Topic: The Peek Wallet as your every day wallet...Anyone?
Message: Posted by: RealityIsDeception (May 13, 2009 02:56PM)
As my every day wallet, I use the Stealth Assassin peek wallet. For the past two years, I've used this and had some great results. I've heard of Evil Dan's wallets, but I'm not familiar with them. Does anyone here use a peek wallet as your every day wallet? When your talking about magic at a moment's notice, I think, hands down, the peek wallet with a mental prediction is an absolute killer! Any thoughts?

I have too many things in my regular wallet, so I carry two when expected to perform. My real wallet gets worn after about a year, and I'd would not feel it would be nice looking enough to display when performing.

I use the Hideout Wallet from Outlaw. I love the fact that I can use it as my everyday wallet, there's no suspicion whatsoever when it's time to use it.

I use the Stealth as an everyday wallet and like that it's a little beat up. Although I initially had problems with the lack of space for bills and receipts, I've adjusted. I have thought of switching to the Hideout although, conversely, I've worried that after getting used to the smaller size of the Stealth that the Hideout may feel too big. Can anyone let me know the measurements of the Hideout?

My hideout is around 4.5" x 4"

Here's my vote for the Stealth Assassin. I've been using my as my every day wallet for over 3 years now. This way I know I can do a solid routine at a moments notice - totally "impromptu"

How are you guys justifying the wallet to your spectators? I've only used the SAW prop when performing for other magicians as they're used to seeing "proppy" objects.

I have a custome made peek wallet that I use as an everyday wallet. Based on the S.U.C.

Not sure what you mean. I have the SAW and there's no justification. It's my everyday wallet, packed with credit cards, money hanging out. I leave it lying around the house all the time, take it out to pay at restaurants, etc. No one has ever suspected it.

I used to use my Kaps on Fire wallet as my everyday wallet, with a small change made so I can use the coin slot for coins without destroying the ability to do the standard card to wallet with it.

I only loaded it with lighter fluid if I was planning on going out though


After a while the leather started to come off, so I switched back to a normal wallet.

I use the Jardonnet Kaps on Fire wallet as my everyday wallet. They start to look pretty beat up after about a year.I then replace it. That's $40.00 per year to be able to carry a fire wallet, peek wallet and card to wallet. Not a bad investment!

I actually carry my wallet(s) in my book bag. I carry a couple with me at all times and pull out what I need when needed. Too fuss :) and no one is the wiser. Additionally, my pants nor my wallet(s) get wore out quickly!

What about using your everyday wallet for tricks that other magicians believe to require a tricked wallet: card to wallet was explained by Jean Eugene Robert Houdin for performance with a regular wallet...

An elegant wallet by a fashion designer will always look nicer and the fact that it will gained elegance and patina as it's used on an everyday basis cancels out any potential suspicion by any spectator.

Having had a hideout wallet for a few wks now, its just as good as a normal wallet as it is a tricked up one. So much space. Stuff it with packet effects, multiple out effects and still have space for your cash and credit cards! And the peek is so so devious. Right in front of their face. Nice!

Ringing in a wallet to do mentalism is what I was talking about. Plus, the style of the SAW doesn't look like a regular wallet here in the states.

Hey Doug - I open the wallet and grab a biz card out, get the spec to draw something, then pop it back in the wallet. Flick over to grab another biz card to dupe the drawing while getting my p*** at the same time. Hope that makes sense! People don't seem to question it. I just don't mention what I'm going to do with the card befoe I do it.

Uh... I'm in the US and I carry the Stealth Assassin wallet in my back pocket as my real wallet everyday. It has credit cards, drivers license, business cards and a couple of reciepts in it (never cash). It looks like my everyday wallet because it is, but it's not tattered, I care for it. I keep a clean wallet and like to keep it as slim as possible. My preference for everyday use is a back pocket wallet instead of a jacket pocket wallet.
In fact, I'm a bit of a wallet snob and I retired a perfectly good and expensive, leather Bally wallet when I switched to this one.
It's a great wallet for everyday use and the peek gimmick is extraordinary! I love this wallet, but I don't need a signed card to wallet type of wallet, because I do Peter Nardi's Extractor and don't need the wallet for a card revelation. Extractor is just too hard to beat and the wallet would dillute the effect - IMO.
