And now we can suffer even more humiliation at the hands of Nova Labs alum Erik Moon, creator of the Decadent Minimalist One – Aluminum Wallet (DM1).
Like most things, we need a purist with a vision to help us see the light:
I was not satisfied with other so-called minimalist wallets – the idea of taking a beautifully machined metal wallet and pairing it with elastic straps, velcro or rubber bands was offensive to me.
The only way to get a DM1 right now is through its Kickstarter campaign, which launched September 23rd. The campaign was funded after a day and after a week it has raised over $26K!
The DM1 is milled from a solid billet of 7075-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum. It weighs 0.8 ounces and holds up to 8 ID or credit cards. You’ll feel and hear a “click” when cards are inserted to let you know they are secure.
The DM1 is one piece of machined aluminum. There are no screws, rivets, hinges, magnets or clasps.
Each DM1 comes in your choice of 3 colors (or un-dyed hard-anodized finish) and is laser-engraved with two lines of customer-supplied text.
Tough: Hard Anodized Aluminum Finish
Erik has the prototypical maker at heart, having been a member of Nova Labs. During his time with us, Erik exhibited superior fabrication skills and a passion for great craftsmanship. This maker is most deserving of our support and we look forward to seeing what’s next!
