Machined from a single plate of “duralumin”, which is also used as an aircraft body material, it is a beautiful seamless unibody finish that not only looks good but also makes the most of the original strength of the material.

Instead of a minimalist wallet that doesn’t carry a wallet in today’s cashless world. It can be used as a credit card case, pass case, commuter case, ID card case, IC card case, and transportation card case.
Prevents cards from falling and rattling
A special leaf spring is set inside the case, and the card is always fixed with constant strength. It has a unique structure that prevents cards from falling out of the card case and rattling inside the case. ■ Smooth touch payment and transportation IC card usage

Credit cards that support touch payment and transportation IC cards can be used while they are in the case. Since it is a frame type and can be used on both sides, you can touch the card case without taking out the front and back IC cards. The top and bottom cards can be seen at a glance, so you can make smart payments.
■ Aircraft body “Duralumin”
The card case is made of lightweight and high-strength duralumin, which is also used for aircraft bodies. Among them, we have carefully selected A2017S made by Furukawa-Sky, which is high quality and highly reliable. It is lightweight and easy to carry, and has high durability that can be used for a long time.
■ 360° beautiful, simple and minimal from any angle

In order to pursue functionality and compactness, the body of the frame-type card case has been shaved down to the very last minute to eliminate waste and achieve an ultra-lightweight and ultra-compact shape. The size is card size + only 6 mm. The thickness is 8 mm, which is about the thickness of a general smartphone. It has been well received by those who mainly use cashless payments and those who pursue a minimal style with only what they need.
■ “Materials”, “Manufacturing” and “Outer box” are completely made in Japan products.
Manufactured by a Japanese motorcycle parts manufacturer that manufactures parts that help protect people’s lives. The card case is manufactured with the high technology of Japan that has been trained in a “no compromise” environment where mistakes are not allowed in units of 1 mm.
■ Simple style, 3 colors
We have prepared simple and elegant black, silver, and titanium gold color variations that are easy to adapt to your lifestyle.
■ Money clip card set
By inserting a money clip card into the card case, it can be used as a card case and money clip.
