The method and effect are wonderful along with the size. My only issue would be the construction of
a wallet of this price range ($120.00). Single stitched and after two weeks of owning it, the
plastics have already since dried, cracked and split along the folds. Bummer.

OK! First off, this is by far the best magic wallet I have ever bought.
The wallet as a
The binding is perfect, the material is fine, and there are many compartments. Only
downside, some of the slots in the wallet that look like they fit credit cards, do not. Aside from
that, it is wonderful.
The wallet as a tool. 5/5
It does exactly what Menny says it
does, and well! How about that, an honest magician!

I wish people would actually use the trick before writing a review. All these 5 star reviews are
based on very first impressions.
Try to put your debit cards in the slots. Yeah, only two
of the three fit okay while the third is funky.
Now try to put bills inside the wallet.
Yeah, the bills don't even fit! You literally have to fold the bills in half for them to fit in the
wallet. What kind of jank is that?!
The method and trick are great, but don't expect to
walk around and use this as an actual wallet. It's limited in that capacity -- which is laughable
considering the price.
Cheap lather, single weak stitching, and the cheapest,
I can't beat that fact into the review enough. Great trick, but
awful quality. If you have money to burn, it's a good trick. Just know who ever released this trick
is getting over on every one. I've seen Gucci wallets for this price.
Who ever put this
wallet together should be ashamed. You didn't even make it big enough to fit money! D'oh!

When I received the item, my suspicion was that (without exposing too much of the method) the
mechanical wear of the plastic would last about 8 weeks before it breaks the bend (given it is quite
hard foil, I am sure there are more flexible material options if one is willing to manufacture a
Turns out, I was way too optimistic. After just two weeks and less than
20 performances, the bend is completely teared and broken.
Which would be fine in a China
ripoff for 3 bucks, but at this price tag I was sort of hoping for a utility device that would last
me a while.
I thought I was the only one with just bad luck, but at least some other
reviewers and commenters appear to have experienced the same issues. And I feel there are more of
Somehow it seems strange that a product like this should not have been prototyped and
tested extensively for wear and tear before rolling it out.
keliopenshaw, keep us updated
whether there is any hope in having the thing replaced. And Penguin, let us know when you put out a
version 1.2 of the wallet with a different and more thoroughly tested choice of materials.

I got this and did the trick right away. The method is easy, undetectable, and simply fantastic.
For me, no more struggling with the Center Tear. This wallet IS a game changer. The fact that the
spectator's card seemingly remains folded is HUGE. My disappointment was the wallet as an everyday
wallet. Solid construction, but simply awkward. The cash compartment is too small, making putting
in or taking out cash a pain. This is kind of basic for a wallet! Holds too few credit cards. But,
the trick is fantastic. Thanks for the great new method.

this will amaze your spectator(s). Very easy to do and no suspicious moves at all.
Buy it. You
won't be sorry.

I'd also wager it's a 4.5. To the reviewer that said the stuff about the credit card, it actually
does fit credit cards nicely. It just takes some time. Once you force them in the first time it fits
perfectly. The biggest problem with the wallet is the number of credit card slots. There's far too
few. Besides that, I've already replaced it as my every day wallet. I like how slim it is.

Rarely do you feel this sense of "wow, this is worth so much more than I just paid for it". This
gimmick so delivers and I am so happy I bought it. Should probably buy a second one to have as a

the idea is ok, but wallet's quality is not ok.
I'm not sure if only mine is not good so I
emailed penguin 3 times for checking my wallet but no answer. very disappointed!!

I own many peak wallets and this is the worse quality mentalism wallet I own. Don't waste your
money on this - Instead buy an Assassin which will last you years and years. The quality is so much
better. Sorry I ever wasted money on this cheaply made wallet. Last time I buy any product put out
