I can never fit the required stuff in a small "hip pocket" wallet. I need a little more. Size matters. Beside I want them to be happy to see me!!

I'll road test. Should have it in a few days.

And I'm a collector. I wish I never sold any of my previous wallets. I want enough to build a cow and **** off my vegan daughter.

If you think about it, since cows eat grass and hay and are not meat eaters, leather is recycled grass, hay, and non meat products.

I actually kind of like this, and the price is fair. I am of the thought though that in a year or so, bigger wallets like this will stick out and look unusual for any man under 50. I wish it were a tad smaller. May still get it.



Jokes aside, I agree. It looks very nice and priced perfect for something like this.

Can I afford another wallet? No. Do I need another? No. Do I want it? Yes.

Can anyone confirm if a s**de is required for the card to wallet and also is there an actual compartment for bank notes?

I am still awaiting mine to arrive. Hopefully it will arrive in a couple of days.

However here is a review from another forum - https://www.themagiciansforum.com/post/s......m=500317

"Got the wallet. It’s actually amazing!!! Super happy with my purchase. It’s the same exact size as the assassin except for a little longer across. By just under a quarter inch. It’s a lot smaller than I expected it to be. I also love the little red pouch that comes with it. The quality seems great as well. I’m actually very very surprised with this wallet. Every once in a while you buy some thing and it comes out of nowhere and ends up being a home run . This is that for me right now. I also love that I can fit full-size playing cards in two different areas of the wallet.

Edit. Actually I lied. The playing cards fit in every slot of the wallet. Just checked. It’s like if the Wieser Wallet, stealth assassin, shadow wallet and the CTW by quiver had a beautiful wallet baby. I truly think that this is going to be one of those wallets where people are going to hear about it and then it’s going to be sold out. Or it’s just gonna fly under the radar. I’m just shocked that more people didn’t jump on this."


Hope the above review helps.

Funny how all the early talk was how “HUGE” this wallet is.
Not sure how people came to this conclusion.

But I have learned from countless Amazon reviews and Q & A's that people in general are horrendous at eyeballing measurements, especially online, and not much better even when using a ruler.

Sorry as I have just watched this and it looked good. Does it hold notes in a normal billfold compartment like the old days? Gaz 😊

Doesn’t look like it. Appears to be a casualty of accommodating one of the methods, possibly the SUC.
Although I did like the way the Minimalist Wallet used an SUC but allowed you to fake a bill compartment to add another layer of impossibility.

Thanks Bill and that makes sense on now re watching and I agree it appears it doesn’t hold notes but a fake which is clever in itself.
I personally don’t always like the look of the back of the wallet with a SUC feature if you want to show it all round.
I kind of prefer a shadow wallet back where you can have a business card in there for the initial show etc.
It’s a small point and that’s me being OCD I suppose but the Devils in the detail but overall this wallet does do a lot and the size and the fake note makes it look very clever I must admit. The peek looked good too and if it has a double magnetic flap that gives you the info and locks around like the weiser wallet then all the better, also great for switches

When I watched the trailer video, the wallet looked large to me. It was the first thing I noticed about it - that and it looked a lot like a Stealth Assassin. Another reviewer on another forum received one (and likewise thought from the trailer that it was large), had this to say: "Just arrived in the mail, have not watched the tutorial yet ... but this looks exactly like Stealth Assassin. Shape, size, layout ... way too similar to be a coincidence."

Haha, intruiging!

It's a great pity there's no compartment for cash as that's the actual purpose of a wallet.
I really like the wallet but for me two things are a must.
One being an actual compartment for cash rather than a money clip and two no sl**e for card to wallet.

I agree I like a wallet to hold notes that’s why I like The Hi Jaks wallet so much Gaz 😊

I love wallets myself but I still haven't found one better for me than The Infinity. Great everyday wallet, card to wallet, Peek, index at the ready with Kolossal Killer or heirloom.

BUT, this looks very nice and I'll still probably be checking this out, lol

Hi,

I was involved in this project and must say the wallet might be a bit big to few people's liking but it sure makes up for it with it's functionality. Also for a multi featured wallet at this price is a bit rare in the current market.

The video also has some really good tricks.

I hope you guys get yourself one and have a great experience with it.

I received this wallet this week, and have yet to play with it. I must say that my hunch was correct that it is larger than I have begun to like over the last few years. With that said, if the size doesn’t bother you, it appears to be a quality prop for the price. It is closer to what I hope to have one day: A SAW 3.0 (my favorite p**k wallet and the gold standard for me), but that allows for a card l**d from p**m.

I received the 'Climax Wallet' a few days ago and have played with the wallet.

