Jay you have different version phork metal memory. I see your demo. because metal memory must be straigthen with ice cube or refigerator. and phork another if handle with only warm hand people see like visual fork bend and can bend straighten. And people can be examine. but diffrent with you is, fork metal memory phisicaly not natural fork. But phork phisicaly like natural fork. I love it.

This baby beats the Keren fork tenfold, period.

The way I would perform it is with a combination of Banacheck moves and then bring in Phork for close combat...

I think for what it is it should be priced higher to keep it away from the youtube brats and the curious.

Hi Silvio,

Thanks for your interest and kind words. We have included a routine with the permission from Banachek and this adds even more value to the package, as Banachek is probably one of the best resources that we magicians have for metal bending.

Phork is worth every penny. You guys have no idea of the HUGE amount of research, investement, time, dedication and nights without sleeping (literally) that we have been through to create Phork.
We manufactured around 30 prototypes and constantly changed them and improved them until we got what you see today. I wanted everyone to get the best so we didn't rushed the release, it took us years. And because of all of this, I can say with confidence that once you test it you'll fall in love with it. It's very smooth and extremely easy to handle.

Again I recommend everyone interested to go to a magic shop and see it live as I am very confident with what you'll see.

I stand behind it 200%. If for any reason you are not happy with it, just email me and we will work on something.

all the best

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for your kindness. It's only a simple, unedited homemade demo video, but I guess that from the video you guys get the idea of how easy is to bend it. It's very very smooth.

I also have pictures of the Phork available for anyone interested.

Cheers

Hi, if not too much. Does it needs some "fluid" just like for the Yves Doumergue Key bending, to get it into position or is it self-contained ? It is not that easy to get the spray where I am.
Thanks and if it was too much too ask, sorry!

Hi Allan,

Thanks for your question, and no problem at all. I can answer your question: You don't need to worry about being difficult to get "fluid" there, as in the Phork package you'll learn how to set up the unit without that. Remember, after the setup Phork will remain straight and it will only bend when touched. It can remain straight for hours and hours.

You are very welcome Jay. We all have longed for a memory alloy that stays straight at room temperature and bends by touch. That's how this thing should have been designed and made in the first place. I wanted to include a clean fork bend in my TV demo and bought the Keren fork for 700 bucks.
When my confederate, dressed as a waiter, came along with the tray the darn thing was already bent. Plus, after three tries the freezing spray was empty. The very next day I sold the *** thing.

Very well done brother!

-and I really like your Water to Beer as well.

Hi Silvio,

Thanks for your kind words.

I know what you mean. Some years ago I went to a TV show with one of Yuvals forks, I had to take a cooling bag with two ice packs, and when I got there, I even had to ask the producers to place it on the fridge. As soon as I removed the fork from the ice packs, it started bending in seconds and it didn't looked natural, and realistic at all.

From that day on, I decided that I would develop something specially designed for workers. A fork that looks and feels like a real fork, and that remains straight at room temperature for hours and hours. This suits every performer.

With Phork you can also place it on the spectators outstretched palm and it will start to bend on a very visual way. In the instructional DVD we have also included some routines and ideas with contributions from Dee Christopher and Banachek. (thank you guys!)

If anyone has any questions, concerns, comments, ideas, suggestions, please feel free to ask, I'm always available to make sure everyone will be happy with their purchase.

All the Best

Is the re-set time any different to any of the other memory metal effects out there?
