Kinetic Key – A Classic Effect

I recently picked this up after watching a video clip and have absolutely adored it ever since. They are made incredibly well and some versions even include soldering or welding around the teeth which immediately distracts from any built in locking gimmicks. Kinetic Key, Jr. does not have the welding and appears to be more of a spectator challenge to me but is still gorgeous nevertheless. There is one simple sleight but it is performed so slow and casual that it appears as if nothing has happened. Needless to say, I perform it very often. In fact, every opportunity that I get. I loved it so much that I have been trying to collect all available versions on the market. A beautiful classic and a real pleasure to own.

Wow! This is where the true miracles begin!

Larry Becker is an incredible Mentalist. But once you read this book you’ll realize he is a lot more than that! One of his biggest hits, Russian Roulette, is explained in detail in this book, and frankly even when you know how this is done you will realise how absolutely brilliant Larry Becker is. I have long been an admirer of $link(//www.martinsmagic.com/?html=gallery&keywords=becker,his magic), and this book prooves why.

Talk about incredible value. There is so much in here, and you can buy it directly from Larry for an incredible price at his new $link(http://www.stunnersplus.com,StunnersPlus.com) website.

This is such a thick tomb, it will keep you going and going and going. Thank-you Larry for re-releasing this incredible volume, and adding more to boot. If you buy no other book this year, buy this one!

Underground Genius

Anything from Bauer is worth the price: I’m priveleged to be a member of this underground genius’s weekly roundtable in the far-north suburbs of Detroit (at which the folks frequently take notes while the master speaks); a former protege of Don Alan — his best friend, actually — Ron’s Private Studies take the given effect and explore it in-depth, playing mostly with the reasoning behind each move (the lesser man would call this “magic theory,” a concept which Bauer disdains — “it’s just a trick, for God’s sake!”) and essentially getting to the heart of it all — the audience’s reaction. This cat is the best-kept secret in magic today. Highly recommend Dowdy’s new site on Ron: $link(http://thinklikeaconjuror.com,http://thinklikeaconjuror.com)

I love it when I buy the same effect again!

When you sell too many items you run the risk of selling some of your pet effects. This was one of those.

I have always liked this effect and think that it is incredibly great value too. One thing that I was very pleased to see is that this newly produced version by George Robinson is even better than my original Collector’s Workshop version. In fact, so far what I have seen George produce has always been as good and in most cases better than the original CW versions. Keep it up George!

This particuar effect is not only very cool to look at it is a truly wonderful effect. Another one on my highly recommended list, which is why I bought it twice!

Fascinating piece of magic

I have owned this CW piece for years, having bought it when it was first released. I have always thought of Creation as one of CW’s more dramatic piece to perform. The accompanying storyline is great. The use of flash paper for that magic moment and the beautifully designed prop makes this a real winner. The prop is well made and accomplishes the magic with ease. Very entertaining and most highly recommended.

Nicely made and many uses!

This is a great little prop for the mentalist and magician. You can cause little notes, cards, coins, etc to appear in the box even though it is on the table in front of their very eyes all the time.

Very well made and solid – another winner from Collector’s Workshop!

To see is to believe!

Well I waited over 8 months for this, but the wait was well worth it. This is one of the final pieces in the Alan Warner teak collection, at least for now. To see and touch Alan’s magic is really the only way to appreciate the time and effort he spends in every intricate detail of design and construction.

This is certainly one of his finer pieces of craftmanship and the effect is also very clean and surprising. It blends in very nicely with his other Egyptian effects.

I will miss receiving my monthly packages from you Alan, so please start thinking up some more of your wonderful magic!

Yes this is remarkable!

As someone who has spent a fortune on magic it is quite easy to be dissappointed by most of the magic I buy. However this piece from Collector’s Workshop was a very pleasant surprise. George Robinson had told me how much he likes it but I was always a bit dubious.

Well I decided to get it the other day and I must say how truly beautiful it is. I don’t think you can fully appreciate it until you see this.

If you are looking for something that is beautifully made, very cool mechanism, easy to do, and packs a wallop with the audience this one is for you! Highly recommended!
