Spine: Titanium Minimalist Wallet – Overview & Review

The Spine Titanium Wallet – Real Minimalism on an Epic Scale

The spine wallet takes that minimalist idea and puts it to the extreme. The Spine Titanium is by far the smallest and slimmest wallet I’ve ever come across. On first sight, you’d wonder how something this thin could even be considered a wallet.  While being only .0625″ thick it really does boggle the mind how this wallet can not only be functional but also pleasant to use. Let’s take a further look at the Spine Titanium Wallet and how it compares to the competition.

I’ve never been a big fan of ultra minimalism like the spine wallet. Never the less I always keep an open mind and when this wallet popped up on my Pinterest feed I couldn’t help but stare in complete contemplation to whether or not the price of $30 was something I was comfortable parting with. In the end, my heart overruled my head and within a couple of days (really quick P&P), my new ultra slim wallet was with me.

First impressions

On arrival and unpackaging the wallet the Spine looked and felt amazing. The hard cold feel of the grade 5 Titanium really send a chill down my spine and it gave a real industrial feel that I don’t get with other wallets. From a design perspective, the guys at Spine have done a wonderful job. Below are a few dimensions and general details about the spine wallet.

Size:
3.43″ (H) x 2.185″ (W) x .0625″ (Thick)

87.1mm (H) x 55.5mm (W) x 1.6mm (Thick)

Price

Many people think for what you get you don’t get a lot. The Spine starts at a rather pricey (for me anyways) $30 which is around the mid level for a wallet. It’s up to you to decide whether or not this is a sound investment.

Final Verdict

The spine isn’t a wallet for everyone and it wasn’t for me. Although I loved its look and feel I just didn’t see the appeal of something so plain in functionality. To even consider getting this wallet you first need to understand what this wallet stands for. This wallet isn’t about sheer functionality, expensive leather or secret storage compartments. If thats what you’re after then this isn’t the wallet for you. This wallet is about that single word in its name and the name of this website – Minimalism. 

Only once I’d bought and used the wallet did I realise this so a heads up to anybody unsure about purchasing this wallet. I love the design and see the appeal of this wallet. But for me, it took minimalism to an extreme and I wanted more. This isn’t a criticism but simply personal preference. Regardless if you absolutely love this wallet like a lot of people do check out their website, Kickstarter and Facebook page here!
