In the 1970s, hero-worship was so much simpler.
When doubters told Evel Knievel in 1974 that the Skycycle X-2 rocket couldn’t jump him across Snake River Canyon, they were right. We didn’t care; points for trying. Over the course of a death-defying (some would say, death-taunting) career spanning over 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps, he faced all 433 of his broken bones with a resolve to either break the same bone again or break something different, whether a ridiculous world record or his meat-bag body.
As it turned out, the outcome was the best(?) of both worlds. He ultimately earned a Guinness World Record for “most broken bones in a lifetime”.
He always carefully calculated the odds that his stunts would actually be successful against the chances he was doing something incredibly stupid and reckless. Nearly every time, he went ahead and did it, anyway.
The only thing Evel Knievel couldn’t defeat? Pulmonary disease, amazingly. That’s why we’re proud to honor him with the Viva Knievel Men’s Bifold Wallet. This nostalgic accessory salutes the legacy of history’s greatest daredevil with a die-cut faux leather design sporting star detailing inspired by his signature jumpsuit, Evel Knievel’s debossed “EK” initials on the front, and an embroidered signature inside. The wallet includes a billfold compartment, ID window, and three card slots.
Just like the craziest death-defier the world has ever known, this is a billfold built to last.
