Hi All.

Can anyone recommend a nice quality Himber Wallet that's just a bit bigger than a playing card? I was reading back issues of Genii and came across a version of Paul Gertner's Photocopy, which I'm interested in trying (BTW, would the size I'm looking for work for this trick?).

Also, can anyone comment on this one: http://www.hanklee.org/xcart/customer/pr......p;page=1



thanks in advance,

There are currently so many wallet on the market, it is very confusing as to which one to purchase. Years ago you only had one choice.

You can get Jerry O'Connell Wallets at http://wizardcraft.com/default.htm

If you simply need a wallet a bit bigger than a poker-sized playing card, the one you are looking for is the mini-Himber. (I don't know if it is appropriate for Pault Gertner's effect.) This is a true Himber-style wallet, not a Z-fold style wallet. I have done business with WizardCraft and have always been very happy with the service.

The workmanship is superb. Some cheaper Himber wallets don't hold up well, are thicker than they need to be, and have "rough" working during the switch. None of these problems exist with the O'Connell wallets.

A word of caution: All the mini Himbers I have tried, including various Z-fold wallets, are just a tad too small to be used with a coin envelope that is big enough to accommodate a poker-sized card (unless I modify the envelope).

Craig Dickson at Wizard Craft is a true gentleman...check his website or give him a call. He will give you the best information available on Himber wallets, especially the O'Connell himbers.
