This is one of my favorite pieces from Rip Vanwinkle. As a Tenyo collector I always loved the Crystal Clever, but wished the quality was not of the typical plastic they use. Well Mr. Vanwinkle has made a beautiful version of Collector quality to truly adorn. The version I own has a classic look that he made only three of a few years back. Recently he made two of the Exotic version like the one on this site for a total of five. They work on the same principle as the Tenyo Crystal Clever does so there is no funny move to release the gimmick. The inner workings are is clever as the outside is beautiful with full attention to detail. As with all Rip Vanwinkle magic he only makes a couple and I am very fortunate to own this piece. If you ever get a chance to own a piece of his magic please do so as the quality is right there with the best.
The Necklace is crafted beautifully. You won’t believe your eyes.
Add to that the magic/surprise effect, and you’ve got a winner! The handling is easy for magicians and non-magicians alike. The patter flows. This is an incredible effect. You will not be disappointed with it.
Poker Story is a beautiful performance piece. The patter is well thought out and flows nicely. The props are well-constructed and easy to use. The handling is a piece of cake. And it has a nice kicker at the end. You’ll love doing this trick.
I just received this gem from France’s master magic craftsman. Francois has a essentially trimmed down the classic wandering mummy to a fantastic close up piece. You tell a whimsical story about a tomb where a team of archeologists find a mummified cat that has a rare gem inside of it and the cat can levitate ( really!) and when put in a sarcophagus for safe keeping vanishes in one moment only to reappear in the next. What Fun this is. And of course this deluxe illusion is made out of the finest materials i.e. maple, ebony etc. No sleight of hand needed just a good presentation and you have a great micro magic illusion!
How many times have you been asked "Can you make my wife dissapear?" Well with this little gem from Howard Schwarzman, you can show a prototype of just that with this micro illusion. I’ve had more fun with this over the years and the best thing about it, it will fool everyone including magicians.
Larry Becker is one of the true gentlemen of magic and mentalism and has some of the $link(nd=becker,most amazing ideas). I always liked the first Chameleon Chest put out by Larry and Viking. However, this new one that Larry has created with the help of Tony Curtis is breathtaking!
The box is small, silent, very solid and beautiful to behold. The original one is still fine, but in comparison it hard to imagine why you would ever choose it compared to this beauty. Due to it’s size I feel this is even more versatile than the original.
These are in very short supply so my advice to you is stampede over to Larry’s site and grab one now before they are all gone!
I can’t understand why this effect has been around so long and hasn’t received more attention. Maybe that’s good for people like me, who love using this innocent, but devious contraption.
Imagine a box with valuables inside and keys freely… honestly freely… chosen and even traded amongst the audience members. You can be given a key that they select. They can even change their minds mid-way through the performance, and trade their keys, or your key. It doesn’t matter. What does matter… and this is the key difference… is that your key always works. But, you never need to touch the box. Yep. That’s right. Unlike other tricky lock effects where the magician takes the last key and is able to open the lock, this effect is entirely self-working. You always get everything in the box, and you do absolutely nothing.
