I’m a big fan of Joe Mogar’s knives, but it’s hard not to fall in love with these beauties from Scotty York and Bill Wells.
These wonderful knives also come with a 34 page booklet detailing: The Scotty York’s Original Handling and Presentation of the Color Changing Pocket Knives including a special new handling utilizing the double edge knife case (case not included). And Fred Kaps’ Final Color Changing Knife Routine, a never before published routine from Scotty York’s private notebooks.
This parlor and stage effect was invented by British magician James Orrin c. 1932.
This version was created by the reformed Petrie-Lewis c. 1985 when they were in Florida c. 1983-1990 (the original Petrie-Lewis were in business from 1917-1968 when they were sold to Abbott’s) and was heavily influenced by the Owen Magic Supreme version of this effect right down to the color scheme and layout of the Spider Web. This comes with original instructions, hallmarked with the famous P&L logo and only a few of these were made. The spider is slightly larger and looks better than the Owen’s version. This unit works perfectly and the effect looks amazing!
This used to be my favorite paddle trick and close-up effect in my teenage years and early twenties. It is a great routine, with good magic and lots of fun moments in the routine. One of the things I particularly like about the routine is the spectator gets to hold the paddle a lot and which along with the routine takes heat off of the paddle and it seems even more magical.
I have both thicknesses of this card box. In my case they are made of German silver (nickel silver) which is made up of copper, nickel and zinc. It looks very much like silver but actually doesn’t have any silver in it.
They are the nicest card boxes I’ve ever used, silver or not. I hope this helps.
Easily the best Milk Jug I have owned. Very solid and looks amazing and beautiful.
Effect: From a large 2 quart pitcher a quantity of liquid is poured into a simple paper cone or other apparatus and immedi- ately vanished. The Owen pitcher is of heavy gauge lucite throughout and is crystal clear. Appears as a perfectly plain high class crystal pitcher.
Even Fabrice Delaure’s sophisticated Ten Little Giants, which also features the stone statues from the Easter Islands, leaves something to be desired when you see how cleanly and easily Kent achieves this beautiful piece of mentalism. Remember Set in Stone doesn’t just get one prediction correct, but all four in the cleanest of possible ways.
It is great to see that high Quality Magic is alive and well in 2019 at 3D Magic Works.
I’ve owned a lot of Die Boxes over the years but few get close to the quality and refinement of Ben Stone’s solid and beautiful Jumbo Die Box. This is built to be used by professionals for a life time of laughter and amazement.
Beautiful highly lacquered Walnut Box is 10.5″ x 5.5″ x 5.5″
Solid white die is almost 4″ square (3.75″).
Unique Double Door Feature on one side – this method was invented by Ben Stone – and it allows you at any time to show the die in the box or not. This is very different from the method used by Mel Babcock and others and it is the first time I have seen it used. It is very effective, all you have to do is press the button on the front of the door to make it appear.
one of the best and most solid shells in the business (also made from Walnut) and unlike most shells it has the same wood on the inside so you don’t need to have the black interior that most die boxes require.
Very solid and audible thunk as the die moves from side to side.
Whether you are a collector or a performer you have to see this beauty – they really don’t make Die Boxes like this anymore!
_EF The basic effect is solid wooden die is shown along with this beautiful box having two compartments and four doors, The die is placed in one side ond sucker effect begins with magician showing one Side empty and then the other. Finally all doors are open and die is discovered in previously shown empty hat, bag, etc.
The original version of this effect known as Bending Glass (or Flexible Glass) was invented by British Magician Oswald Rae c. 1945, and was released by Max Andrews. A later improvement replaced the glass with a mirror which is what Wellington Enterprises are showing here. But they did not stop there.
This improved version of the Flexible Glass effect was initially designed for Doug Henning who made it a feature in his fifth TV Special in 1979. Doug came up with the idea of replacing the usual paper with a knitted bag to cover the frame. Wellington also improved the design of the mirror by employing a deceptive design for the frame. Though several have copied this idea, many have not fully understood the logic behind Wellington’s design.
Also the bag covering the frame is not larger than the frame and the unique frame method allows it to appear that the frame is being folded nearly in half. The bag may appear to be too small, but it will easily stretch over the frame. When inserting the knitting needle through the covered frame, it can be pushed through at an angle which makes the whole illusion even more effective.
This Flexible Glass is easily the most effective I have seen and there were very few built so they are hard to come by. I was sorely tempted to keep this bad boy 🙂
_EF A framed mirror is placed within a cloth bag and a large knitting needle is pushed through the bag and mirror. As a finale, the mirror is folded in half! The mirror is then removed from the bag and shown to be completely restored.
A truly wonderful book and tribute to the incredibly talented and inventive craftsman Clarence Miller. DVD included with demonstrations and discussions by Clarence himself of some of his amazing creations. It was a big help in filling in details of Clarence’s work for my History Project.
