Review of Touch of Ginger Wallet Tools
Since we first saw these tools from Touch of Ginger’s Urban Stuff collection we just had to get them here at Heinnie.com. They are unique, useful, stylish and fit comfortably into your wallet.
We have just taken stock of 12 of these wallet tools, each of which serve their own unique purpose and ideal for anyone living in the urban environment.
Who are Touch of Ginger?
Touch of Ginger (TOG) are a UK based design and manufacturing company who are “aiming to be the go-to provider of creative merchandising solutions in the UK”.
TOG also have four core values which you will see come across in the products they produce. Covering their manufacturing, passion, ethics and brand sensitivity. Each core value is driven home with each product they produce.
What are the tools made of?
Out of the tools that have just arrived here at Heinnie Haynes, twelve of the fourteen are stainless steel, whilst the remaining two are carbon fibre.
The stainless steel tools are made out of 70% recycled stainless steel, which as you’ll know if you’ve spent anytime on our website is one of our favourite materials haha!
The carbon fibre tools are slightly higher priced than the stainless steel versions, but the difference is that carbon fibre is roughly five times as strong as steel, two times as stiff and about two thirds lighter. So, in essence you pay slightly more for a much stronger tool.
What sort of tools are included?
All sorts. Everything from wallet combs, lock picks and spanners to cufflinks, fish & chip forks and shoe horns to name but a few. Many of the tools are re-usable and many also have a number of different functions. For example the survival tool, which has fishing hooks, Morse code and knife & fork. Now, that is versatility!
What’s the usability like?
As they have only just arrived we haven’t had a chance to play with all of the different tools yet, but we will say from what we’ve seen we are very impressed. The carbon fibre tools are really strong, and feel very durable; also the spanner sizings are spot on (always helpful).
The stainless steel tools have a bit more flexibility in them (neither good nor bad really). The tools are easy enough to remove and within seconds you will have a fork, cufflinks, toothpick or lock pick.
In short these are extremely handy little tools that fit perfectly into the card section of your wallet or purse. Also because of the price, they are probably one of the coolest stocking fillers you could get someone this year!
