For anyone looking for a Sanada gimmick - which there was quite a run on recently, because of the released work of a very clever fellow from the U.K. ;)........
Madhatter has them on special for a ridiculous price - $4

***I am in no way affiliated with Madhatter, Sanada, or the clever fellow from The U.K.

Tried to order 2 and had over $10 in shipping and handling fees. I'm sure you can get them much cheaper.

That does seem steep! I just tried myself, and the least expensive shipping option for 2 gimmicks was even more - $11.92!
ouch!

Only beneficial if you add to the order. In other words buy a few more items that you need and the low prices with the postage still balances out. To buy just 1 or 2 small items, you are correct,the postage will not offset the low initial price.

They will get your money one way or the other. I would rather pay normal price and get free shipping than cheap price and over inflated shipping.

Working from my pockets, and not a Case, I just can't see the worthwhile use of this item. It's "vanish" is little better than an the inferred Ramsey Subtlety and it's Production most likely would require two hands or a Case to set up. Am I missing something? Who uses this?

I actually use one. Great utility device in my opinion. I bought Jay Scott Berry's Cloak Device which is a modified Sanada gimmick making it capable of producing more items because of an inside flap. Great for vanishing, producing, and transformations of sponge balls, silks, currency, thumb coils, and anything you can get into it.

I use one all the time doing standup. My favorite "move" is to vanish a sponge ball, and look at the spectators with my fingers in the "C" shape. I look directly through the "C" at the spectators and look from side to side.

Unbelievably clean looking, since the gimmick is pointing at the floor, and a soft sponge ball compresses to almost nothing.

I love the gimmick. Where could I post or look for someone to mfg a metal Sanada gimmick. It would be easy to periodically repaint it with flesh colored paint.
