Abacus Totem Key Holder
Made in Japan

*comes in a cotton canvas case
A brass rod key holder with screw-on closure at one end. This key holder is beautifully handmade one-by-one in Japan. The main benefit of using this style of key holder instead of a traditional ring is that keys can be organized on the rod from most to least used, and you can easily find the exact key needed just by feel. As well, you will find the rod design fits comfortably and compactly in your hand, whereas with a ring, the keys will spread out in every direction, making it more difficult to hold.
The colour of brass will gradually turn to a deeper gold over time and use, while creating a rich character of patina. Because it’s a tool you use every day, it’s designed to fit in your hand comfortably.
Please re-tighten the screws from time to time, as they may loosen with use, but be careful not to overtighten them with excessive force as that may damage the screws. Due to the characteristics of brass, the colour will gradually change over time, but can be lightly polished with a soft, dry cloth.

Born out of a passion for the beauty of everyday objects, Postalco found its start in Brooklyn, New York, making notebooks and document holders. Since moving their base of operations to Tokyo 20 years ago, the line has expanded to include wallets, pens, bags and other items. Combining utility and functionality with understated beauty, Postalco effectively improves our relationships with these objects by inviting us to see them as “collaborators” in our lives instead of as throwaway items.
With a solid dedication to finding new ways to apply Japanese craft to daily life, Postalco creates items that are meant to be used by all walks of life – young and old, male or female – a practice that results in building more meaningful interactions with others and with our surroundings.
