Twenty-five-year-old Thomas Johnson fabricates his cool, modern industrial Fusion Wallet from 12 separate CNC-machined aluminum and hardwood components. Gee. I'm almost a decade older than Johnson and I can hardly fabricate a sandwich from sliced bread and a pound of cold cuts.

Each wallet begins as a pair of aluminum plates held together with a hard-wearing rubber hinge. The hinge is strong and durable. Strong and durable enough to dangle an 18-pound weight plate from its body. You know, for all those times someone dares you to incorporate your wallet into your next set of delt raises. Fusion money minders finish with a hardwood wrapping in Iroko, Mahogany, Oak, or American Black Walnut.

Wallets carry a minimum of 1 card and 1 piece of paper money, and a maximum of 8 cards and 5 pieces of paper money. They prefer black American Express cards and monies with mugs of Benny Franklin. They can also hold up to 35 business cards.

The Fusion's Kickstarter campaign runs through July 8, 2013. Price levels vary depending on the type of wood selected.

December 2013 Update: The Fusion Wallet exceeded its crowdfunding goal and is now available for direct purchase through the company's website--follow the link below.
