Real alligator leather lends a true gentlemans touch to any activity. This genuine alligator bi-fold wallet is another example of the unique items we manage to find through our contact with folks from all walks of life. This particular gem is handmade by an orthopedic surgeon and is offered in a rich caramel brown color. He starts with the finest calf skin wallets available and then sews the expertly tanned hide to it which comes from wild, monster Florida gators. This hide is 2-3 times thicker than the skins of small farm raised animals. Alligators grow very quickly until they reach about 36 in length but it takes them more than a decade to grow to 10 feet. Thus commercial farms typically harvest much smaller animals than these as they cannot afford to feed gators for an extended period of time. Our hunter Doc only takes mature, trophy sized gators and their hide offers much greater durability since their scales are fully formed and staggered to resist cracking better than smaller gators that typically have scales in a row which form a seam prone to failure. The pieces shown came from a gator that was over 11 feet long. Measuring 4 ½x 3 ½ closed, our wallet offers multiple card slots.
