Index Wallet

Postby Bob Farmer » December 27th, 2017, 8:40 pm

I'm looking for a wallet, a sort of card index disguised as a wallet that can hold 8 cards.

Each card should be able to be quickly accessed (like a card index, maybe the cards are each jogged slightly).

It would also be nice if after a card was removed the wallet could be shown to contain no other cards.

I'm thinking maybe a Himber wallet with a card index on one side.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

would paul wilson's predator wallet or the dominique duvivier wallet work for this? the shogun element in the former would allow the wallet to be shown empty.

Have you looked at Tony Miller's "Shiva Wallet".

I have one. It is very well made and I think it will do what you are looking for.

Yes, Tony's Shiva wallet is fantastic and it's the one I prefer. Tony also has a new wallet we've been discussing which he hasn't marketed yet, but sounds perfect also. I wanted to hear if there were any others I may have overlooked.

the stealth assassin wallets have an indexing feature but i don't recall if those are meant to hold full sizes cards or just billets.

"Thought Explosion Wallet" (Supreme Magic)

"Miracle Wallet" (Tannen: Frank Garcia)

"Any Card to Wallet" (C.W.)

"Elite Himber Bomb(shell) Wallet" (Camirand Academy)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The first three wallets have at least 2 hidden horizontal "index rows" to hold cards, unseen by the audience.

The last one has the actual "Himber" feature: It has two duplicate sets of 7 vertical index "card slots", that are seen - when opened from either side.

Marc Oberon's Bang On. You open the wallet and remove a black envelope. The wallet is seen to be empty. The envelope is opened and a single playing card falls out onto your hand.
