kingdom, thus the “UK” portion of the DWCraftsUK name. It is full-grain vegetable-tanned leather, it smells pleasantly good. The rivets are strong brass and rust-proof, therefore, they will not present real issues. There may be no sewing on this wallet, but where the cards are placed, nothing will fall out. These rivets will do the job and the wallet will develop a beautiful patina on the leather over time.
The DWCraftsUK Rivet Coin Wallet is priced at $58. From a usability perspective, the design is very exact, with very tight folds and very precise rivets. The owner Dan designed the wallet to be very thin despite all the functionality it offers. And I do find it to be easy to use with the bulk that would otherwise develop over time depending. The measurements are 4.5 x 3.3 x 0.4”, and the weight is 68 grams. Dan has an eclectic number of products he sells, including bowties, which I honestly really like. I have only worn bowties for the past 35 years.
The final score of the DWCraftsUK Rivet Coin Wallet scores 5 for the quality, 3 for the price, another 5 for the features, as it has many features with enjoyable placements, and finally usability and perception score a 3 each. The final score is a great score of 38 out of 50.
