Nottingham-based design hobbyist Thomas Johnson has his own manufacturing facility, and he’s started a Kickstarter appeal to manufacture the Fusion Wallet, which is really a wallet made out of two aluminum plates, held with a rubber hinge, then wrapped in a hardwood covering.

It can carry 1-8 cards and 1-5 currency notes, or up to 35 business cards. The raised funds will go towards the tooling and fixtures needed for a large production run of the wallets. These — especially the mahogany one — are screamingly beautiful.
