Awesome wallet, but beware sweat! Report this review

As a switching wallet, this is typical amazing thinking on Docc's part. It's worth it not only for the wallet, but also Docc's routines and misdirection tips.
This was my first eelskin wallet, and I discovered one thing to watch for: I had the wallet for a few hours in a back pocket of a pair of thin wool dress pants. I was in a very warm environment and ended up sweating pretty heavily. When I took the Serpent out of my pocket later I saw that the side of the wallet that had been closest to my body (and through just a few layers of thin and porous fabric) had wrinkled horribly from the moisture. It was better once it had dried out, but that side never again had the smooth surface of the other parts of the wallet.
That was an extreme situation as normally I wouldn't be sweating that heavily with the Serpent in my pocket, but it's something to maybe take into consideration if you work in warm places.

I bought another one, so obviously I like this wallet! One of them I left just as it is, and the second one I "doctored" a little. Basically, I cut out a big rectangular hole behind the ID window so that I can also use it as a peek wallet. The wallet is great for switching, but I wanted a good peek window too, so I decided to make one. If you decide to do it, be careful.

First of all, the is a very cool wallet even just as a regular wallet! As a switch wallet, it is something that you will have to play around and practice with. My own complaint is that it would have been so easy to have made it a peek wallet as well as a switching wallet. My routine is, I first have them close their eyes and imagine a blank screen and let whatever image comes to their mind appear on that screen, let me know when they have something, but don't tell me what it is, etc. Then I pull out my wallet and take out a business card and put it face down on the table and ask them if they would be amazed if the picture they were imagining was on the back of the business card. It is only a gag to introduce the effect of course. "Well draw it on there then", I say. If you deliver the line right, it should get a laugh or at least a smile. Then I have them draw their picture (so they can't change their mind) and then put the card face down on the table (the fact that I had already put the card face down on the table in the same spot and manner in which I want them to during the gag intro serves as a nonverbal suggestion). I ask them to confirm that they have put the card face down on the table so that I can turn around (this ensures that they do actually put it on the table rather than hold on to it which would make the trick impossible). I casually slide it under my wallet "so I can't see anything". THIS is why I LOVE this wallet...because I don't have to pick the card up (I just slide it about an inch on the surface of the table) and I don't put it IN the wallet (just under it). Then (the switch is already done but I don't know what they drew yet) I ask them to concentrate on that image in their mind and send it to me. I act like I'm trying to receive an impression and then like I'm starting to get something. I pick up the wallet to take out another card to draw on and put the wallet back on top of "their card" (actually a dummy...I've just peeked at their actual card) and then concentrate as I duplicate their drawing and then put my duplicate drawing face down on the table. I ask them again if they would be impressed if that matched the picture they were imagining (they have already said "yes" during the gag intro.) I tell them to turn it over and as they do I put my wallet back in my pocket. I could pull their drawing out if I wanted to but why would I? They've just seen a miracle and they have a souvenir and my business card. You really can't beat it.

Finally a wallet that you can use to switch items or steal items from in a nice natural way without the wallet being under suspicion. The switch is so beautiful, easy to do, but very powerful. Fun, too! On top of all that, it is an excellent wallet itself! You can (and I do) use this as my everyday wallet. Get one - you'll love it and the many routines that come with it.
