Eyes-On: Flagrant Beard Leather Wallet
Big Joe Neuroth
I was lucky enough to receive a Flagrant Beard leather wallet recently. I haven’t had a chance to give it a thorough going-over just yet, so these are only my initial impressions. I think most wallet designs are made without any serious thought. Flagrant Beard’s wallet, on the other hand, was designed with a purpose and stands out.
A few quick thoughts about the wallet. Its super simple and keeps the stuff in organized. It has two interior card slots with plenty of room, and a clear ID window. My favorite part is the quick access exterior card slot.
The best part is that it’s 100% percent made in the U.S.A by the Amish. For those who have never watched the Amish Mafia on TV, they make some great stuff and their workmanship is top notch. This thing isn’t just some wallet you pick up at a department store. It’s packed with features, including full grain leather.

Here’s more about Flagrant Beard in their own words:
We are listeners that are passionate about making the gear you want and need.
Drawing on a lifetime of experiences in the industry, our approach to development is through an immersive discovery process. We’ll come to you and peel back the onion, often revealing opportunities for improvement that have been overlooked due to training scars, tradition, or institutional habits.
We support our veteran and first responder communities, and every style offered has come from their direct input and feedback. And then we do something novel – we pay them (or the charity of their choosing) a royalty on their designs. We put them in the spotlight and have them explain, “the why.” No ego. All functionality.

About the Author: Big Joe Neuroth may look like a special live exhibit in the primate section of a traveling circus, but he’s actually a surprisingly erudite and articulate LEO of many years service. A corn-fed Iowa native and former Border Patrol agent, Joseph’s current job takes him all over the country and around the world in defense of Truth, Justice and the American Way. This has allowed him not just to deal with assorted malefactors from Nairobi to Panama, but also to have a wank on at least five continents. Joe enjoys training, teaching and catching bad guys almost as much as he likes bubble baths. He does not now nor has he ever spoken Japanese, but he does have a high regard for Akira Kurosawa and good sushi.
