The Blurb

Aleph Wallet is the perfect tool for the working professional magician.
Aleph Wallet is a multipurpose wallet that will allow you to perform plenty of Stage, Parlor and Close-Up audience tested miracles. You will have an arsenal just in your rear trouser pocket.

Aleph Wallet is more that a wallet:

  • Magnetic Add a Number Wallet
  • Always ready “Card in Wallet” (in spectator’s pocket).
  • Switch Wallet
  • Index Wallet for billets
  • Secret Writing Wallet
  • Peek Wallet (two peeks internal and external)
  • … and much more

Comes with a DVD (approx. 2 hours), with performances, full descriptions and more than 15 gimmicks and accessories. You’ll learn 14 professional routines and many ideas and all
the tiny details about the wallet.

Some routines explained step by step in the DVD

Money in your pocket (Marc Paul)
A great routine to perform at any venue. The magician can accurately guess, via “body language”, in which pocket has the different bills he has secretly hidden. That’s not all,
as a great punch climax you show a prediction that was all time in full view.

Smart Room Service
Ultra practical and updated version of the classic “Room Service”, useful in Close-Up, Parlor or Stage.

Psychic Birthday
You’ll get into the mind of a spectator and reveal no only the month but also the exact day and the weather of a birthday he has in mind.

“Hands Off” Dictionary Test
A true “hand off” book test. The magician never touches the regular huge dictionary; he never asks the number of the freely chosen page but he can accurately read the word the
spectator has in mind.

Sweet Ring Michel reveals for the first time this closely guarded routine from his professional repertoire. This is a devastating routine: a spectator’s finger ring magically
travels to a selected and sealed sugar bag.

My Comments

This is a wallet that has everything: a Himber wallet, the SUC design (on both sides of the wallet), an index system, card to wallet, and a magnetic add-a-number pad. It is truly a mentalist's arsenal in one little package as the blurb states. It's well made and comes as a great package, since it includes a boon writer and many accessories.

One nice feature about this is that it is customizable.  There is an index, but it's not built in. You can choose to have it in the wallet or take it out. The index can hold up to sixteen billets, but on the DVD, it's suggested that twelve is best number. Also, the slots can hold folded billets, but nothing much bigger than that.

Another feature which is customizable is the magnetic locking device. It can be a locking add-a-no pad by simply including the special magnetic inserts that are disguised as
ordinary parts of the wallet and that contain the magnetic locking gimmicks. Or you can take them out and avoid any issues you may have with carrying magnets in your pocket.

The package includes the Aleph Wallet (3" x 4.5" approx.), a plastic card case filled with an incredible amount of accessories, a boon writer, and the instructional DVD. The DVD is "dubbed" in English and contains explanations for a dozen routines. Each routine demonstrates the different functions of the wallet. All of this comes packaged in a very nice box, not unlike what you'd get if you were buying a regular wallet from an upscale department store.

The only consideration, and it's a big one, is that this wallet can not be used as a regular wallet. It's not designed to hold cash, credit cards, or IDs. Again, this is simply a consideration, not a negative criticism. To some, this is no big deal as many don't mind carrying more than one wallet. But, to others, in comparison to Peter Nardi
and Alakazam's recent wallets, which can be used as regular wallets, this may be a feature that downgrades its usefulness to the performer.

If this appeals to you, then this is highly recommended. It is pricey, but, on the other hand, you'll probably never need another wallet as this one will do most anything you'll need it to do.
