Well, Kapital has launched a set of wallets that pay homage to this famous piece of chain-stitching equipment. The Leather Hand Curving Wallet is made in Japan from a hefty bovine leather and features various iterations of the Union Special in an ornately hand-tooled design on the exterior. Just imagine this thing when that natural leather has darkened with time, complementing the already rich texture and making the design more subtle.
A hefty bifold, this wallet has space for cash, cards, and even loose change in the form of a small snap pocket. Don’t worry if it seems a bit too thick for your back pocket – like all well-made leather wallets, this will compress with time and wear.
Available from $514 at Blue in Green
