Silver Piston is run by a friendly chap by the name of Steve West based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Steve is a silversmith and an avid motorcyclist who’s become well-known for his unique Buffalo nickel and Indian Head nickel rings, and in recent years he’s branched out into making wedding bands, custom Zippo lighters, keyrings, necklaces, and money clips.
Each Silver Piston Money Clip is made from nickel and has a genuine buffalo nickel soldered to it, It’s then oxidized to give it a well-worn finish that will continue to develop its own character over time. It measures in at 1 inch wide and can hold anything from a thin to a thick wad of notes.
