Tristan explains his passion for building the Trayvax Contour. The refined machining and handcrafted quality combined to create the perfect slim metal wallet.
"I ended up at Trayvax actually through a friend. At first I wasn't building Contours I was building the simplest one we make which is the Summit.
My friend was actually the lead worker on the Contour and I could kind of go over there in my free time and ask him, you know can you teach me how to stitch can you teach me how to assemble. Before I knew it I was over there working all day long.
What makes a contour special to me is it's like a perfect combination between technological advances and handmade items. It's cool to say I work with something that has such a value behind it.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) blocking refers to products that protect your cards that have RFID tags. Modern-day credit cards, also known as "smart cards," have an RFID chip inside of them to make transactions faster. Who likes waiting in line anyways?
All RFID blocking wallets range in terms of their protection. What determines the RFID protection level is the materials used on the wallet. Steel and aluminum materials will have the highest form of protection against data theft—for example, our Armored Summit Wallet offers a 95% protection rate against data fraud. Our ultra-thin steel wallet can protect up to eight cards at once.
