    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!

Style and substance

There are many ways to carry a little bit of emergency cash in an increasingly cashless society. The Wingback key cache is just a little bit stylish than most. Laser engraved with a return phone number (just in case as it is on my minimal carry carry).

Beautifully Made.

I have just received the key cache in brass and a custom moleskin note book cover. Both are exceptionally well made and personalised to me so feel very special. Keep up the great work Wingback team.

Hated it, made my front pocket chunkier if anything.

Way too expensive, you have to make it yourself, makes your front pocket carry another thing, I much prefer a carabiner which doesn’t work well with this either when you carry house keys and a car key fob, when I asked if they could help me they chose not to and rather me return the item and get a refund instead which took money out of my pocket, extremely unhappy.

Hi Pablo,

It's a shame the key cache wasn't to your taste - you asked for help with an international return which I talked you through and then refunded your order once it had arrived back at the workshop. We don't offer free returns, either internationally or domestically in the case that someone changes their mind.

Best of luck finding a more suitable addition to your keys.

Thanks,

Megan

A piece of history

Some things in life are essential, some things in life are important, some things in life are a luxury and some things in life are obsolete.

Putting this product in one of those categories is more subjective than objective.

To own an item of this level of quality that follows one around every step of the way through the daily journey of life makes one feel... no... makes one KNOW that one has a piece of history in their pocket.
An item that will undoubtedly become a piece of history once a kin way down the line will proudly explain to some observant fellow human how this masterfully designed and machined chunk of grade-A quality metal went through the hands of many ancestors...

It is then when the line between essential, important, luxury and obsolete fade and there is something deeper taking their place: Emotion.

20 - 30 Different Key Chains

I can't stand carrying everything and having my pockets full. I've tried over 20+ different key chains and I'm done looking. These are the best. Well made, solid, beautiful materials. PLUS you can interchange them. You won't regret these.
