The simple, angular lines of this solid brass money clip lend a modern and polished appearance. The center of the clip is cut out so that the top and bottom arms overlap, creating a tighter grip.

This Brooklyn-based company created a custom machine for the sole purpose of making these money clips. The shape is laser-cut out of 1/16-inch thick solid brass. The brass is tumbled in a special metal machine that polishes and cleans to even out the finish. The pieces are then bent by hand on the custom machine, and tumbled a final time.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, and the material has been used for ship parts for centuries due to its non-rusting properties.

Use & Care

No special care is required for our brass money clip. Daily contact with the natural oils from your hand will keep the ring polished and provide it a unique patina over time. 

Production & Design

This three-person, Brooklyn-based company began in 2007 with simple, minimally designed men’s wallets, using leathers from a Pennsylvania tannery in operation since the 1800s. Founder Nathan Gryszowka was inspired by a 1940s wallet he spotted at an antique shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The vintage wallet was sleek and pared down—a much better aesthetic than the overly stitched, bulky bi-folds available everywhere else. The initial line of wallets eventually segued into other accessories, including coin pouches, money clips, key rings and bracelets. The angular design of the clip was inspired by the folds of this wallet collection.

Each solid brass clip is made on a special, custom-made machine designed to aid in the process of hand-bending the brass pieces.
