The Stealth Assassin Mentalists Utility Wallet

Postby roman59 » Nov 13th, '05, 20:24



Available from www.alakazam.co.uk price £99.00

I was at Alakazam's shop this weekend & the Assassin wallets had arrived.

After bugging Peter he sold me one of the wallets without the instructional dvd's.

What can I say this item is a real workers dream come true!

3 different methods of peeking, a built in billet index, the out to lunch principle & it can even be used as a card to wallet (if you do a certain type of fold to the card).

From a workers point of view I can now discard 4 different wallets including the stockholder, and use just the one wallet!

I am now looking forward to seeing the dvd's for additional routines and handling.

This baby is going to be in my jacket pocket all the time & ready to use at a moments notice.

Thanks Peter for letting me buy one early & congratulations on a very fine workable product.

Just get those dvd's in the post to me!

Cheers

All I am waiting on now is the dvd's to get more ideas on how to use it.

Not wishing to rain on anyone's parade, but Zero, I see you are an AH and 15. Do you have a good reason to be carrying around a business card wallet?

If not, now's the time to come up with one.

I'm in my mid-30s and a 'professional' (as in my job, not a pro magician). As such, I'm the sort of person who might have a nice leather businness card and credit card holder. Even then, my Stealth Wallet occasionally comes under suspicion.

The Assassin can be used as a normal everyday wallet.

In actual fact once mine is a little bit worn in it will look & suit me even better.

Also it is not really a business card holder one big difference between Assassin & Stealth.

Not giving anything away the performer does not need to go into his wallet a second time (if you catch my drift).

Mine arrived about a week ago. I was out over the weekend before that, but I rang Alakazam to order a couple of things (CUPS) last Tuesday and Peter Nardi told me that I should have already received my Stealth Assassin. He was absolutely right; when I got in, there was a package from Alakazam.

In my opinion, this is a tiny bit too narrow to look like a wallet, but is perfectly capable of being used as one. I carry round a wallet and a credit and business card holder, so it's not an issue for me.

The DVDs are rather good and contain not just some excellent routines, but things that will set you off thinking of your own material.

The website for the Stealth Assassin seems to be down quite a bit, but is back up today.

I'd imagine you would have to wait a bit longer for yours, as your are in the USA, but I think Silkenone should give Alakazam a ring.

Having now had a chance to play with one of these I have to say I am impressed. It is the best of these types of wallets I have personally come across, with so many different uses. It is on the pricey side, but then again if your a working pro it's the kind of luxury you will be happy to pay for.

I wouldnt say its on the pricey side.

I consider it to be a serious investment & I think its says a great deal about the product when it sells out before the release date, with very little advertising.

Bet you are glad you were one of the first 100 buyers!

I guess price on something like this is somewhat subjective. Personally I think it is pricey but I can understand someone that accepts the price as reasonable because of what the wallet can do.
