Topic: "JOL"Jaks Wallet from E. Raymond Carlyle
Message: Posted by: mastermindreader (Feb 11, 2013 02:41AM)
Just received the "JOL Wallet" from my good friend and master mentalist, Ed Carlyle.

This is a tri-fold Jaks style business card case that's been finely crafted in leather by Jerry O'Connell. The wallet is beautiful and completely innocent in appearance. It comes with excellent handling instructions by Carlyle.

I like this a lot and, as it is the best made Jaks wallet I've ever seen, I give it my highest recommendation.

Details at: http://www.carlyletouch.com/Jaks_Wallet.html

Good thoughts,

Bob

I made a mini review of it 'downstairs' last year, but just to add - yes, this is a beautiful little card-case/wallet... the photo makes it look like the leather is kinda grainy, but mine is smooth and sleek...

I don't go in for 'magician foolers', but I was out chatting with a few last year, and they wanted to see something, so I revealed a recent memory of one of the guy's there, using this wallet... what made it fun was, I knew he and his friends were burning me, and they were all pontificating as to 'how', leaving me giggling, sipping my pint...

anyway - its a classy looking case/wallet - and is the only one I use these days (after being a wallet addict for many years)... looks great, works fantastically, very easy to use...what more could you ask for?
Message: Posted by: IAIN (Feb 11, 2013 06:53AM)
I should also add, for those that use envelopes, this case holds a kollosal killer sized envelope perfectly...
Message: Posted by: Bill Cushman (Feb 11, 2013 09:00PM)
Ed showed it to me via Skype and it looks great (he has a top noctch camera). The prototype has the grainier leather I associate with my JOC Himbers but the ones for sale are a very nice smooth leather. And of course Ed's handling is smooth too!

In one of my earlier books I described my routine with the Jaks Wallet that uses the cards from the game of Clue (or Cluedo to our English brethren). If three cards are selected and inserted sequentially, you can identify all of them.

Good thoughts,

Bob

I have a SUC and SAW. Would this Jaks provide a better or more practical p..k than the other mentioend wallets? Would the Jaks be more suited for certain effects or routines than the other wallets?

Thank you.
Michael
Message: Posted by: mastermindreader (Feb 12, 2013 06:58PM)
I use the Jaks wallet for p**ks and the SUC for stealing, switching, loading. They both can be used for PW, but the Jaks offers a larger writing space and a slightly more solid base.

Thank you very much for your comments. They were very helpful. I will be ordering the Jaks wallet.

Note that if you want to use the Jaks for PW, you'll have to cut out the clear plastic that covers the window.

It's more like a tri-fold leather credit/business card case than a wallet. In a pinch you could use it to hold some cash and ID, but I personally wouldn't. I use mine just to carry billets and business cards.

It's slightly larger than the average business card case, but significantly smaller than a regular wallet.
Message: Posted by: pabloinus (Mar 23, 2014 08:00PM)
It is totally different that miller's wallet. Tony's is a wallet bi fold and this one is a very slim trifold business card holder. They also operate differently

I emailed Jerry using the email address on his website indicating I would like to buy one of his wallets. No response. I think he must only want to sell to customers in the UK or France, although there's no mention of this on his website.

Not to respond to a customer's inquiry about a purchase is a very poor business practice.

Message: Posted by: mastermindreader (Jun 21, 2014 10:48AM)
It's exactly the same in construction as the Jaks Wallet marketed by Tannens back in the 1970's. (The JOL, though, is of far better quality.)

The original Jaks Wallet, as described by Stanley Jaks, was a bifold, not a trifold. But, as I said, the trifold version came out shortly thereafter and the device was still called a "Jaks Wallet."

Mastermindreader, do you know a source that sells a "Jaks Wallet" currently? Recently purchased your Billet Killers video from Penguin, which was wonderful. Your discussion about and demonstration of the Jaks Wallet was excellent, and I would like to get one, if possible. Tried contacting Jerry O'Connell of JOL in England, but like others have written, no response at all.

Yeah, with Bob saying the original Jaks was bifold I assumed it would be similar! That's assuming you meant bifold, my zapps aren't billfold! All this this wallet terminology hey :-) I like the simplicity of the zapp, never felt the need to do any of the paddle move convincers though, I just get on with it! I mainly use the zapp for PW now after taking a knife to it!

