Review

Well as some of you will know I have been wanting to perform a KK type effect for ages and spent some time looking for the perfect wallet. I have owned at various points the KK/Heirloom Wallet and the Outlaw Hideout, and had actually given up on gaffed wallets and was intending to stick to a straight one when I met this fella.

Big warning here - everyone wants something different in a wallet - this one suits me!

Firstly, it is beautifully made and is the nicest leather I have seen in a 'magic' wallet. Really soft. In fact, my wife is getting a little worried because I keep sniffing it every time I put something in or take something out of it :-)

Secondly, it is small. This is important to me but maybe not to everyone. It is actually even smaller than my regular wallet (which this has now become!). It is like a credit card holder (3 slots on each side) with a money pocket.

It is gaffed as you would expect a 'shogun' or predator wallet to be. Can't say too much more without exposing. Unlike the KK/Heirloom wallet there are no 'pockets within the pocket' if you get my drift. This is not a problem for how I intend to use it.

I watched a dem of both a 'half' KK (which is what I will use it for) and for a version of 'Predator' - so its good for both. I may also use it for a version of the old Koran 5 Star Prediction.

Overall

I love it. I was really debating about whether to buy it or not (a magnificent attempt to hold off CUPS) and conceded because the price was good, and I thought I could always sell it on if it didn't suit. Suffice to say, I won't be selling it on.

You can also, for those so inclined, get a little gadget to give this some kind of peek function. I have not tried this and do not need the facility but may be of interest to those who do...
