M-Clip money clips review

The M-Clip brand is wonderful, so much so that we decided to put together an M-Clip review…

Coming in a selection of different materials and finishes, these money clips are seriously beautiful objects – and they work very well. The multi-patented product has a simple to use sliding lever function that locks the clip securely. Here’s what M-Clip have to say:

“The World’s Finest Money Clip” and “Finally, A Money Clip that Works” … these are the registered trademarks and descriptions that we take very seriously about our product.”

Why choose an M-Clip money clip?

  • High quality – constructed and assembled entirely by hand
  • They work very well
  • Have a good capacity (approx 8-10 bills and 6-8 credit cards)
  • XL versions of some with extra large capacity (approx 20 bills and 1-12 credit cards)

We looked into a selection of materials and finishes in this M-Clip review and discussed the pros and cons for each model.

Money Clamp review and comparison

Why choose a Money Clamp?

  • Slim – doesn’t take up much room in the pocket
  • Works well with a small or large amount of bills and cards
  • Wallet part keeps cards separate and neatly organized
  • Can be used with or without the wallet

Money Clamp Zurich Gunmetal with wallet

Money Clamp Zurich Gunmetal with walletRobust and industrial looking, the Zurich version is the priciest model in the Money Clamp range. It seems somewhat appropriate that it’s named after Zurich, Europe’s most affluent city.

This Money Clamp comes supplied with with a black stamped Congo Croc Leather wallet and is shipped in a stylish black leather gift box.

Pros: Robust, made from Nickel-plated zinc alloy, good capacity
Cons: Heavier than the other Money Clamp models

Money Clamp Geneva with wallet

Money Clamp Geneva with walletWe included the Money Clamp Geneva in our Review of 5 of the Best Money Clips, on the homepage of the website.

The Geneva range is Money Clamp’s most popular and well known. It’s an excellent budget option and at around $35 represents excellent value.

One of the best things about Money Clamps is that they work equally well with the leather wallet in the middle or with bills only. This particular model includes a slim Cabretta Leather wallet (in black).

Pros: streamlined design, slim, light, good capacity
Cons: some owners have pointed out that with the edge of the clamp being close to the end of the card holder it can make it a bit tricky to open at times

Money Clamp Milan Gunmetal with wallet

Money Clamp Milan Gunmetal with walletThe Milan Money Clamp in gunmetal is both sleek and sophisticated. It’s a little bit heavier but marginally lighter than the Geneva model.

The nickel-plated zinc alloy clamp comes with slim leather wallet, where you can store cards, receipts, photos and other important items.

Pros: streamlined design, slim, light, made from Nickel-plated zinc alloy, good capacity
Cons: Quite a bit more expensive than the Geneva range

Money Clamp Geneva Mini Mesh with wallet

Money Clamp Geneva Mini Mesh with walletAt a fraction of the size and almost half the weight of the Geneva, the aptly named Geneva Mini performs just as well as the larger version.

Some people actually prefer the mini version due to the length / location of the edge of the clamp. With it not being as long certain users find it easier to unclamp than the standard Geneva version.

Like the Geneva, the Mini comes with slim Cabretta Leather wallet (in black).

Pros: smallest money clamp, slim, super light, good capacity, very good value
Cons: smaller clamp may be a bit trickier for somebody with unsteady hands to open

Conclusion

There’s something for everyone in the Money Clamp range. Both budget and higher end options use the same clamping mechanism but vary in size, weight, material and price. A lot of it is down to personal preference and taste. One thing that all of these models offer is versatility – they will perform equally well, with or without the wallet clamped in the middle.

Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip

Victorinox Swiss Army Money ClipWe also featured the Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip in our Cool Money Clips Review.

Made in Switzerland by Victorinox, this Swiss Army Money Clip is a reinvention of the classic Swiss Army Knife. A compact and efficient unit, it measures just 3″ in length (closed). With a money clip on the back and 3 pull out tools, you’ll find this a highly useful pocket tool.

Manufactured to the highest of standards, this product is of superior quality to the competition and comes with a lifetime warranty. It represents great value for money.

These products are built to last and they perform as they should.

Tools included: knife, scissors, nail file

Overall verdict: A superb, high quality multi-functional tool, made by Victorinox, creators of the original Swiss Army Knife.

Delk 5 in 1 Stainless Steel Money Clip

Delk 5 in 1 Stainless Steel Money ClipIf your budget doesn’t quite stretch as far as the Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip you could consider the Delk 5 in 1 Stainless Steel Money Clip. It’s a fraction of the price and comes with the same tools: knife, scissors, file and money clip. There is also a flathead screwdriver with this model, something that the Victorinox lacks. However, don’t expect the same build quality as the Victorinox.

Tools included: knife, scissors, nail file, flathead screwdriver

Overall verdict: Handy little tool. Good value for money and contains more tools than any of the other models we’ve compared. Not the same build quality as the Victorinox though.

Sanrenmu LB-763 Folding Pocket Knife

Sanrenmu LB-763 Folding Pocket KnifeWe’ve included this Sanrenmu model as another alternative to the Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip. It is however more of a pocket knife, as you’ll see from the size and shape of the blade. Certainly useful for somebody who spends a lot of time outdoors. Again, as with the Delk product – you won’t get the same quality as the Victorinox but if you’re looking for a budget option, it’s worth some attention.

And if the knife is the most important feature for you, then something with a larger blade, like this is where you should be focusing. There’s also the added bonus of a bottle opener, so you’ll never be stuck for cracking a cold one open!

Tools included: knife, bottle opener

Overall verdict: Decent knife for the money, with a bottle opener. Money clip can be used to clip knife onto pocket too. Good budget option.

Klein Money Clip Pocket Knife

Klein Money Clip Pocket KnifeIn our opinion, the Klein Money Clip Pocket Knife is the only genuine alternative to the Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip. It’s a high quality, nice looking and robust product that contains a money clip and two tools: a knife and nail file. The only tool it lacks is the scissors – so if you need / want a pair of scissors, look elsewhere.

If the lack of scissors is not a deal breaker for you, the Klein Money Clip Pocket Knife should be on your shortlist and under serious consideration.

Tools included: knife, nail file

Overall verdict: Genuine alternative to the Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip – just lacks the scissors. Excellent quality and backed by lifetime warranty on material defects and workmanship.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a pocket knife / money clip combo there are options to suit different budgets. The Victorinox Swiss Army Money Clip won’t be beaten on quality and value for money though. There is, however, an alternative that can compete, if you don’t need scissors – the Klein Money Clip Pocket Knife.

Engraved money clips

There are two main types of engraved money clips: personalized ones and then those with graphical designs.

Personalized money clips tend to have the owner’s initials or name engraved onto the surface. Graphical engraved designs range from geometric and mathematical patterns to more artistic impressions of animals and scenes from nature.

Engraved money clips are usually produced from a sort of metal. With solid gold and solid silver used for higher end money clips. More budget money clips for engraving come in steel, titanium and gold / silver-plated metal.

Personalized money clips are popular as gifts for special occasions. For example, groomsmen may all receive a money clip as their gift. What the groom may choose to do is have them personalized by engraving each one with the groomsman’s initials.

Gifting a money clip means giving somebody a useful, functional item that they can use on a day-to-day basis. And if you choose to have their name or initials engraved it makes it that bit extra special. An engraved money clip can serve as a memento.

Why choose an engraved money clip?

  • Makes a money clip unique
  • Looks attractive
