Or more conveniently, maybe line your pockets with conductive shielding fabric and have a portable faraday cage when on the go. Minimize risk of the phone sitting out there passively waiting to have data harvested. Then just deal with the inconvenience of not getting calls/texts in real-time, and that battery drain as the phone keeps looking for a transmitter to connect to (airplane mode to get it to stop looking).

I found some gold plated playing cards that might be just the right size!

On a more serious note though, I have been looking at this: ArgenMesh Silver Fabric

59" wide and $18.99 by the foot. I might just get my self some once I run out of aluminum.

Hi there folks,

  • Leather - Alran Chevre Sully in black and green.
  • Stitching - Sajou Fil au Chinois Lin Cable in Vert (Green) and Souris (Mouse, or a light grey). All 632 at 9SPI with #4 John James needles.
  • Edges - FN2 heat crease, heat burnished edges with beeswax and paraffin.

    So following up on my previous post, A Tale of Two Wallets I was very lucky to have an order from a client that wanted two different BiFold wallets, both in chevre, and both with RFID blocking capability. So this project already had some new challenges but I decided to up the ante:

  • I had to integrate RFID materials into the exterior panel so I needed to back and split that panel...
  • Using the Landis, I was going to create a 1mm lined exterior panel but splitting the chevre to .5mm and backing them to each other.
  • I decided I wanted the interior cash panel to be lined as well and opted to do a french binding. You can see Ian Atkinson do one in his video about different binding methods.

    The end result would be the kind of wallet I had been wanting to make for a very long time: completely lined, distinct features, still classic, and thin.

    The RFID capability was a new one to me. I hadn't had the request before but I had some guidance from a friend who is a private investigator along with some internet help. While it's really unneccesary to have RFID blocking in your wallet unless your credit cards have an RFID chip (which less than 1% of them do and you'd know it if it did) or a passport (which definitely has one), if you must have it you can embed RF or EMF shielding material within the exterior panel. He was quick to tell me that this will prevent most, but not all, RF signals. I chose a material called Argenmesh; it was highly rated and recommended by other blogs and sites.

    So a while ago I got a Landis 30 and I've been slowly getting it tuned in. Needing to have the RF material embedded made it even more necessary this time around. Thankfully the material was thin so I split the chevre down to .5mm, glued the RF fabric in, and then glued the whole panel together. It worked perfectly.

    I should have done a video of doing the french binding and I will in the future but this was my first time doing it and I didn't want to blow it because I was worrying about the camera (I took some pictures this time though). Basically went like this:

  • Measure how much you want to see the binding at the top of the leather.
  • Glue the pieces together grain to grain.
  • Once you glue it down, stitch along the glued edge to attach the panel.
  • Once sewn in, glue on the panel you are going to turn and, using a bone folder or other creasing tool, fold the panel over the edge.
  • Crease along the fold to make sure it's even, and then make sure the fold has good smooth contact.
  • Turn the corner, and then back the leather as normal, smoothing the glue as you go.

    Terrible descriptions, but please watch Ian's video. He does a much better job of explaining it.

    The other complication about the french binding is that the top is 4 times as thick as the usual interior panel so extra careful skiving had to happen. I chose to not stitch all the way to the edge, and then skive everything down to .7mm as usual at the edges.

    The rest of the construction went very smoothly, stitching was a breeze, and, most satisfyingly, the resulting wallet was the thinnest and most luxurious piece I have created yet. #goals

    I did take some videos this time:

  • Finished BiFold in black chevre.
  • Finished BiFold in green and black chevre.
  • Heating edges with the fileteuse
  • Final Buffing.

    Thank you for reading this far. Questions and comments welcome.