They come in brown too :-)

Yeah I can see how that would work! Horses for courses I suppose. To my mind if everything was as it should be ;-) it would be safe anyway. Adding the band could suggest this isn't really the case. Where does it become too much? put it in a locked box after the band? I do like the idea though, I may have a play with it as a way to get the peek.
Message: Posted by: jerdunn (Jul 5, 2014 12:36PM)
For Bob C:

I really like your peek with the rubber band. But I've also asked myself whether this approach makes the wallet too prominent in the spectators' minds.

The standard peek philosophy is to make the spectators forget there ever was a wallet or writing on a card. Thus the ploys of getting the peek as you casually put the wallet away in your shirt pocket, or getting the peek with Carlyle's "do you mind if I keep this?"ploy.

I like your rubber band idea because it makes the wallet appear peek-proof to skeptical types (and it's just fun to pull off!). But what about the issue of giving the wallet a prominence that may not be desirable?

If you feel like addressing this point, great -- and thanks!

Cheers,
Jerry
Message: Posted by: mastermindreader (Jul 7, 2014 03:00PM)
Hi Jerry-

You're right. I devised the peek with the rubber band for a very specific routine involving Clue cards. In that context it worked fine.

Note that you have to have a rubber band wrapped around the case when you first take it out. Thus it is a bit less obtrusive than if you later just added the rubber band after the card was inserted.

Also note that when I use the rubber band I hand the case to the participant to put into his own pocket.
Message: Posted by: JanForster (Jul 7, 2014 04:44PM)
Thanks, Bob, for the clarification, I feel better now... :) Jan
Message: Posted by: jerdunn (Jul 7, 2014 10:41PM)
Hey Bob,

Thanks so much for elucidating the question.

Having the rubber band in place from the outset no doubt helps it register as just part of the package, and giving the wallet to the spectator justifies the extra "security" measure.

I too now feel calmer . . . :)

Cheers,
Jerry

I also would just like to say that Ed Carlyle is such a standup guy. I remember when I was looking for an aged haunted key years ago. I stumbled across his website and discovered that he aged them and sold them. To my dismay, he was completely sold out. I asked him when he expected to have them back in stock. He said it would be quite a while, but I need not worry, as he was sending me his personal key.

His haunted key is by far the best I've ever found. I've used about 7 different ones.

Message: Posted by: mastermindreader (Oct 6, 2014 07:24PM)
I'm sure you'll find it very useful. As I have pointed out many times before, it is really more of a business card case than a wallet. Also, the Jaks Wallet has been around for over half a century and is a standard utility item. The JOL model is beautifully made but, in operation, size, etc. it is the same as earlier models, so I'm not sure what the value of a review would be. Unless, of course, you're referring to Ed's excellent instructions and handling.
Message: Posted by: MatthewSims (Oct 7, 2014 10:22AM)
Bob,

I was mainly referring to the quality of Ed's leather and how well it will hold up. That has been my main concern with all of my past wallets. The leather has been cheap and always breaks down. Ed's wallet seems to be the best leather I've ever come across.

One thing I don't understand about the wallet however is the middle section. It is open on both sides, so it kinda prevents you from safely holding any cards in that slot, since they can fall out from the other side.

Was this intended for something specific?
Message: Posted by: jerdunn (Oct 7, 2014 10:59AM)
I have business cards in that center section and they don't fall out. Try adding a few more, so the bulk holds them in?

I'm pleasantly surprised.
I like this better than my Pantera V.2

Like many others, Bob pushed me to it.

Maybe one day,
I can combine all these wallets,
into one giant p**k atache case....hmmm.

I can see the add copy now;

"FULL p**k area! You will NOT miss this one! "

Much to my dismay, I now own more peek wallets than I care too. The Mystic is very well made, and I like it a lot. But the JOL Jaks Wallet is currently my favorite. Simple, elegant, deceptive, especially with Bob Cassidy's handing taught on Billet Killers.

It's been more than a year ago since I bought this, and I still love it! I use it a lot in casual settings (not for stage) and it's still in very good conditions. The quality of this product is excellent.

Since it's a business card case (not a wallet) I use it to carry around my business cards when I go out, so when I use it no one thinks twice about it.
Highly recommended.

I agree, it is excellent, I use it all the time and keep most of the time my business cards in it. So people are used to it. Jan

I didn't like it at the start, but now I use it mostly for 'magic square' routine, and I like my sneaky idea of impudently holding it in my right hand, and pointing at the pen the spectator is holding (saying: 'I will also need that').
It's great now, simple, elegant, sneaky, the wallet is also perfect for holding a few business cards for other routines, convenient to carry around. It is also possible to make slots by cutting the leather, then it looks more like a casual wallet, not business card case (not my idea).
