The Radix One slim wallets have generated a lot of buzz on the internet, with over 3200 reviews on Amazon…
But some of those reviews aren’t good…
In this Article I’ll discuss whether you should buy the Radix One Black Steel, or if it’s just scrap metal…
The Radix One Slim Wallet is a very simple wallet designed to replace the standard bifold or trifold wallet.
The Radix One Black Steel is made with 3 parts:
The silicon band wraps around the hardened steel plates to sandwich credit cards and IDs in the middle. The band also acts as a money clip…
The steel plates give it a satisfying weight in your hands, almost like holding an expensive watch. They are strong with a little flex, meaning this wallet will last many years.
If you place your most frequently used cards on the top and bottom of the stack, you can access them very quickly, much more quickly than with a bifold wallet.
It’s so thin, you won’t even feel it in your pocket. And it slides out of your front pocket with ease.
I’ve been using this wallet every day for a few weeks and the paint hasn’t chipped or faded at all. The powder coat also gives it a sleek matte black appearance.
The silicon band holds everything very tight. Nothing will accidentally fall out of your wallet.
The ease of access to the top and bottom cards creates some difficulty in accessing the middle cards. But once you master the push-and-pinch technique it becomes much easier..
The steel plates constantly rub against the top and bottom cards every time you slide them out. It hasn’t caused any loss of functionality in the cards yet, but it is causing some superficial damage after just a few weeks.
Although it will block most RFID, it will still allow hackers to steal information if they can get within a couple millimeters of your wallet. For 100% protection you will need something like the Signal Vault RFID Protection Card.
Even with the cons I mentioned, I love the Radix One Black Steel. It fits so comfortably in my front pocket and meets all of my needs. At the time of writing this article it is my new daily driver. If you typically carry between 4 and 10 credit cards and not much cash, this wallet is perfect for you.
