I decided it was time for an update on a wallet line we wrote about last summer because I really like the new finishes and engravings.

The Spine wallet is made by brothers Josh (the machinist) and Caleb (the designer) Barclay, an Arizona-based duo. They continue to refine their minimalist design, which is touted as one of the thinnest out there. At .0625″ it still retains one of most important features you need other than the ability to hold your cards and cash: a built in bottle opener.The wallet is offered in a Grade 5 Titanium which is 40% lighter than steel, ID theft resistant and non-magnetic.
Of the finishes offered I think my favorite is Unicorn Vomit, shown above. The colors are great and the name certainly sets it apart.Like a great leather wallet, I imagine that the standard copper wallet will develop a beautiful patina over time that will tell a story.The Damascus wallet above is made from 5 different metals that are placed in 13 layers and then folded over 5 times before being etched to reveal the unique textures.
Some of the finishes noted above are not available on Huckberry, you can check them out on the Spine site.

Jefferson used a revolving armchair believed to be made by New York City cabinetmaker Thomas Burling. The finely crafted replica on the left is based on that chair and is also hand-crafted in New York. Jefferson also liked the relaxed posture of his Campeachy chair, right)and its classical lines.
The Primrose Coverlet features a design popular in the USA since the early 1800s. 90” x 98”.
Here are some perfect gifts for the patriot: “Jefferson’s Ten Rules to Live By” and framed copies of the words, “Life,” “Liberty,” and “Happiness.”
