The Journeyman wallet is the perfect everyday carry companion. It has two card pockets to carry all of the cards you really need for day to day use, plus a large hidden compartment for extra cards, bills and receipts. There is a place to hold a pen or pencil, and space for a notebook. Each Journeyman wallet comes with one complimentary Field Notes branded notebook, which are made in the USA, although it will fit any notebook that is 3-1/2" wide by 5-1/2" tall. A passport will also fit nicely in place of a notebook, so it can double as a travel wallet. I designed the Journeyman for those on the go that need everything close to hand, and prefer to make physical notes rather than type into their phone. It's perfect for writing down sudden ideas, working things out on paper, making lists, and especially for those who keep a journal.
This notebook wallet is made from a rugged Hickory coloured Show Harness leather, sourced from Wicket & Craig in the United States, one of the few remaining tanneries still producing vegetable tanned leather. The Show Harness leather they produce is hot-dipped in a special mix of oils and waxes. The rich concentration of oils in the leather makes it highly resistant to moisture and displays a handsome pull-up effect when the leather is bent or stretched. Wickett & Craig's Harness leather is the best smelling leather of any I have ever worked with. You can learn more about different kinds of leather here.
Every wallet is stitched by hand using Maine thread, a waxed polyester cord twisted from four strands. You can customise your Journeyman wallet with your own choice of thread colour. The Journeyman in the images above is stitched with brown thread, for reference. Every edge is cut, bevelled and burnished by hand to ensure a durable finish to the leather, and all of the metal hardware is made from solid brass with an antique finish.
The pen slot will fit pens or pencils up to 85mm in length (the pen you see here is 80mm long and is not included). If you would like to know where I found my pen, it is a Short Hex pen, handmade by Towers Works in Japan and made from solid brass. The purchase of a Journeyman wallet includes one Fieldnote's brand notebook with ruled paper. If you would prefer plain paper, let me know in the "Special instructions for seller" box in your cart. You will receive 50% off your first refill pack of notebooks when ordered alongside the Journeyman notebook wallet.
I make these individually on a made to order basis. Please allow up to two weeks of production time before your order is shipped.
Initials/monograms can be stamped into the leather by request. Please leave a note on the order with the initials and preferred location on the wallet.
