    I've got these small 'bumps' over my wallet, on the front side. Does anyone know the reason for them, and if there is any way to get rid of them?

    P.S. Apologies if this is the wrong section to post.

    Maybe the cow from whose hide the wallet was made had acne or razor burn. :D

    In all seriousness, it's just a part of the character of the leather.

    We do not get acne! Nor do we shave!:D

    That may, or may not be true. I have no comment on the matter.:D

    Pockmarks are common on fullgrain leather. But usually you can only see them with the smooth satin finish, like the type that saddleback uses, since it leaves a rougher finish than shiney "patent" leather type finishes. I have a few on mine as well, and a few dings from keys and such. I've had the same wallet as you for the last year, and I plan on using it for 99 more.
