Use update: Corter Leather Mechanic’s Wallet

I have had this wallet for a while. At first it was meant as a travel wallet but I didn’t quite like then. Recently, I brought it out from storage, and did manage to use it in a way that made sense to me.

I love the brown leather on this. It is supple, and feels very good in the hand. It is resistant to scuffs and scratches.

Inside the wallet, there is one large compartment, and one slightly smaller one behind it. The intended use was for the large one to hold bills, and the one behind it to hold some cards. In addition, on the front, there are two slots to hold more frequently used cards.

However, I found that with cards kept on the front, the way the wallet folds makes it hard for one to access the bills properly. Hence, I configured it so that there is nothing in the front slots, and bills and cards are kept together in the large compartment. I use the back compartment for coins. It is not as deep so you can easily find your coins.

In this wallet, I am using Japanese currency. The bills, including 10,000 yen notes, can fit without folding, but the level of snug depends on the number of coins in the other compartment. If you are in a rush, you may have to fold your notes and rearrange them later.

I am looking forward to having this wallet in rotation more often!
