Kikuchi Cobra Deck

Cobra DeckCobra Deck

by Kikuchi

Do you remember when this was first introduced to the magic fraternity years ago? This was such a cool trick, we couldn’t wait to demonstrate it at the counter. Each time the Cobra Deck began to move by itself, our customers would always slowly back away and say, “Sold!”

We are happy to announce that the folks at Kikuchi have once again made this Cobra Deck available, and it’s even better than before! It is said that the Cobra Deck is the most incredible version of the classic Haunted Pack effect ever seen, and we agree! You’ll take it with you everywhere!

A card is freely selected from a pack of cards. There’s no force involved here, and the card itself can even be signed, if so desired! The card is returned to the deck and, as the performer squares up the pack and sets it on the table, the top half of the deck eerily and slowly moves forward all by itself!

The deck completes its mysterious journey by cutting itself, leaving one card protruding from the pack! But the cards continue to move, squaring themselves up automatically. Your spectators’ eyes will fall out of their heads as they slowly reach forward to remove the protruding card. You guessed it-it’s the spectator’s selected and/or signed card!

Absolutely nothing is attached to the performer; the deck does all the work through its exquisitely designed mechanism and there is no sleight of hand required, which leaves you free to focus on the presentation!

In addition to the Kikuchi Cobra Deck, you will receive an instructional DVD as well.

by Kikuchi

Answer your cell phone with a flare for the dramatic!

Excuse me, time to answer the phone! You tell your audience that you have a hot date or that you are working on a hot deal and you MUST take the call.

You reach into your pocket to pull out your cell phone. Open it up and it BURSTS into flames! Close the cell phone, extinguish the flames, re-open it again to show it to be a completely normal cell phone with no apparent gimmickry of any kind, and place it back into your pocket.

A truly startling effect you can see from the back row made as only Kikuchi can make, so you know it is a quality item!

Because this product utilizes real fire, it cannot be sold to anyone under the age of 18.

In addition to the Kikuchi Fire Phone, you will receive a generous supply of fluid and instructional DVD.

Book Of Treasure By Ken Scott

Book of TreasureBook Of Treasure
by Ken Scott

The Coloring Book Enters the 21st Century!

You flip through a book titled “The Treasure Map to the Libraries,” showing a picture of a large treasure chest on each page, explaining that “The library is like a treasure chest.” Next you ask the audience, “What kind of treasure you might find in the library?” When they respond “Books!” you flip through the book again. But this time the pictures have changed to books! “That’s right,” you say. “Books are the treasure we find in the library.” You further explain that “The true treasure is the knowledge that we gain from reading the books. And the best part is it’s available to everyone!” As you say this last line you begin to flip through the book again, this time showing treasure chests opened up and full of treasure.

And now for the finale: You now fold the book in half (lengthwise) and have the audience recite the magic words, “Reading is Magic!” As the magic words are said, you pour from the folded book a supply of golden coins!

Double Coincidence By Devin Knight And Al Mann

Double CoincidenceDouble Coincidence
by Devin Knight and Al Mann

Effect

Mentalist tells the audience that before the show, he gave a lady a dictionary, a red crayon and an envelope. He asked her to secretly circle a word and to seal the dictionary in the envelope. She was instructed to tell nobody the word, nor let anyone tamper with the envelope. He says this envelope is still in the audience.
When it’s time to perform this effect, the Mentalist calls two people on stage.

The sealed envelope with dictionary is then retrieved by one of the spectators who holds on to it in full view. The Mentalist picks up a 300 page book and turning his head away, riffles the pages to have one spectator select a page from it. The book is opened at that place and given to spectator. It’s obvious to the audience that the Mentalist hasn’t had a chance to glimpse the pages of the open book. NO PAGE NUMBER IS CALLED OUT AT ANY TIME.

With his back still turned, the Mentalist asks the spectator to silently read the first few lines on the left page. Immediately, with no fishing, the performer describes what the person just read.

This is pretty amazing, but the Mentalist is ready for more, much more. He asks the person to read the first sentence on the right page. He tells the person to choose any object from the sentence and form a picture of it in his mind. The person has more than one choice of objects he could think of.

Neck CrackerNeck Cracker
by Alan Wong

This gimmick will produce a loud crushing sound as if you have cracked your (or someone’s) neck. Just walk up to someone with your neck tilted to one side and wait till they ask you if there is something wrong with your neck or you tell the person you are having a stiff neck today. As you attempt to “adjust” your (or someone’s) neck the gimmick produces a bone crushing sound! You can pretend to crack your neck, elbow, and knuckles with this gimmick. A good addition to use with the arm twisting illusion to crack your joints before or after the illusion.
