This is the handchopper to beat – the effect of the hand falling in is hard to improve on. The Delben Two Hole and The Karson Chopper are better but they are much more expensive. For the money this is hard to beat!
I have been using this model finger chopper for at least 20 years now, and i have only ever used the one prop. Unlike many choppers this one keeps looking good, because of its clasic, simple looks. But looks can be deceptive as you will find out!
An absolute winner, that should be much more expensive!!!!
So all of us at one time or another have either performed the Zombie floating ball effect, or dreamed of performing it. I remember even having a cheap plastic one when I was a kid. Performed well its one of the most fascinating magical effects ever devised. Its inventor, Joe Karson, is even more fascinating!
I have found reading this book very interesting; a real page turner! Joe was not a saint by any means, but he was clearly a borderline genius, a very talented inventor, and an incredible entertainer. Michael Rose has done a wonderful job of filling in all the blanks about this colorful character. A highly recommended read.
This is a very cute effect. You have a small teak case divided into two adjacent compartments. One side holds a miniature red deck of cards and the other has a blue back deck. One deck is chosen and a card selected in a fair manner. The selected card is inserted in the compartment with the opposite colored deck with the purpose of finding its match in that deck. The case is covered with a teak cover exhibiting a contrasting white/blue banding. The selected card is revealed and the magician is shocked to hear the identity of the card for it is known as the karate kard. He removes the cover and finds that the red deck has been chopped up in its compartment and only one red card remains intact next to the selected card. They match. Beautiful props and clever method, all in one very small package. This is more micro than mini magic for Alan. Love it, but you have to love everything that Alan makes.
What’s better than one Mummy…why, TWO Mummies. This new version of the classic Warner Mummy, named appropriately Mummy II, is gorgeous. Granted, no radical changes have occurred in overall design and method (but who wants to mess with a true masterpiece), there are some very nice new improvements. This is the first Mummy made by Alan using ALL teak components. The open coffin is all teak and finished in a satin varnish, thus sealing the natural oils that have a tendency to stain the mummy’s wrapping. Previous coffins used clear plastic curved ends and at one time the base was painted black. The hieroglyphics on the new rectangular wooden plague adds more to the Egyptian theme than the "shiny" golden plaque in the original. The mummy itself has a new head similar to the one used in Cairo Con. The choice of gemstone on the sarcophagus I received is very beautiful. This has always been one of Alan’s hallmark pieces and no Warner collection is complete without a Mummy. Most Highly Recommended!
This book requires no introduction nor review. Plain and simple, it’s a classic belonging in any card magic enthusiast’s library. I have mine next to Giobbi’s Card College series. Ed Marlo has contributed immensely to card magic and I am glad this series is now under one convenient hard cover book. I am particularly glad it was released as it nicely replaces the loose soft bound series I sold on ebay.
