What is a peek wallet? Or for that matter what is "a peek?"

Well, let's run through a scenario ... let's say you have a spectator write down their favorite color on a business card and then YOU place their color between some credit cards and other business cards in your wallet - writing side down.

But as you close the wallet, or hold the wallet - you "secretly" get the peek as to what they wrote.

In short: You put their card into a sleeve or sealed compartment, and as you close the wallet or put it down on the table - You get the peek due to the way the wallet is secretly built.

I've owned a handful very good peek wallets, but which one is the best? Well, obviously "best" is a subjective word - and we each have our favorites. Let's just say what works for me and how I perform - may not be what works best for you. My job isn't to tell you WHAT to buy or not buy - my job is to be objective and to give you the facts so that you can make up your own mind.

First - here is a video where I give you the quick run down of a few wallets listing the pros and cons of each one:

...................

Now that you've seen my TOP 4 - here is a closer look at each one of those wallets. Below are full fleshed out reviews of each wallet - giving you close ups, pricing and all of the detailed answers to your questions.

Viper Wallet by Sylvain Vip & Maxime Schucht

RUNNER UP

After I made my top 4 list, I was introduced to another peek wallet and ended up falling in love with it immediately. It hasn't replaced my number one, but if I had to have a super close "affordable" runner up - this would be it.

Razor Wallet by Dee Christopher and Penguin Magic

Lastly, here are some wallets that didn't quite make the cut. I've had and used these wallets over the years, but the ones below either never made it into my long standing working routines or I have ended up selling or giving away

I use The Peek Note Wallet by Secret Tannery. Easy peek and looks and feels like a quality modern leather wallet.

Just my personal preference

Cheers

Depends on what kind of peek you are doing honestly. I love the viper wallet. My saw though is my everyday wallet. Love that peek ha.

Ok, but if you could only own the Viper or the Infinity, which would you buy?

Viper is ONLY a peek wallet ... infinity has a peek and so much more.

Viper is small and easy to carry

Infinity is a big bulky wallet you'll use as your every day wallet

Pick the one that works for YOU and YOUR budget

Thanks for the reply and for posting the review videos in the first place. I get the impression that you’d personally rather have both. The Viper seems a bit pricey for "only a peek wallet" so I just purchased The Ultimate Networking Tool from Penguin, as I had some other things I was purchasing and how bad could it be for ten bucks? Hopefully I’ll be playing with that next week and if all goes well with that, I’m probably going to pick up the Infinity in the next couple weeks.

Check out the new REGAL COP WALLET before you purchase, even thought it's sold as a card to wallet - you can do a super easy peek with it as well

Do you feel there's an advantage of the Regal wallet over the Razor?

Gotta love the price on this one. So if I'm seeing this right, this does a Card to Wallet and also has a solid peek feature. How obvious is the peek?

I just got The Ultimate Networking Tool and I think it's a pretty clever idea even though the peek feature is rather large and fairly visible, but seeing as the person you're performing for probably has no idea what a peek wallet is, I suspect it's actually no more visible than a TT. Time will tell.

Peek is the same on REGAL COP WALLET - it's just a real man's wallet instead of a business card wallet

Ah, that's truly useful information, thank you for that. I really do like the ideas behind the Ultimate Networking Tool, so I think I'll give myself some time to play with it before I start looking at additional concepts. Learn one trick at a time, learn it well...and then move on. Better to know 5 tricks really well, than 100 that you fumble through.

A question for people who have experience with peek wallets in general. When working with a wallet that has a rather large & potentially obvious w*ndow, such as The Ultimate Networking tool, how worrisome is the chance of flashing said w*ndow during performance?

The more I look at that cool little card wallet the more worrisome it becomes. I’m assuming it’s a similar concept to getting used to a TT. The first time I saw a TT, I dismissed it as one of the silliest things I’d ever seen because how could people possibly NOT see it? Now it’s one of my absolute favorite tools and I've never been caught out with it, even when people think they know what they’re looking for.

You can do a paddle move - similar to showing both sides of a card, only doing it with the wallet instead. It gives the illusion that both sides are shown.

The better thing is to put it into your top jacket or shirt pocket - catch your peek as it goes by and it goes into the pocket.

You reveal

And go on to your next trick.

It never needs to come back out to be examined.
