Exquisite!

George has done it again! I have all of his beautifully turned wood classics, and this one is absolutely perfect in my book. The oranges are really pieces of art in themselves, along with the vase. The Asian mahogany and George’s knowledge and application of finishes make this really a beautiful piece, just as are Viking/CW’s Ball Vases and Indian Cups. This is a wonderful Collector’s piece and you will enjoy performing it as well. I love it.

Beautiful Precision Quality

When it comes to magic, I love everything Egyptian. As soon as I saw the Mummy Mystery on the Magic Wagon website, I knew I had to have these little beauties. At the offering price, I knew this item would not last long. The props are precision crafted of the highest quality, consisting of three different colored mummies and a sarcophagus just large enough for any one of the mummies to fit.

The effect is simple. The magician asks a spectator to pick one of the three different colored mummies and place it in the sarcophagus out of site of the magician. When the lid is placed on top of the sarcophagus, the sarcophagus is then placed in front of the magician, who then immediately discerns which mummy is inside.

I highly recommend this beautiful piece of micro magic for the collector or for the magic buff who likes to be able to carry around a unique magic prop and perform on a moment’s notice. Comes with a nice carrying bag.

Go get this one right away, as you won’t be disappointed.

Baffling and Unique

Here is another baffler from Max Krause. I love this effect of Max’s, too, as it has a unique twist that makes it different from any other torn and restored bill effect.

Basically, the magician shows the spectator what looks to be two halves torn from the same dollar bill that he has recently found on the street. However, when he looks more closely at the two halves, he notices that each half has a different serial number. Realizing he has two torn halves of two different dollar bills, he proceeds to try and restore the bills to make one fully restored dollar bill. He folds the two halves a couple of times and then unfolds the bills right in front of the spectator’s eyes. Magically, the two halves have been fully restored into one single dollar bill. The kicker is that the restored dollar bill has two different serial numbers on the bill, the very same numbers that were on each of the two halves previously shown. It’s quite incredible to actually see that the dollar bill has two different serial numbers. Never seen anything like it!

This is fun to perform and really fools the audience. I highly recommend you get this Max Krause effect. You will enjoy carrying this little gem around with you and performing impromptu or in a close up routine.

Outstanding

Somehow I was fortunate enough to come across Max Krause and discovered some incredible new magic that he has created. Max has devised a unique method of being able to predict a serial number of a randomly selected dollar bill from a group of 7 bills. I don’t want to give the method away, but I will tell you Max’s approach is brilliant and innovative…nothing you would ever suspect nor would you ever realize it is possible. This is a great item and a "must have" if you like to do mentalism and to perform impromptu anywhere, anytime, and in the most ordinary of conditions.

My words can’t do justice to this item, as the method is infallible. It is a winner, and I highly recommend it. Even Larry Becker praises it for its methodology and performance possibilities. The only thing you need to focus on is your presentation. I highly recommend you get it. You will absolutely have fun with it.

Outstanding

Many know and perform a version of the classic "Mis-Made Bill". It is a great trick and startling to see the ordinary bill turn into a "mis-made" bill. But what makes this different is that you can show the serial number of the bill beforehand and then show the bill transformed as a mis-made bill…and the serial numbers are exactly the same, thus eliminating the notion that you switched bills. This is a beautiful item, and the CD that comes with the trick is fantastic. It teaches you every detail of how to perform the trick.

I highly recommend the Ultimate Mis-Made Bill. It is another creation of Max Krause, and it is one you will carry with you to perform anytime someone asks you to perform magic. You will love having this in your magic repertoire and performing this classic. Nothing like this has been offered before to the magic community, and Max has done magic a favor by offering it to magicians and magic enthusiasts.

I highly recommend it.

Diabolical and Outstanding

This is another Max Krause winner that absolutely will slay ’em. You borrow a bill, ask a spectator to write down the serial number and then you cause the bill to disappear. So far so good, right? What slays ’em is that you cause the bill to reappear in the most outlandish and/or impossible location right before the spectators’ eyes. They have been watching you the whole time and see you vanish the bill…but when you cause it to reappear in a most insane location, and you are able to prove it is the same bill when the spectator verifies the serial number of the bill, well, just watch their reaction.

This is as close to real magic as you can get. There is no explanation as to how you accomplished the effect.

I highly recommend this effect. It is a great buy and one you will enjoy performing in any setting.

Beautiful Craftsmanship

I have owned several sets of mummies and this latest set by Francois Danis is exquisite. Everything from the beautiful handmade box to house the mummies to the beautifully hand painted mummies. The props are particularly eye catching, and of course, the routine is what you make of it. All in all, this is a wonderful item and one of my favorite collectible pieces. For beautifully made handmade micro magic, Francios is superb. If you don’t have a set of mummies in your collection, get this set. If you have mummies in your collection and don’t have this set, then GET THIS SET.

Beautiful!

When asked by Magic Wagon to list my favorite effects that I would like to see Magic Wagon make, the Blue Phantom was at the top of my list. I was very excited to see them release their version of this classic item. It is one of the coolest pieces I have acquired from MW.

The micro magic size of their version of Blue Phantom is perfect to display on your shelf and perform on a moment’s notice. The Magic Wagon quality is superb as usual, and the combination of brass and teak for the tube and base, and the beautifully finished checkers really set this apart from the original.

I highly recommend this item. You will be proud to have this in your collection.

Outstanding!

I love Dean Dill’s magic, and this latest creation is really incredible! His methods are so clever and diabolical. (I have his "Blizzard" card trick and "Dean’s Box", and they are great, too!) The reviews from other magicians are nothing short of fantastic. This effect is so much fun to perform, and it really is astounding to your audience. Dean’s construction and routining of this effect are great…top notch quality and a performer’s dream! The props are very ordinary looking, a 3-ring binder, yellow pad, and an ordinary looking envelope like you’d get at any office supply store. Dean’s instructions are very detailed and well thought out, and he gives you every move and the thinking behind each one.

The effect consists of introducing an ordinary envelope and placing in front of the audience. The the magician/mentalist calls on a spectator to draw a picture of his/her favorite card on a yellow pad and sign their name on the picture. Then the envelope that has been in full view of the audience is opened by the spectator and inside is the folded card the spectator just drew.

This is a performer’s delight. I highly recommend it. Dean is such a wonderful guy, and his magic is as well.

Beauties!

I do love the Color Changing Knives, and I have long cherished my Jimmy Sanders 3 Knife Set of black stag and white pearl. I am happy to say that as beautiful and fun to use as the Sanders set is, I find Joe Mogar’s set of turquoise and red jigged bone knives outstanding to perform and more beautiful to look at as well! I would have a set of Joe’s knives in every color Joe could make if I could afford it. Suffice it to say that these are all I’ll ever need.

If you like the Color Changing Knives, get this set or a custom made set from Joe with your own preference for colors added to make it unique for you. If you don’t do Color Changing Knives, you should add it to your repertoire. These knives are great to carry around and do impromptu or part of your act. Check them out. You will NOT be disappointed.
