There is a new company called RealSkinWallets.com and someone on here had mentioned that they made really nice exotic wallets. I had to order one immediately as i've recently become addicted to wallets. It was hard to decide which one to get. I was deciding between crocodile or shark. They didnt have the color I wanted in Shark so i contacted the owner and he told me they had one that was exactly what I wanted, a billfold with tough stitch and no id flap. The price was $45 plus 9$ shipping. The company is based in Bangkok, Thailand so it took exactly 2 weeks to get here. Although I just received this wallet today (so long term observations obviously cannot be made), I feel that I can at least give a good first impression of the wallet. Packaging: The wallet came in a nice bubble mailer with a picture of a lil guy with a big smile holding a package. On the inside was a plastic zip baggie. Inside of the plastic baggie was a felt bag with which the wallet fit perfectly.` Stitching: The stitching along the edges is top notch, very tight and looks like it will hold up for a few lifetimes. The stitching on the inside is also tight and even. I specifically ordered "Tough Stitch" but you can also get the normal stitch. Fit And Finish: The leather has a very very good fit and finish to it. Considering this is the only wallet like this, there isn't much to compare with so i can only compare it to my wallets that i have now. By far this one blows everything else out of the water. This was made within the last month and when i pulled it out of the package i could actually smell the leather and dyes. The coffee brown color is even and shows off the pattern of the shark skin well. Design: So as I mentioned, I specifically wanted this kind of wallet, but there are other designs and the owner can work with you to get you what you want. I hate all ID flaps and do not need alot of card slots (as can be seen in pic) so really what I wanted was just a place to put my money and that's it. This is a strictly basic bifold design which makes it very thin with nothing in it. The coffee brown on the outside with light brown on inside contrasts very well. Besides the 6 card slots, there are also 4 secret compartments (2 on each side) behind the card slots. Materials: Shark skin exterior and interior with calf trim and polyester lining on bill compartment. The owner told me he recently moved to polyester lining in bill fold because he was using bison and it made the wallets very bulky. Some people do not like polyester but i find it makes the wallet very light. Next to my snakeskin wallet it is not much heavier and that's the lightest wallet I have ever owned. I am thinking of buying a crocodile wallet from him which has bison lining but the wallet looks considerably larger in thickness and i'm not looking for a pocket bomb. Shark skin is said to be 7-12x stronger than cowhide which is why I chose it. Overall impression is very good considering the quality put into this wallet and the price ($45). I would definitely order another wallet from him and I hope you would consider it also. Usual price for a shark skin wallet which isn't even this good is $70-90. He has recently upped each wallet by $2 and offered free shipping, guess I missed that boat.
