THE WORLD'S THINNEST SHADOW WALLET that packs an ENTIRE close up act!
(Even fully loaded with gimmicks, credit cards and cash it is 1/2 inch or 1 cm thick!)

"It incorporates a solid and reliable peek that allows you to view 99% of a business card - no funny moves or reversed images so you can reveal literally ANYTHING! And the strongest and smartest version of a named card in wallet I've ever seen. "
- Alexander Marsh

2 SHADOW WALLET versions:

Carbon Fiber

Leather
https://www.murphysmagic.com/Product.aspx?id=68968

"Dee's shadow wallet should be every magicians EDC. It's rare you find something stylish that you will be proud to use as an everyday wallet, that packs an entire close up act. This is a huge achievement. Razor was sharp but it has now been shadowed by this new offering. I wholeheartedly recommend Shadow Wallet for anyone that wants to read minds."
- Joel Dickinson

* Multiple ingenious gimmicks, even cards are included!
* 2 HOURS of instruction including thought of card routines, peeks, and even a book test.
* Loads of tips, tricks and advice for all skill levels.

Not sure if this claim is true "Carbon Fibre Edition: The first magic wallet ever produced in real carbon fibre". But this seems pretty good.

Seeing as this wallet is VERY similar in design to my current regular wallet, I'm very curious. Will keep an eye out for reviews when this has shipped.

Hey man. I know you donít know me and you have no reason to believe me but I promise you Iím being 100% honest.

Iíve built the reputation of my channel on honest reviews. I considered Peter Eggink a friend but I still told the world how awful CTG was.

I almost wish there was a bad trick in the line up so I could have trashed it!!!

Like I say you donít know me but I promise Iím telling the truth.

The quality of the trailer I have just watched is excellent. Well done to all involved. It is a shame not all trailers are as good and as extensive as the ones shown.

Craig has already indicated how good the instructions are and I can well believe they are.

Can someone please tell us more about the Peek that is used with this?

I have noticed the big window on the front but does it come with a pr****y fi***r (like telethought wallet)?
Or is it just very bold? Can a spectator put a card inside the wallet and have a look at it from all (or nearly all) sides?

Regarding the i***x, does it use 6 cards of regular thickness?

The trailer was quite enjoyable! Guess I need to buy this for Le Vals DD idea of the memory box alone. 👏

Hey Everyone!

Great questions ArtIn - regards the peek, if you have seen my razor wallet, it is much the same, albeit the window is a little bigger here. The ID window on the back of the wallet does come with a perfectly cut privacy filter. So, it is easy to take in and out of the wallet as and when you want to, but it fits nice and snug so it wonít fall out by mistake.

We teach handlings with and without the filter - I have found that filters are great in well lit situations, but I spent most of my walk around career performing in clubs and bars, which are often quite dark. Lewis is one of the co-owners of a magic bar in Liverpool as well, which is also low lit. You CAN use a filter in those environments, but personally I find it a little more difficult to get my peek... So, I teach a handling that I use, in which the wallet can be shown all around with no chance of them seeing anything, yet you can still get your peek when you need to and Lewis doesnít bother using anything to cover the peek except his audience management skills as heís a rebel without a cause, itís all covered in the masterclass.

We do both teach handlings where the wallet is placed in the hands of the participant during the routine, but I would not recommend having them place the card inside the wallet themselves. while this might feel fair on paper, it does not flow very well theatrically, you could risk them placing the card in the wrong pocket, the card could snag on the edge of the pocket if their aim is not the best and finally, they might discover the index. You can show the wallet empty, with or without cash in there (We made the index in such a way that it can hide in between bills too) and place it in their hands in the context of a routine, but it canít be examined thoroughly, I would never have my wallet examined by an audience member though anyway, even if it had no sneaky secret business built in!

I hope that covers everything!

My team and I worked hard on this for a long time to ensure that every thing is as perfect as it can be. While the wallet is based on a common design that screams innocence, we had it built from the ground up. Even the credit card pockets are a couple of millimetres wider than usual so you can stick packet tricks in there if you so desire!

Really, what Iím trying to say with all the above, is that there is no need to worry. Everything is completely covered! Smile

Hi Dee. You wrote: "We do both teach handlings where the wallet is placed in the hands of the participant during the routine".

Will these handlings work when you are working without a filter?

@Dafin77 :: Sure, you could use any of the methods described. Placing it in their hands is more of a theatrical moment, so the method is inconsequential.

For instance, this act makes use of their hands, but I could peek in any way that feels right.

That was with Razor, but it would work with shadow too. Also, in the video at the bottom of the below page, Lewis makes use of the hands of the participant in his handling:

(Scroll down to the bottom and there is second video. Lewisí performance is third, towards the end.)

Both of those videos are without the filter! Smile

Hi Craig I wasnít referring to you, in fact yours is one of the few reviews I trust . I recently purchased the excellent Magnet 0 after seeing it on your show especially your idea of using it with a mem deck that was genius.

Sent Dee a couple of questions via email and he answered more than I expected, very open. Always like when a creators is so open about their product, screams confidence with it. I'll be getting this, in fact so far all their products look good.

I carry it in my front pocket, but itíll fit anywhere - itís less than half an inch this when fully loaded with credit cards, cash etc.

Hope that helps!

This looks very interesting. As usual, always best to wait for unbiased reviews from people who paid for the product, but it certainly seems to have a lot of useful features in a very compact, natural looking wallet.

Telethought wallet had the only decent 3m filter all the others have been poor in comparison and can be seen through from all
angles . No one except Chris Kenworthy seems to be able to get this filter and the razor I know had the poor filter in just like the Pandora V2 and is a waste of space so you can pretty much forget using the filter unless they have sourced Chrisís stuff again . I have owned them all and can compare them side by side telethought you can only see any thing from behind it ( so is perfect ) all the others spectators to the side will easily see the work too and even from the front on occasions Gaz 😊

If a product is that good why is there a need to pre sale it

Why not just let it stand on its own merits when ready for sale !

Gotta get those pre-sale orders in!

I miss the old days. Too much dishonesty and hustling involved in magic and Mentalism in this brave new world. There has always been false advertising but at least you could go into a magic shop and see a full demo or get a look at the product in-person; and you didn't have multiple friends of the creator coming round to your house to tell you how great something was and encouraging you to buy it -even though they didn't.

As you say, Jack, if a product is good, word will spread. It won't need pre-sale hype on here and on YouTube. The cream always rises. (Unless it's in a book, obviously).

Rick Roth also used very fine filters with his products at Outlaw-Effects.
He also shared some valuable ideas to use these filters more professionally.
Something I didnít seen elsewhere.

Unfortunately it seems that he is not in the business anymore. Smile

I appreciate the honesty and openness with Shadow Wallet here.
