Hanging on to those Hamiltons and Franklins…

Always wanted that epitome of stylishness, a duct-tape wallet?  Of course, one can buy it…  But now the same folks, DB Clay, that sell the finished product, will send a kit, so that one can have the satisfaction of making one’s own– and the artistic freedom to make it just as one likes it:

In search of the Fountain of Youth, Ponce de Leon came ashore near what we now know as St. Augustine, wearing a fetching silver sword-and-scabbard combination and a pair of tres-courant matchlock pistols, complemented by a stunning stone-encrusted powder horn.
