I agree Scam school was fine when it used to be a bunch of fun bar bets and puzzles it's a shame they're doing this.

These release is a very bad news. I thought Nardi had more ethics. I loved these products and his style. Money, money, money, as usual.

Who would buy this, considering that it's exposed right in the youtube video? Plus, anything with Brian Brushwoods name on it should be avoided.

It is ridiculos to show the workings of the magic wallet on a youtube video like this. it is some of the worse exposure I have seen of this manner of prop. can we ask for it to be taken away please.

Have to agree ,

No word from
Peter why he would want to team up with brushwood ?

After all , if he's teamed up with this , who knows what's the next item from
The Alakazam will be exposed by brushwood

After all the support we have given to Alakazam this is a kick in the teeth to magicians and mentalist everywhere !

It's kind of scary to see where magic is headed.

Card to wallet is so much stronger when the spectators signed card comes out of a zippered compartment and made even stronger when the wallet has a clasp on it but this has neither, however I've no doubt it is a great wallet with lots to offer.

The exposure is utterly disgusting. For someone who prides himself so much on customer service and satisfaction; Peter Nardi has just given a massive kick in the teeth to anyone who has bought any one of his wallets. Not good.

I don't think there's there's anything wrong with Peter selling the rights per se. That's completely his decision.

I think the issue is with Brian Brushyourwood then exposing other peoples work, e.g. Elbert L Gardner's ShoGun principle, Steve Draun's RMW approach and Miller's Hollywood or Bust (using Nardi's stealth peek) to name but three. I don't think Peter has any control over this once the rights are sold however I can't imagine the creators are very happy.

The thing that worries me most is that professional tools are being exposed to so many people. If just one performance is ruined by someone saying "You're using one of those magic wallets", as a result of seeing or hearing about the exposure vids then that's one performance too many.

As Everyone Knows Brushwood and his track record for Exposure this is a Disgrace, to sell out to him knowing his track record , this is a kick in the teeth to Magicians and mentalist worldwide

Not just for this wallet but all wallets and anyone that has now seen this is going to question " Have you got a magic wallet"

It all depends on how important you consider our Art,

Put it this way do you think Richard Osterland would sell to Brushwood his Bank Night Routine or his C***re T** ?

I don't think so

While I don't endorse exposure, I have yet to come across ANY spectator that knew of Brian Brushwood, Scam School, or "trick" wallets. Magicians know of all this because we seek this stuff out. John Q. Spectator could care less. Magic performed well can still be wildly entertaining regardless of any spectator knowledge of the subterfuge involved. If all you have in your act is the subterfuge, you're simply someone doing tricks, not a magician.

Utterly irrelevant. Either you respect magic's code of ethics or you don't.

Mhotovy is a one post wonder. I wouldn't be surprised if he's associated with the party in question.

You obviously don't perform regularly at paying gigs.
If you can't help worrying, remember worrying can't help you!

If the secret is what you pay for and the secret has been giving away then maybe all buyers of wallets with these secrets in the past can getting refunds? Maybe a question for conversation around.
