A few years ago, Mark, our Founder, was machining every Trayvax wallet by hand and powder-coating the aluminum faceplates with a small counter-top oven. Today, Trayvax is a company with over 30 employees working together, assembling, packaging, and shipping several hundred wallets everyday. Mark has expanded the Trayvax line to include the Element, Summit, Contour, Axis wallets with many more products on the way.

Pair that with RFID-protection and a hidden coin pocket for an all-purpose metal wallet, the Axis is built for any adventure or everyday carry. This wallet is designed to move with you wherever you venture. Having the ability to micro-adjust the plates to hold one card up to fourteen makes this minimalist wallet fully customizable to your unique lifestyle.

by Brian Zig July 24, 2020 3 min read

Creating Everyday Carry products comes with the responsibility of designing more than a key organizer that doubles as a multi tool. All of our products are designed to last a minimum of 65 years. 

Are you tired of keys digging into your thighs while sitting down?

We designed the G10 CNC-Machined top plate to endure rugged conditions while still appearing sleek in your front pocket.
