Himber Wallet by Magic Methods(c. 2000) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Magic Methods was founded in Ohio in 1969 by Mr. Jerry Mentzer. Jerry transferred to Greenville, SC in the early 1970’s to continue his career as a mechanical engineer with Union Carbide. The Magic Methods business was acquired by Eddy Wade in 2014 and moved from it’s Greenville, SC location to it’s current home of Belmont, NC in 2016.
Jerry Mentzer was Eddy’s friend & mentor during Eddy’s formidable years in the Art of Magic. Jerry taught Eddy many of the routines and effects he still performs today. To give Eddy a way to earn a bit of spending money, during his young years of growing up, Jerry allowed Eddy to help manufacture and package many of the effects Magic Methods sold through (in the 1970’s & ’80’s) an actual printed catalog. Each summer, Eddy attended several annual magic conventions with Jerry, helping him set-up the dealer display and demonstrating the items for sale.
Effect: The Himber Wallet is one of the magic world’s most versatile props. It can be used in a variety of magical effects from predictions, to card to wallet, to the famous “Polaroid Money” routine in which blank paper first turns to dollar bills, then to five dollar bills, then to tens, etc. The wallet is made from genuine leather, does not appear overly thick or bulky and comes with the book “21 Routines With A Himber Wallet” by Baker, describes many routines you can do with the wallet. “Polaroid Money” is just one of the routines described in the book.
We offer a choice of two different wallets. This “Standard” version is made in pebble grain leather and a bit thicker than the Deluxe version – Himber Wallet,(Found elsewhere on this site) but certainly adequate if you do not intend to use the wallet at extremely close range as in some stand-up routines.
The second is more deluxe looking, better crafted and made with a smooth leather. Thinner than the other and best for close up use.
