Roni Shachnaey’s Mystic Wallet reviewed by Jon Jensen
Howard Katz is a mild mannered computer guru who also happens to be
CEO and chief bottle washer at The Magic Warehouse. The other day I
visited his shop to see what was new and he completely blew me away
with his handling of a new trick.
Roni Shachnaey has produced a handy little peak wallet called Mystic
Wallet. It is a well manufactured wallet that allows you to secretly steal out
paper or billets.
Howard discovered that you can easily and secretly steal out signed
bank notes from the wallet. Borrow a dollar bill and have it signed by the
spectator. Fold the bill in eighths and openly place it into the wallet. In the
natural motion of handing the wallet to the spectator to hold onto, the bill is
stolen out. There is no fumbling or awkward moves. The spectator will be
absolutely convinced that his bill is still in the wallet.
You can now reproduce the bill in your favorite manner. For instance,
you could perform the hundred dollar bill switch where a bill changes to the
spectator’s signed bill. You could also use an effect such as David Regal’s
Clarity Box. Nick, the resident sleight of hand artist at The Magic
Warehouse, loads the bill into a second wallet. He uses the Speed Loader
Every magician Howard has shown this trick to has been fooled badly
and he quickly sold out of the wallets. A new order comes in this week, but
you don’t want to miss out.
Who knew a computer geek could be this creative.
