So glad I waited on the Shift Self Bending Fork, cuz a key is so much more practical and impromptu. What do you guys think?

Is it a worthwhile investment? Any negatives?

Looking forward to the reviews! Wonder if it has to be performed in a closed hand. Demo shows it visually bending but when performed it is revealed after the hand is opened.

I like the idea of having it on the key chain. I am also looking forward to hearing some reviews.

Well, I'm gonna take the plunge and just placed order. So will let you know once I receive it.

After the bend, people will freak out and ask "How will you use key now? Bend it back!" Any thoughts on comebacks?

I think you'd better get it in your hands and see how it really works before coming up with a presentation.

I am very interested in this as well and eager to hear some personal feedback. I am also curious at the ease of reset wihtout the use of key straightening pharmaceuticals.

If it works the same as the fork it will not need to be done in a closed hand. You will be able to do it with spec placing their finger in center of key and watch it visually happen. I "had" the fork. Very cool. But mine was defective & had to send it back & at that time had no replacements. I will end up purchasing the key as well. I too think key is much more practical. And is a better reason you need to take it back. Because it is YOUR key. If your bending just "any" fork why can't you just leave it. Quite hard to explain you can't leave your "impromptu" $200 bending fork with them.

Reset time? I assume you still need a can of a certain something?

Would like to hear some reviews. I seem to always be disappointed by Ellusionist

I REALLY like this with a key. Surprised we haven't seen this applied to keys before.
Silver ware always looked great, but did not usually feel organic to provide your own.
Using a key of your own, along with an expanded routine utilising borrowed keys, make introducing this gimmick VERY natural.
Do some other bends with their keys, finish with this, and they will remember an unbelievable experience.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

I won't forget you Robert.

I like Andrew Garrards key routine. The effect is as if the key goes in the hand straight as well as signed and you can hand it out to keep. And repeat with no secret break. Most that have these special keys never rehearse a practical presentation cause they just want to go out and have people bend keys.

People want the key after it's bent but you can't leave it with them. Uh oh!

A 99$ piece for the drawer.

This looks great! I will probably place my order soon.

Here are my concerns:
-The reset. Knowing the method of reset with the original Shift fork, it seems like a lot of work after each performance.
-If the key is in the spectator's hand, they might try to unbend it. I'm afraid that this will cause a defect in the memory metal.

Audience management. Keep 'em close, naturally. And as soon as they open their hand and see the bent key, take it back to hold it up for all to see. Then don’t hand it out again till the next time. To be honest it would be tough for someone to start bending the key back without you seeing that they are doing something. Just don’t let them get that far!

I personally have never gone in for any of the bending props. Mainly because most of them have involved tableware and - as someone posted above - that's just not something you usually have in your pocket! And if you pretend that the utensil is from the restaurant you happen to be in you'll raise suspicions when you insist on taking the fork or whatever with you when you walk away. But I think I will be purchasing me one of these keys. Just looks too darn good to pass up - especially at this price!

Thanks!

Well, I ordered mine.

But audience management can only get you so far. Especially for the high school seniors I often perform for...

It's your only key to your house, why would you give it away?
