Peek Note Wallet – Secret Tannery

Product description: Guys, you know how much I like good quality products, such as really nicely made gimmick coins, brass things or leather gears. Secret Tannery is an outstanding company which produces wallets for the working magician. They had the Rebel & Rebel Note wallets which were awesome (still using mine by the way) and they have now produced the Peek & Peek Note Wallet, which allow you to peek something written down on a blank piece of paper. It’s made incredibly well and works a treat, let’s dive into this review.

Price and where to buy it: This is sold at 100€ and you can find it here https://www.secrettannery.com/product-page.

What you get: You get a nice cardboard box, which was missing in the previous wallet I think. Here, you get a real finished product with a designed packaging. Inside, wrapped in paper, is the wallet. The leather is the same high quality as the Rebel Note one along with the blue stitching. It’s a 2 fold, 3 “windows” wallet which can be shown front and back without exposing the gimmick. You’re also provided with an explanation video which is a bit too short in my opinion, it could have been longer with more routine but I’m a bit nit picky on this one. The wallet is small enough to be carried in your pocket but it has still room inside to put several credit card. Overall, this is a really nice product which will fit into many magician’s repertoire, because it can used as your everyday life wallet and also as a powerful magic tool.

The pros and the cons: Here is the core of my review, let's begin with the cons, as I will usually be doing, I prefer to keep the good things for the end.

THE CONS:
As I said, I would have liked the explanation video to be longer and with more routines inside, I know many will be buying this knowing what they want to do with it but I really liked the Rebel video and I was hoping more.

THE PROS:
The leather on this is so nice, I like everything about it, the smell, the feel and it looks luxurious too. This is something important because I want people to see I’m using quality item.
The peek is ingenious, this is different from the peek wallet he already released a few month ago because this can be shown both side without any fear of exposing the peek.
You have a lot of room to place your bills, credit cards and business cards, which means this can easily be used as your card holder.
The peek is very interesting because it’s direct and you get a full view on it. No reflection are used and the peek can be obtained just with the action of moving the wallet on the table.

Overall rating: Quality, easy to do, full and direct peek what else are you looking for? I love Secret Tannery more and more, they are on a roll, 4/4 hearts.

As for the difficulty level, the peek is easy to obtain, you just have to construct your routine and you’re good to go, 2/5 stars.

Similar products: I like a lot the Viper 2 Peek Wallet from Mindbox, which is also amazing.

I'm just going to copy and paste a PM I sent to a fellow Café member about this wallet.
(Omitting all the XOXO's I sent him of course)

"This is a really (!)nice wallet.
Well made, understated and quality. No magnets on the peek, but it actually doesn't need them. If I had the choice, I'd not choose to have them now.
The hype is on the money this time.
Nothing new or earth shattering, just very well done.
What people say about the peek is also right on. It just feels "right".
At $115.00 this is a deal. Only thing I'd add would be an SUC...maybe."


Very, very, happy with this purchase.

I have a rebel on the way. I’ve been using their version of the Jaks (peek) that I picked up at Tannens. Love it. The quality of leather as well as the classy nature of the wallet, especially the blue stitching is gold. I ordered an extra one since I like it so much.

Note again that Secret Tannery has both a Rebel Card to Wallet and two excellent peek wallets. Of the latter, this one is NOT their Jaks wallet! The quality is exactly the same as has already been noted for both their CTW and their JAKS wallet, which is to say it's probably the best of any wallet on the market.

Two things I'd mention that should be stressed:

1) it has an actual functioning bill compartment, which functions just like one in a normal wallet.

2) This is not a Swiss Army type wallet that does all sorts of things. In this case, that's a big plus and why what it does do - the peek - is so perfect. Nothing really new, just better made than any previous wallet.

I'm someone who has been a wallet junkie and owned almost all of them at one time or another. This one got it right. That doesn't mean it replaces all the others, which often have different, necessary functions. E.g., I carry a whole close-up act in my larger MindSpy Wallet. In very different ways, Caper Case and Mark Strivings' SUC wallet are perfect business card cases. Wallets which index have a decided function. And so on. And I still don't use this one to replace my day-to-day, non-magic wallet. For me though, this one is perfect for a delayed design duplication peek, as part of a 3-4 effect routine, all carried in the wallet. Plus, it's so beautiful!
