Almost nothing is as timeless and beautiful as natural materials. And we think that’s something that people can agree with across the board – whether it applies to architecture, artwork, or (of course) everyday carry gear. It also doesn’t hurt that these materials tend to be pretty durable and long-lasting when used in the right application. In this case, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump to highlight two of our favorites: wood and leather. Whether you’re looking to infuse your everyday carry with some unmistakably classic looks or you just like the promise and lifespan of solid gear, this rustic loadout has something for you.

Built to be one of the toughest wallets of all time, Trayvax’s flagship wallet, the Element, is built from a sturdy combination of stainless steel and top grain American oil-tanned leather.

The James Brand County Knife
This reimagining of the classic pocket slipjoint folder measures up at only 6″ overall – making it the perfect size for even the most crowded pockets. It’s blade is built from Sandvik steel and is mated to a handle made from a combination of walnut and stainless steel. The James Brand never disappoints.
