I must have tried 10 or more card to wallet effects, but this has got to rank as one of the cleanest, easiest, and most stunning of all. On top of that you can repeat it immediately to the same group – and that is where the "Wallop" really kicks in.
When you get this, and you should, don’t think like a magician, follow the routine and you will have a huge hit on your hands, that is just so much simpler than any of the other wallet effects you have tried.
Of course there are no sleights whatsoever. A very impressive piece of magic!
This is a very clean and logical red and blue card trick that has shades of that old chestnut the Brainwave Deck, but which is easier to do, cleaner, and can be repeated.
You start by shuffling the deck face down. As you shuffle you and your audience notice that one card has a blue back. You say that is the Lone Stranger card. You place the stranger card on the top of the deck and turn the deck over to ask the audience to point to any of the face-up cards. They choose any card and it is immediately shown to be matching the blue Stranger card. Without any funny moves the effect can be repeated immediately.
Very clean and simple to do, just the way we like them so you can focus on that all important presentation and routine!
Tony Corinda should have been given a special award for this book. There is nothing in the world of Magic or Mentalism that comes close to this ‘essential reference’ for completeness,organization,accuracy and all around excellence. Several books have been called "The Bible of Mentalism" but there is really only one…Corinda’s 13 Steps to Mentalism!
I keep the can inside a clear straight-sided tumbler. After some playing, I open the top, reach inside and lift out the tumbler containing the coke can. This helps secure the can and also keeps me from fumbling or searching for the tumbler when it is time to pour. Oddly enough, on three occassions, small children knew immediately what took place…… adults, Never!
I believe Dean has provided the magic community with a great stage and closeup item for what I believe to be fun routine to perform. It is basically a rope trick with 3 of Dean’s routines supplied. I am sure as time goes on that more folks will come up with ideas of their own to incorporate their use with the box. It is very well made of quality hardwood and also has a beautiful finish. It is a bit pricey for a rope trick but this one won’t sit on the shelf and collect dust like some props do. I think you will have fun with this one.
Nobody doing closeup magic shouldn’t be with out this little gem of a fooler. Best of all, it can be handled before and/or after the routine is complete. People marvel at this little prop and if you want to own a great finger chopper/penetrator, this is the way to go. This has a 5star wow factor that will put a smile on their face and yours as you deviously "put the blade on their finger". I own the Miller version and have used it for 100’s of demos and it still performs just fine. I am sure the Viking version lives up to the Viking standards and quality also. As a side note….I would really like to see a "head chopper" version of this someday. George…are you listening?
