Work has been super hectic lately, but I was finally able to find some time to squeeze in another wallet project.  This is one of my standards, a short "VEB" wallet - made to resemble the upper/shaft of a Vintage Engineer Boot.  Japanese Wagyū Kobe Cowhide is my favorite to work with, so I made it a point to incorporate it into this project.  This leather is unlike comparable American hide of the same weight in that it's not dense, which makes the wallet nice and surprisingly light.

This piece is made with (5) card slots, (2) bill/receipt slots and a gusseted coin slot.

Available now in my Etsy shop.

Outer Leather: 3-4 Ounce Japanese Tannery (Kobe) Wagyū hide (Black)
Inner Leather: 2-3 Ounce American Premium Vegetable Tanned Cowhide (Naturally Tanned)
Measurements: 4 1/2" tall x 4 1/4" wide
Hardware: Custom Brass Okuyama (Japan) Engineer Boot Roller Buckle, Brass and Antiqued Brass studs, Brass Buttons, Brass Chain Ring, Brass Jewel Ring, Red Jewel
Condition: Newly Handcrafted
