TT and 6 inch silk, Coin Unique, coins for Peter Marucci's ungimmicked Scotch and Soda, 1 & 5 Bill Transpo, and an e******* s**** quarter. I guess that's all.

As you can probably tell from my list, my pockets are usually pretty full.
  • TT and Eclipse TT
  • 3 diamond cut silks
  • card to wallet, wallet
  • 2 decks of cards (1 stacked, 1 not)
  • sometimes sponge balls
  • Sharpie but that stays stuck in the wallet until I use it
  • dental floss (in case I have a dental emergency or for gypsie thread)
  • 5 half dollars and s****

and that's about it,

I have KK in my wallet, and a deck of cards with a few dupes and a few Card Warp preps in a VOX BOX case. I will usually carry 3 half dollars (ungimmicked) for coins across, and a dovepan in my left breast pocket (that was a joke).

And a Sharpie.

That's it.

Me, I seem to *always* have a Hot Rod, Twisted Sisters, and a copper/silver set. Personally, I find that those pack light and give quite a lot of punch at a moment's notice.

Man I am really going to sound like a novice...

I only have me, and lately a Fortune Telling Fish and Two-Card Monte (not Blaines).

I always carry Dice for DR Sach's dice routine and three cards in a small wallet to do my ambitious monte routine.
Come check out my magic.

Here's my list:
  • A deck of cards with two doubles, one signed (for my own signed two card flight) and one unsigned.
  • Colour Monte
  • Coin Bite, Ten pence (same as coin bite), and a bent ten pence. These three coins make my own killer ten pence routine.
  • I also carry a pre-paperclipped card (for paperclipped).
  • Hollow (it kills)
  • A small amount of alcohol, but generally there's somewhere I go (set fingers on fire).
  • A TT on me at all times, when I'm NOT doing sleight tricks.
  • Universal Raven up my sleeve for vanishes
  • Normal Raven up the other
  • And some balloons for Airtight

My brain and ears. These help me use whatever is in the location and in my pockets.

Lately I have been carrying a small rubber ear or other strange small object and some coins. At the end of a coin routine I change the last coin into the ear or other object.

A lot of people have suggested a TT and I agree that it is a good prop to keep with you, just be careful that it doesn't get accidentally found. It isn't something that is easy to pass off as an everyday object. Smile

My version of KK in a business card case, a loop around my wrist, and business cards in my pocket for a quick magic square or numerology reading.

On Dec. 9th Magix said, "Peter Marucci's ungimmicked Scotch and Soda" .

I think every magician should learn this!

I second that notion!

I don't have much magic stuff. I just carry a rubberband for Houdini's Jumping Rubberband, Floating Match, and a few coins.

Right now I am carrying the "Phil" card trick for practice and I always have a Hot Rod and a silver half in my left pocket. I've gotten so used to palming the half, that it feels natural to just have it in my hand ready to go.

Sometimes magicians confuse impromptu with "no tricks", not so. If you're a smart magician, you'll carry items that look ordinary, i.e. Watch and Wear on your wrist, Mullica wallet (or your favorite) in your pocket loaded with a magic ard and gimmicked bills, Perfect Pen and/or Bill in Pen, etc. The idea is to look like you're doing magic with ordinary items. Stuff found in the area should be a warm up. Smile

Scott Ocheltree, nice site...

I carry around with me Coin Unique, and soon bitten 10p, some ordinary coins, some times my Raven (if I have time to set it up) and me. If available I do tricks with a borrowed deck, or mentalism, or other borrowed items where something I learned in the past springs to mind. I like doing Melted at restaurants. Smile

I usually carry a penny and a couple of dimes for a basic copper & silver. I also carry a SUC II. These and also a silver dollar are my basic tools. If I'm carrying a bag I might have one or two decks of cards also.
