I read reviews on this item before purchasing it but didn't quite understand. The metal is solid-check. It holds lots of cards - check. Heavy, feels good in your hands - check. Looks good and makes a good impression - check. Stays shut and protects your business cards - NO. The problem isn't a defective unit. The problem is the design.
I expected that the lid work something like a zippo lighter. After all, the similarities in appearance are too many to discuss. The lid instead, is held "closed" through friction. If you look very carefully at the picture on Amazon, you'll see to the side opposite the hing a metal tooth coming out of the case. That tooth is ever so slightly angled so that the lid fits over it and then pulls against it. One might think of it as a sort of doorstop? Anyways, initially, the lid stays closed.

To me it's honestly NOT that big of a deal because if you handle it, just like a touchscreen phone, of course it's going to get fingerprints on it. If you can't stand the thought of fingerprints then search...
I love the size, initial look and feel, but after handling it for 2-3 minutes, I realized it was going to be impossible to keep fingerprints off of it. If you buy this one, be prepared to constantly wipe off finger prints. It is an impressive, initial first impression when handing someone a card from your business card holder, but be aware to keep it looking nice and new, you'll have to give it constant TLC.
