When roaming the islands, we like to travel light. Preferably board shorts, slippers and that's about it...less than that and we tend to get the stink-eye but I digress. Unfortunately, the need has arisen for something to carry the mounds of cards and cash required to navigate this modern jungle. Born out of necessity, and 2 years in the making, our Sherpa wallets carry everything you could need with the minimal esthetic we love. Add the most amazing curly Koa wood from the Big Island...and you have a hand made, one of a kind expression of Island style.
- Trigger button ejects 1-6 cards for easy access
- Aluminum RFID blocking hard case
- Elastic pocket securely holds cash and small items
Legendary Big Island Koa, Hand finished, laser cut, inked and assembled in our Shop in Honolulu, HI. If you've never used a small wallet like this, it allows you to conveniently carry in the front pocket which is much less likely to be picked...perfect for travel.
An elegant solution...Everything in its place and a place for everything. If it doesn't fit, you probably don't need it. The slide button on the bottom pops up your cards making them easy to access. Rigid space to protect 6 cards...elastic pocket for cash and the necessities.
Well the party is certainly rocking the Koa inlay in the front...the business end allows you to carry cash, more cards or whatever your little heart desires.
A ton of work goes into getting you the perfect wallet...here's the rundown...I hand pick every piece of Koa for amazing grain patterns which I then hand sand, finish with water-based poly, laser cut, sip a beer, etch a design, apply ink and assemble. Like I said, pretty much ridiculousness...but it makes a super unique wallet.
We laser engrave and cut our hand finished Koa wood inserts at our small shop in Honolulu. Someday we'll move out of the basement and raise the price, but my wife hasn't kicked me out yet.
my marketing efforts too over the top? absolutely...they don't let me out of the shop much but we stand behind it. Didn't like it? You can be the first...we'll refund your money and ship it back on our dime.
Been looking for a wallet for a couple years now and I finally found the “right” one. My old leather one was so worn out it was falling apart….BUT…When I received this wallet, I fell in love with it right away. Perfect size, Awesome curly koa and the design…so intricate & priceless. Holds everthing I need! Brett…you got me hooked!
We have purchased many products from Pono Woodworks and we are always pleased with the quality and beauty of their work. Their customer service is excellent as well. Mahalo!
I lost my prior wallet, and this one was definitely an upgrade. It is nice and easy to get my cards out, and I also have some loose bills in there as well.
I really like the Sherpa Koa Wood wallet as I previously owned the minimalist wallet but wearing out since had a very long time. I like that here is a button on the top to pull out the credit cards and it separates them so can grab the one you want and little less bulk without the money clip. Love the new wallet!! Mahalo!!

The wallets are beautiful but not what I thought I had ordered.
I thought I had ordered 1 turtle and 1 plain, which is not what I received.
I received 1 with the Hawaiian Islands and 1 with multiple designs, the fish being the primary one.
that's embarrassing. I'll send out the correct ones today with a return label for the wrong ones. Sorry about that.