There have been quite few excellent reviews on the 'Climax Wallet'. All those who are on the fence might like to go through a few of these reviews. Hopefully, the following reviews will help clear most of your doubts/concerns on the 'Climax Wallet':-

"Magic Review - Climax Wallet by Surya Kumar" Reviewed by Magic Orthodoxy - https://youtu.be/rS8Zte32a-A

"Climax Wallet" Reviewed by Craig & Ryland's Review Show #58 - https://youtu.be/syVZjfg9Ukc

Reviewed Anonymous from Dixieland - https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/15670

Since a lot of good things has already been said about the 'Climax Wallet', I will TRY & keep MY opinion short and sweet. Smile

I will now touch upon the buyer's concerns as well as the salient features of this WONDER wallet.

1. I see that the 'Climax Wallet' is being compared with the 'Stealth Assassin' Wallet. This comparison is mostly based with regards to the wallet size. I have both the wallets and I can say that both wallets are ALMOST of same size when in closed position except for the THICKNESS. The 'Stealth Assassin' is slimmer whereas the ‘Climax Wallet’ is thicker. The reason being that the 'Climax Wallet' has been stuffed with many built-in features, thus allowing the performer the versatility to perform many different effects (may I call it a 'hoard' of effects? Smile) efficiently and with ease. This is not possible with the 'Stealth Assassin' as it has very limited effects that can be performed. Those who have both the wallets will fully agree with me on this point. Please keep in mind that the method of gaining the PEEK information is totally different when compared with the 'Stealth Assassin'. IMO, the PEEK feature of the 'Climax Wallet' is very ingenious - YOU will love it. As I understand, only the SUC principle is common to both wallets.

2. The next concern has been regarding holding of currency bills/notes in the wallet. Well, the 'Climax Wallet' has no special place for holding of currency bills. However, for those who are very concerned, the creator does show a very useful and practical way of holding bills in the wallet. IMO, this need/requirement should be of less concern for the performer, but that's just ME and the way I think. Smile

3. Another query was raised regarding the need of a slide to load the wallet. Well, to LOAD most small object (particularly in the RED leather pouch) - like rings, coins, folded billet/card, key, bill etc. a slide will not be needed due to its LIP feature (a bit cryptic here). However, for loading a palmed card a slide is recommended. The slide can be placed as and when required. It could be a simple credit-card which will do the job nice and perfect.

I have tried to figure out the construction of this wonder wallet but in in vain. The wallet design is very complex and thus not as easy to stitch and put together the various pieces of the wallet. One would need an experienced tailor who understands the intricacies of sewing complex lather props for use in magic. Kudos to Surya Kumar for his brilliant thinking and for bringing to us this wonderful multi utility & multipurpose wallet. ONE WALLET DOES IT ALL. Smile

Trust me, you won't go wrong with this multi feature/utility wallet. Don’t Believe me? - Get it and see it for yourself. For $75 it’s a steal - You receive a very well made genuine leather wallet of good quality & finish. You will be very proud of your new possession - it won't go into the drawer – TRUST ME! Smile

The 'Climax Wallet' is a very useful wallet for BOTH, the professionals as well as the hobbyist alike - It's NEW, it's DIFFERENT.

The above is MY personal and honest opinion. Take it if you like or else let's move on.

Thank you! Smile

I got the climax wallet a few weeks ago and after playing with it for a while, and I must say WOW!!!! The number of effects that I can perform with just this one wallet is just incredible. I used to carry a real man's and a razor wallet, but the climax wallet solved this issue, and now I carry only the climax wallet.


Out to lunch
I love that the out to lunch is built into this. 

Peak Compartment
The peek functions brilliantly, and the best part is the ID section peek doesn't affect the main compartment since the peek compartment is separate. Love that bit of deception. 

Object to impossible location
I don't know why nobody's talking about that little red pouch. That red pouch is a replacement for an object to an envelope, and the reset is instant, and I don't need to keep buying refills. You just need the wallet and nothing extra. 

Switch compartment
I love the switch compartment and the trick that is taught on the DVD along with it. 

SUC
The SUC is a favorite of all mentalists and this is brilliantly built into the wallet. I love the fact that they got permission from Mark Strivings.

I can comfortably carry the wallet in my back pocket. 

I also love the fact that the bicycle card fits perfectly into the credit card slots. You can carry your packet tricks if needed

Card to wallet
The wallet has 3 card to wallet effects catering to beginners and advanced. 

Extra features
Another bit I added was the para pad sheet behind the id card compartment. That's another addition that can be done in this wallet. Perfect for pre show work.

All in all I love the climax wallet and I don't see myself replacing this.
