    Cache (kash) [noun]

    1. a hidden place for provisions, valuables, treasure – as used by explorers or adventurers

    2. a secure place of storage

    The Wingback Key Cache is designed to enhance and complement your everyday carry, while discreetly adding functionality. 

It neatly clips onto your keyring and contains a secure compartment to store banknotes and an “if found” note in case your keys go missing. Having emergency cash tucked away will spare your blushes if you forget your wallet. It could even save your bacon on your travels – a backup $100 note can get you out of a lot of tricky situations. Machined from a solid bar of aerospace-grade stainless steel, the Key Cache has been designed to last for decades, not months. For video instructions on how to fold the notes to fit inside, click here.

  • Metal: Aerospace grade stainless steel from Europe, CNC machined in Birmingham, UK. Tungsten carbide carbon finish applied in Cambridge, UK.

    Keyring: As above (included with your Key Cache).

    Sleeve: Oeko-Tex double thickness cotton sleeve from Poland, Europe.

    Finish: Laser engraved, assembled by hand and packaged in London, UK.

  • Dimensions: 40.50mm x 13.6mm diameter (outer), 31mm x 10mm diameter (inner)

    Capacity: Fits GBP, EURO, USD and every other note we have tested (the maximum size we have tried is 160mm x 82mm)

    Engraving: All inscriptions are in capital letters and run across the base of the Key Cache

    Considerations: The Black Steel key cache retains all the precision and corrosion-resistant qualities of stainless steel, while the tungsten carbide finish increases the surface hardness 9x. Any marks it picks up from regular use should be easily wiped away. However, the surface is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. Anything harder than the surface (diamond, some ceramics) or really aggressive use will be able to scratch it, but most items you would carry in your pocket shouldn't. Just remember to carry your diamonds in a separate pocket!

Wedding presents - very well received

I ordered two key caches in black steel as a wedding gift for friends of mine and they went down an absolute treat. As always, Wingback does not disappoint!

Cache for cash

Great gift idea for friends & family. Customised with phone number or email it helps you get lost keys back and a decent ££ note in the cache is handy when your card or phone won’t work without internet. Nice heft, great design, simple, helpful

Perfect lovely compact tools

Great job from the beginning, from ordering to sending it home. Everything went very conscientiously. Not disappointed, I am very pleased with the quality, compassion, lightness, strength. Thanks to the authors of the idea and its producers.
