5 Badass Metal Wallets every Minimalist will Love

Slim, minimalist wallets are on the rise. The days of carrying around a leather brick stuffed with cards and receipts are thankfully coming to an end. With so many cool minimalist wallets out there, I set out to find some of the most badass ones currently available. And what says badass wallet more than a metal wallet?

That’s right, nothing.

So here is a short list of some of the coolest men’s metal wallets available. When used properly, all 5 are guaranteed to up your badass quotient to peak levels.

The Ridge Titanium Metal Wallet

The Ridge Titanium Metal wallet is about as badass as a wallet can get. Boasting materials typically found in spacecraft & missiles, this wallet sets the bar in terms of originality and cool factor. If a titanium wallet wasn’t cool enough, these wallets are hand torched 🔥 and hardened creating a really cool burnt titanium patina.


So we know the Ridge Titanium looks badass, but what about functionality?

The Ridge Titanium is capable of holding between 1-12 cards. Up to 12 cards is pretty damn impressive considering the slim profile. It’s also nice to know that you can carry as little as 1 card in this thing without worrying about the card falling out. And don’t worry about putting the 12 card max to the test. The elastic straps are designed to not stretch out. So 12 cards or 1, they will be secure. Also the thumb size beveled notch makes getting cards out a breeze.

What about cash?

The Ridge Titanium is available with a cash strap (pictured above) or if you prefer it also comes in a money clip version.

Decadent Minimalist DM1 Aluminum Wallet

If you’re looking for the slimmest, most minimal metal wallet in existence, I say look no further. The Decadent DM1 is about as minimal a wallet as you’re going to come across. This no frills wallet is machined from a single billet of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum. That means there is literally nothing to break on this thing. The DM1’s magic comes from its build. It’s cut into the ideal shape to securely hold your cards. A reassuring click confirms that the card is fully inserted and secure.


The Decadent Minimalist DM1 is offered in 9 cool anodized finishes. Matching your wallet to your shoes has never been easier. Another cool feature of the DM1 is that you can choose between 3 sizes:

  • Slim 12 Card Model – holds 8-12 cards
  • Slimmer 8 Card Model – holds 4-8 cards
  • Slimmest 4 Card Model – holds 1-4 cards

What about cash?

Sorry cash carriers, you’re shit outta luck with this one.

Just kidding. If carrying cash is a must for you, Decadent offers a stainless steel money clip option (sold separately) that seamlessly attaches to the DM1.

Trayvax Contour Minimalist Metal Wallet

Get spotted carrying the Trayvax Contour and it will undoubtedly do your cool factor many favors. The type of favors that your male romper could never do.

Looking like something out of a science fiction movie, the Contour is machined from a stainless steel plate and wrapped in top-grain oil tanned leather.


The Trayvax Contour passes the aesthetics test, but how does it perform as a wallet?

The Contour is capable of holding between 1-13 cards. There is a secure, easy to use clasp feature that will prevent any cards from accidentally falling out.

What about cash?

As you can see from the pictures, the Contour is capable of carrying cash on the back side of the wallet thanks to the leather attachment. This leather strap is actually adjustable to accommodate up to 10 bills.

The Calti Tactical EDC wallet is developed by military engineers and constructed using military grade aluminum and titanium. How cool is that? Anodized in black, and finished using a glass balls sanding process to create a unique, very smooth matte black finish. What’s more badass than matte black, amirite?
