Ordered this a few weeks ago after checking out one that my friend had purchased. Sadly there was a mix up with the postal system and mine was returned to Docc through no fault of his own.

Docc gratiously sent me an email to inform me of this apologising for the inconvienience. He has gone further to include an extra gift for me which is above the call of duty.

Although I've yet to recieved this, praise where praise is due! Were often to quick to criticize and so I wanted to publicly thank Docc in advance!

After working hard this month and scoring some overtime pay, I've just treated myself to a Serpent Wallet. The deal is too good to miss.

Your hard work is going to be well-rewarded with some great play when you get this baby! Money well earned, in this case, is money well-spent. Now come on Docc and unload the rest of these so no one else can get them and those of us who jumped on the offer can just smile and say "Told You So!"

I do the switch on the table. I simply put one corner of the bill inside the chasm, saying that "I put the bill under my wallet, so that nobody can touch it or do something strange" (I do not say "switch", but I would...). In that moment I do the secret move under the pretense of showing the bill on the table. That's how it goes: I lift the Serpent (secret move), show the bill, and then I put the wallet on the bill, covering it completely. The "dirty" work is done, and you can go on with your presentation. At the end, the spectator can take the bill under the Serpent, and verify how "psychic" you are. I know it seems a bit convoluted, but it's my favorite handling, and I like it. In my hands, it's a natural.
Hope my description is clear... feel free to ask.

Best,

Very nicely done Santini, I like your thinking here.

I cannot add much to the comments already posted about the wallet. A truly beautiful wallet. A fantastic switch that absolutely flies by undetected.
I opted for "The Dance of Shiva" as my book. Not something I think I would use personally, but a great little method for secret billet reading.

Hats off to Docc on an excellent product and excellent service.
I look forward to picking up The Vault in the near future.

How long have people in the UK been waiting for their Serpent to arrive? It's been a couple of weeks for me, should I start worrying yet?

Ah, it turned up today! No need to get worried after all.

Now I'll admit, when I read the instructions (they're sent vie e-mail when the wallet gets mailed, so you can get ahead before it arrives) I was a bit dubious as to how well it would work.

But after a couple of hours messing around, I can say it works very well! Without any hardcore practice, I can already pull off a pretty clean sw**ch. It is a little bit 'knacky', but once you have the knack it's as smooth as silk, and with more practice, I imagine it'll become flawless.

Add in the bonus book from Docc, and this is a deal not to be missed.

I have to admit that I took a scalpel to the wallet and now something placed into the bottom pocket on the right of the wallet stares me in the face when I close it - a great peek. I can also retrieve billets and folded cards placed into the ID window.

And because the wallet is tri-fold, my adjustments still mean that money fits inside normally.

I look forward to trying this out.

I have to say Mark Powell is top notch! He has come up with a great modification to the serpent wallet that adds a great peek! He has it not only thoroughly written out, but also has provided 8 step by step pictures from beginning to finish! Great job Mark, for having no stake in this wallet, you are second to none!! thanks again, I really do appreciate it!!

I got my Serpent wallet over the weekend. Beautiful looking wallet and it is now my everyday wallet. I was really pleased with how the s****h works. I can see how it will work great with bills. I also wanted to use it for seeing what's written on billets or business cards. I have a couple questions:

1) There were some earlier posts about the ID windows being stained. Yes, mine is pretty bad. So much so that the spots and smudges on the ID windows can make it confusing to see what is drawn on a card. Anyone figure out how to clean this? I tried alcohol and turpentine substitute. The smudges don't even fade using those chemicals. I even tried scraping a little with a knife. It's as if its embedded into the plastic.
2) I saw (in this thread or another) that eventually there would be a video demonstrating it's use. I like demonstrations by experienced users so I can see how smooth a move can become. Helps to guide my to practice and get things down smooth. Was that video released? I did a search on Docc's site but couldn't find anything.
