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?

  • Very smart and stylish design
  • 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.

M-Clip Rhodium Cocobolo Wood

M-Clip Money Clips Review | M-Clip Rhodium Cocobolo WoodAn exquisite money clip, made out rhodium-plated metal with gorgeous Cocobolo hardwood inlays. The combination of rhodium and Cocobolo epitomizes M-Clip’s notion of working with the highest quality materials available.

Price: $$$

  • Good for any occasion
  • Materials more expensive so reflected in the price

M-Clip Ultralight V Series – natural

M-Clip Stingray

M-Clip Money Clips Review | M-Clip StingrayThis is yet another of M-Clip’s compelling material combinations. (We included its friend, the Rodeo Dark Blue Alligator in our review of 5 of the Top Money Clips).

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?

  • A great gift for groomsmen, father’s day, graduation, birthdays
  • Makes a money clip unique
  • Looks attractive
