It's a breast pocket style Himber wallet, not the type that fits in your hip pocket.Originally posted by bill7:
does it really look like a nerdy prop.
If that's nerdy, this isn't for you.
It's a wonderful piece of apparatus.
You might want to check out "Phantom of the Wallet" for a more compact wallet design similar to the Bendix. It is a "Z-Himber" style with a zipper compartment similar, but not identical to the Bendix Bombshell
Larry Becker has a very strong routine for the Bombshell in one of his literary offerings.
Larry Becker does have a very strong routine using the Roth made Bendix Bombshell. I found one at a flea market and persued the routine using this prop. While it is a quality piece of sewn leather, I have had several folks catch the fact that it is a z fold wallet due to its thickness. After recently seeing another fine leather crafter from England by the name of Jerry O'connell, I am now using his wallets which are almost undectable as a himber. They have to be seen to be appreciated. Check these out before you rush into the Bendix.
