Wow, a folding key from Porper, with a new internal work of the folding apparatus hidden inside the key. Must be a good concept.

Saw the product here:

It is for real. The work even amazed me. Have just devised a new handling for the key into a bottle.... the ring thru key is a piece of cake. Tomorrow will be re-writing the final instruction book.

Assuming the photographed key is the gaffed one, not the spare, it looks truly amazing. I can't wait to hear more about it.

Cheers,

Tiki..

The key in the photo on our website http://www.hocus-pocus.com is the actual gaffed key.

When we demonstrated this at lunch with Paul Gross he jumped right on it. Yes, that photo on http://www.hocus-pocus.com IS THE KEY. We searched and searched for months to find the quality key that we could to the work on and it has paid off. Getting it in and out of a bottle is far easier than a coin, and the handling is simplicity in itself.

... sounds and looks good.

But not usable for users outside US. Key looks not in any way like any european key!
Otherwise I'd have ordered it. But this key looks like ... ha, don't know .... something special, but not a key!

Sounds like the value of my Sterling/Kaznetsis "Mercedes Bends" key either just went way up or way down..we'll see!

Do you have to smash the bottle to retrieve the key? This key looks fine to use in the UK as far as I can see. Looks like any regular key.

The key is actually a Ford or Lincoln key. I don't know if Ford U.K. uses the same keys, but... if anyone in various countries has samples of similar keys, we'd be glad to look at them.

NO NO you don't have to break the bottle to get it out. There are two ways to get the key OUT... depending on the direction you go in with it.

Fat end? You can pull it out easy with a needle-nose plyers or a big tweezers. And the switch is easy and the ditch is putting the plyers away.

Pointed end out... heheheh, too easy. But takes a little deceptive move (no skill)... what you do is ask spectator to grip part of key sticking out of bottle and IT WILL NOT COME OUT.

But you can pull it out, either openly or there is a nice switch.

Tested with glass Perrier bottle and plastic water bottles.

Easy to do as DRINKING WATER (C)BUMA

I got a chance to see this key at the Castle swap meet this weekend, and let me tell you it is a thing of beauty! I will also say that having owned a Mercedes Bendz Key at one time, this one is FAR superior! It is typical Porper quality ... EXCELLENT!! I highly recommend this!

I keep hearing the word switch. Does that mean that THE key is not examinable post effect. Thanks

According to the ad on HP, the key can be examined.

It can be LOOKED AT, but I would not hand it to someone. Hey it bends. However we have more than one handling that includes a little or no skill switch that is covered nicely.

And three other magacians havae offered moves and ideas already, so we are revising the instructions.
