The Karben Wallet Review
A Wallet that is not all that it seems
The Karben Wallet is a small-sized plate wallet similar to the likes of the Ridge Wallet. Credit/debit cards are stored within two plates of what their website suggests are carbon fiber and aluminum. Today we’re going to discuss the Karben Wallet and see if it’s worth the money and ask the question if this wallet really is what it seems.
The first thing to note about the Karben Wallet is its awful website. The website itself looks like it was made in 10 minutes and gives me personally zero confidence that buying from them, is neither a wise choice nor one that you should attempt. The website is like something out of the 90s that screams ‘You’re our 1 millionth customer’ which isn’t great.
The wallet itself, on paper, hosts a wide variety of different features. First, we need to talk about the material of the wallet. The first thing to note is that the Karben Wallet is not made out of real carbon fiber, but a cheap and fake imitation. This is a big issue with companies shouting that their product is made from such material but more often than not it’s just not true. Carbon Fiber is an expensive material and most of these wallets, The Karben included, are lying to you. If the price is too good to be true then it usually is.
Overall I would avoid the Karben Wallet. Its overall look and design are too similar to many of the ‘Copycat Wallets’ we’ve reviewed in the past and this is likely a knock-off wallet bought directly from China. Not only this but reviews on the platform Trust Pilot (which currently has a low total score of 2.3) show that it’s nearly impossible to get hold of the brand and they refuse to process any kind of refund. A poor website experience, high costs (£80.00 without discounts), and the inability to return the wallet? A whole host of red flags showcase the shady practices of the people behind the Karben Wallet. We recommend you avoid this wallet.
A misleading wallet that is nothing unique. Mass-produced in China the Karben wallet is nothing more than a quick cash grab from its founders trying to make a profit from misleading customers. If it’s too good to be true, it usually is. We recommend looking else where.
