Last month I chatted with Monarch Mods co-founder Philip Wolff to talk about the company’s new Virtue mechanical mod. This made-in-the-USA mech targets the high-end market, packs some unique features, and boasts outstanding presentation. The initial model is available in brushed or polished stainless steel. The contact points are silver-plated copper for some hard-hitting performance. The top cap is extremely thin, for an elegant look that’s hybrid-like. The firing mechanism — probably my favorite aspects of the Monarch Mods Virtue — has a recessed button with an extremely short throw, a feathery-light feel, and a locking mechanism that requires a short turn. The mod comes in a wooden box that’s filled with shredded leather. The prototype I saw was beautiful and well-made — definitely one of the finest made-in-America mods that I’ve seen.
