Weekend Wallets

This week I stumbled on a great site called Everyday Carry Via Art of Manliness. EDC words what their site is about as the following:

"Everyday Carry or EDC generally refers to small items or gadgets worn, carried, or made available in pockets, holsters, or bags on a daily basis to manage common tasks or for use in unexpected situations or emergencies. In a broader sense, it is a lifestyle, discipline, or philosophy of preparedness."

While looking in their archive I found a great picture featuring a Billykirk card holder. Looking for a smaller wallet for myself, I thought this fit the bill. I quickly drew up plans and set to constructing it with 5oz tooling leather and artificial sinew. A half hour later it was complete and looked Dynamite! After showing my wife my the finished cardholder and how beautifully simple Billykirk's design was, she asked if I could make a "double wide" version for her with a paper money section. So again maybe 30 min to draw the plan, and 1 hour to make it it was done. Two wallets, two days.
