Arceo Wallet | The Premiere Magnetic Carry System

CA$ 35,667


What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Arceo wallet is designed to raise the bar for what a 21st century wallet should be.  Each wallet is precision CNC milled in our Canadian machine shop and hand finished to ensure you receive a product that showcases north american quality and craftsmanship.

Key Features:

  • Made from cutting edge fiber composites used widely in the aerospace industry.
  • An internal spring tensioning system means that you will never have to deal with another over-stretched elastic or broken silicone band.
  • A magnetically secured hard case and latch compartment.
  • A modular key and EDC organizer that locks securely into place with a magnetic slot system.
  • Designed with maximum storage volume in mind so you can carry large amounts of cash securely or up to 14 cards.
  • 100% Made in our Canadian CNC shop. From CAD design to machining, we outsource nothing.

Arceo Wallet Press Kit

There are no cheap silicone bands or cloth elastics that wear out securing your daily carry in this wallet, instead we designed an internal spring tensioning system to perfectly balance ease of card and cash access with physical security.

We understand that the prevailing trend has been to carry a minimalist wallet with a focus on holding only a few cards, however those that want to carry cash and tools securely have been underserved by this trend in wallet design. More often than not the "minimalist" buzzword has been used to justify giving you less function and less wallet at a higher price. This isn't a minimalist wallet...the Arceo is a full-sized wallet that goes to work carrying everything you need and then some.

Spare change?  No problem.
Spare change? No problem.

The Arceo was designed to offer maximum functionality and flexibility for the prepared man. We know that everyone has their unique daily carry gear that is personal to them so we designed the Arceo to enable you to to stow your cash & tools securely in a G10 case stronger than steel and half the weight.

The Arceo is the closest thing to a bulletproof wallet that exists and its rugged durability comes from our dedication to only use the world's strongest composites like G10 and carbon fiber, instead of cheap metals like aluminum, or leather which can wear out and stretch over time.

The Arceo wallet has 4 modular components:

  • (1) a top face plate
  • (2) a veneer card/cash divider set
  • (3) a G10 base plate
  • (4) a back case lid

Every Arceo has access to customization options that allow you to build your own unique magnetic case wallet.

Configure your Arceo Wallet:

  • Charcoal Grey MDS Nylon or Twill pattern veneer card/cash dividers in Gold, Blue or Silver. (additional color choices TBA)
  • G10 Top face plate and back lid options: Stealth Black, Glacier White, Magma Red, Sky Blue, Toxic Green, Olive Drab Green, Black Carbon Fiber or Silver Carbon Fiber. (Special Edition Arceo wallets gain access to all present and future custom engraved plate designs like the "Hunter", "Hex" & "Shard" plates.
  • Brass, Stainless Steel or Black Anodized Aluminum binding posts and back lid fasteners.  Every Arceo wallet receives a spare binding post set in a longer length for maximum card or cash storage capability.
  • Each MaKO key organizer is made from black acetal resin (Delrin, previously G10) and comes with brass or stainless steel #6-32 fasteners for up to 5 keys as well as 8 nylon washers for low-friction rotation of your attached tools.  The MaKO has an embedded nylon locknut so your keys and tools won't loosen with repeated use!

To further showcase the Arceo Wallet, we designed a Solid Walnut, edge-lit EDC Valet Tray to attractively stow your daily carry when not in use. Hand-sanded and oiled, this valet box is an eye-catching contrast between warm hardwood and the modern lines of the Arceo wallet. Finally a reason to upgrade the key bowl by the door!

Key Features:

  • Full RGB color control with removable LED remote.
  • Dynamic LED modes like "breathe" and color transition along with 7 brightness levels.
  • Modular faceplate and fasteners; Polished brass or stainless steel.
  • Removable quick-recovery polyurethane base layer to protect your EDC from scratches.
  • Accent lighting adds visual depth to any workspace.

In addition to savings on both the walnut LED valet tray and Arceo wallet and as a heartfelt "thank you" to our special edition backers, we are also including a FREE low-profile money clip plate and fidget hand spinner in that reward tier. 

Our spinners use top quality hybrid ceramic bearings, sourced from an American company which we clean with hundreds of watts of ultrasonic power for maximum free spinning, stress-relieving action!  Backerclub members also receive a bonus fidget spinner with a pledge for any wallet or valet box.

Part of what makes the Arceo wallet special is that we are dedicated to bringing you along for the ride throughout the entire manufacturing process.  As we use open source Openbuilds CNC equipment to manufacture the Arceo, we recognize the importance of adding value back into the open source ecosystem so others can gain the knowledge and experience necessary to build and create themselves.  So as part of the Arceo project we have started a Fusion 360 CAD/CAM tutorial series to show how the Arceo is made from simple blocks of material to a precision finished product.

Ronin Energetics is a company that is creating the next generation of daily carry products with the world's strongest, most advanced and most durable materials. We openly share our manufacturing process to inspire new makers to build and create and to prove that anything is possible when knowledge is freely shared. A new wave of innovation and bold design is breaking in the world of digital fabrication and we are thrilled to be sharing our latest creation with you! Whether through a like and share on social media or through a pledge, your support is crucial to both our success and our mission to create truly unique and cutting edge designs that will inspire and amaze!

Risks and challenges

By pledging for an Arceo wallet, you'll be supporting not just a great product but a new company and we recognize how important it is to take care of you, our backers, and to earn your trust. We have made many pre-production batches of the Arceo wallet in preparation for release to ensure you aren't just backing a couple of prototypes but a product that is tweaked and ready for full production. We have solid suppliers we have used for over a year from our previous 3 Kickstarter campaigns, all of which were produced and shipped early without a hitch.

We are looking forward to producing further great content about our manufacturing process to keep our backers informed of progress and to provide valuable insight into the intricacies of CNC automation and the CAD/CAM design processes. We are experienced in delivering on schedule through Kickstarter so you can rest assured that we will stay in constant communication with you throughout the entire process to ensure you know when to expect your shipment. We thank you for your support whether through a share or a pledge, without you we could never make this project possible!
