When it comes to luggage and accessories for the close-up magician, there's not a lot to choose from. Yet, a lot of magicians are constantly seeking that "perfect" bag, box, or briefcase that will suit their act.

Jay Sankey's new Assassin's Pouch, despite its silly name, is a serious entry into this sub-niche market. This is not a re-packaged cosmetics or PDA case, it is a Sankey design that is custom manufactured in an underground factory staffed by a team of hypnotized elves which Sankey employs because they make him feel tall.

Actually, I don't know who designed it, or where it's made. There's no country-of-origin or materials label on the pouch, which means you can't prove my theory wrong, so you may as well go with it.

Overall the Assassin's Pouch is well-made and thoughtfully designed. I wish it didn't use velcro to close the flaps on the front pockets, which I find low-class and noisy, but there's a lot to like so I'll try to work past that, which I admit might be a personal issue that requires counseling. I like that the pouch can be worn by using the sturdy belt loop or the included carabiner clip. The thumb tip and Sharpie pockets are great, and I like that the pouch can comfortably hold two decks of cards. And, although Joshua Jay's Pro Carrier Case is classier, the Assassin's Pouch is more versatile, and not a bad buy.
