Front Pocket, RFID Blocking, Expandable Wallet. Fits all the contents of your old wallet. We want to make cool stuff for your pockets!

Please share our project with your friends and family!

The Story

Some people collect watches or shoes, but I've always had a thing for wallets. I wear through wallets faster than shoes, then add them to the collection. I started this project to create a wallet for myself. I‘m an industrial designer so, naturally, my personal project has evolved. After several 3D models and numerous prototypes, the wallet took form as a front pocket wallet- that blocked RFID, expanded to accommodate the entire contents of my leather wallet, became smaller than any wallet I ever owned and included a quick access spot for cash. The idea started as a way to create something cool for myself. As I used the wallet on a daily basis, people showed interest. The idea has gained traction, and here we are. 

KNOX FPW (Front Pocket Wallet)

I’ve designed this wallet to outlast the wallet you carry now. All of its parts are replaceable and interchangeable. You will be able to buy all of the parts for the KNOX wallet individually in the near future. This also allows you to customize the wallet to your liking. All parts will be offered in 5 Cerakote™ colors initially. Cerakote™ has superior impact resistance, corrosion protection, hardness, adhesion, abrasion and chemical resistance over other brands of ceramic coating. It will also be available in a raw aluminum finish. For some, standard color choices won't do. Offering the wallet in a raw aluminum finish allows you to completely customize the look by painting it yourself or applying your own custom graphics.

RFID Protection 

The aluminum bodies of the KNOX wallet prevent your RFID enabled cards from being transmitted while in the wallet. Simply slide the card out when you are ready to transmit a signal.

What is RFID Skimming? It’s a form of identity theft. Wireless identity theft is a relatively new technique of stealing information from RF-enabled cards such as credit, debit, or government issued identification cards. Each of these cards carry a Radio Frequency Identification chip which responds to certain radio frequencies. The response can contain encoded personal identifying information, including the card holder's name, address, Social Security Number, phone number, and pertinent account or employee information. Upon capturing this data, thieves are then able to program their own cards to respond in an identical fashion. 

KNOX is made for your front pocket.

Sitting on a traditional wallet can cause chronic lower back pain.  By sitting on a wallet, you are elevating one side of your pelvis which can cause instability in your pelvic joints.  This can lead to lower back sprains and strains. Moving your wallet to your front pocket can eliminate these pains.  The KNOX wallet is designed to fit in your front pocket so you don't have to sit on your wallet any more. 

Designed and Manufactured in the USA

The KNOX wallet will be machined in Orlando, Florida at an ISO 9000 certified facility that has been in business for 35 years. I've had a business relationship with this company for 8 years. The covers and bodies of the wallet are machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum. All Aluminum parts will be coated in Cocoa, FL using Cerakote™. KNOX wallets will then be assembled in Cocoa Beach, FL using Mil-Spec woven nylon webbing and 18-8 SS Flat Head Philips Machine Screws with a Black Oxide Finish.

Customize your KNOX Wallet.

It is simple to change the parts on your wallet to create a look that is unique to you.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Manufacturing on a large scale does have its challenges. I have partnered with a manufacturing facility that has been in business for 35 years. Located in Central Florida, they are within arms reach. With an ISO 9000 Quality System in place the company has become the leader in the “Build to Print” custom metal fabrication, manufacturing and finishing market. I am confident that they will have no problems manufacturing the KNOX wallet even if the orders reach into the thousands.

I have spent the past few months preparing a team that will accomplish the manufacturing, assembly and shipping for this project without any speedbumps. We are prepared and everything is in place! We've been waiting for you and we're ready to hit the ground running so we can deliver a quality product to you on time. If a problem does arise, we do have a back-up plan with back-up help. We'll let you know every milestone we hit in the manufacturing process, but don't hesitate to ask questions if your curiosity gets the best of you.
