Magnetic Cane by Kenton Knepper – DVD

Posted by Eddy Ray on May 9th, 2007

Magnetic CaneMagnetic Cane
by Kenton Knepper

A favorite among many names from the past, Kenton finally tips his unique handlings and methods to cause canes to adhere to him as if he were a human magnet.

Kenton has performed this on television and at a premiere screening for the movie The Illusionist.

A walking cane (ungimmicked) is examined thoroughly, as are the performer’s hands. The performer magnetizes the cane with his energy.

The cane now sticks to his hands, floats upwards and adheres to his fingers without gimmicks, loops, wires, pins, magnets, etc. The cane may be light or heavy, borrowed or one of your own. You can magnetize solid metal canes or wood ones, golf clubs or swords.

In the vast literature of magic, a surprisingly small portion of it deals specifically with stand-up magic; that is, magic that is performed on a stage or platform and suitable for entertaining and engaging audiences large and small. Thus, finding quality material has always been a challenge for performers who endeavor to present magic in front of a group of spectators. For the first time, the very best stand-up effects, performed and explained by artists who have fine-tuned these pieces to reputation-makers, have been collected in one place. These are tricks that are suitable for platform, stage and parlor presentations.

Little Black Book TestDocc Hilford
by Docc Hilford

Book tests are as popular with mentalists as cut and restored rope tricks are with magicians. Finally, here is one that stands out from the rest.


The mentalist shows a little black book filled with nearly 100 different names and addresses of women. The mentalist gives it to a woman in the audience. She opens the book to any page and chooses one of the names on the pages. She shows it to a man and he also chooses a name from the open book.

The mentalist hands a sealed envelope to the woman to be explained later.

The mentalist starts with a single letter. He identifies a random letter and moves swiftly. Without fumbling or pumping, He correctly identifies the addresses, names, and phone numbers chosen by both parties! He even gives the zodiac signs.

Finally, The mentalist explains that he met with the same girl as chosen by the woman! In the envelope are three souvenirs from the previous night out, a cocktail napkin with lipstick print, a swizzle stick from a swanky night club and a matchbook cover. On the cover is written the same number as was selected by the woman!

The best just got better! Through special arrangement with Martin Lewis, Hocus Pocus is now able to offer his original signature effect with a vast improvement. Over the past several years, we have received many compliments over the cardiographic‘s ease of performing and profound audience impact as well as inquiries into how to make the effect even better. And now, cardiographic is repeatable! The newest version of this effect features a specially gimmicked rising card with two faces! A moment after you perform it with one face, simply turn the card around and work it with the second. It’s that simple and makes working for trade shows or repeat performances more practical than ever! In case you are unaware of how this effect works:
