Hello Everyone,
I have read all of your input here at the Café, talked with my Magician friends and colleagues, and looked around at the history of PK gimmicks. I have decided to go ahead and continue with my plans to market the gimmick in a DVD package as well as offer the E-Book on my website for a limited time:

http://www.morfinmagic.com/Store.htm

I am very excited about the DVD package. It will include the original gimmick (with a few minor improvements), a "Stealth" gimmick, a DVD on the care & handling of both gimmicks and a copy of the original E-Book. I will be working in conjunction with Jeff Mash over at MJM:

http://www.mjmmagic.com

and I will be filming the DVD at "The California Magic Dinner Theatre" here in Martinez California:

http://www.calmagic.com

I will be offering the package at a special price to everyone who purchased the E-Book from me. I want to thank everyone for all of your interest and support, it means a great deal to me an I appreciate it.

Thanks Hank.

I got the e-book last night and spent the earlier part of this morning building the gimmick. I only had to go out and get one item. Everything else I had around the house.Smile

I got to hand it to you, this is one great idea! No more PK rings for me. This idea has much more flexability than any PK ring on the market. It is so simple but extremely versatile. It can do anything a PK ring can do plus more. I also love the fact that it can easily be ditched.

Thanks for keeping this available. Please keep me informed on when the DVD will be released, and anything else you come up with.

Hank will you be performing at the Calmagic Dinner Theatre? If so will you have any of these on hand there?

Wow, thanks for those kind words. As I've said in the past, I literally went to ACE hardware and played around with many variations on this gimmick. I truly believe that the end result is a great little PK utility item that you can always have on hand and get into and out of within seconds. I'm glad to hear you had most everything on hand. It sounds like you are similar to me in that you have that box full of bits & pieces, glues, magnets, pins, and what not to help you work on your Magic. I'm glad I'm not alone in that. Thank you again for your review, it means a lot to me when people feel that my ideas have merit. I would not have put this out there if I did not feel it would be useful.

edh,
As a matter of fact I WILL be at California Magic this Saturday performing walk around. Wayne Houchin is performing, he is one of the Magicians I have a great deal of respect and admiration for. He's also doing a lecture at California Magic this Thursday, if you can make it you definitely should. go to:

http://www.calmagic.com

to get your ticket. I look forward to meeting you at California Magic.

This is a well-thought-out concept, with some real benefits to performers, whether "workers" or hobbyists. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and very thorough. Good thinking!

This has to be a joke. Cesar Alonzo rips off others (Dick Koornwinder), but decides that independently developed items are too similar to his and should not be sold?

I give you respect for the decision and your actions Hank.

Tony Iacoviello


Hear hear! What a joke indeed. He ripped off my 'Out of Order' trick and called his version 'Instant Oil and Water'. I tried to have him stop selling it but he wasn't interested. I ended up getting him to remove the item from his stand at the last FISM after support and evidence shown to the the FISM president. What a cheek!

Anyway back on topic.

I have just opened and read through the instructions. I want to second Scott's comments: Good concept and the instructions are detailed and clearly presented. The photos are a bit fuzzy but still work well as supplements to the clearly-written text. Nicely done!

Scott,
Thank you so much for that review! that review was so well worded, I just might have to add it to the back of the DVD cover and to the ad copy!

Angelo,
thank you for your very gracious review as well. I'm glad you found my E-Book useful.

PS - Scott Guinn emailed me a suggestion to incorporate with this gimmick that absolutely takes the possible uses to a whole new level! Scott has kindly given me permission to add it into the DVD package which I'm definitely going to do.

Also,
Thanks to Angelo Carbone for his support. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that both Angelo Carbone & Scott Guinn both have some AMAZING effects offered out on the market. I recently picked up "Humbug" by Angelo, and I have several of Scott's E-Books, for you Cups & Balls workers, check out his routine.

Thanks,

Dick,
Thank you, I've got to tell everyone that I'm really happy everyone seems to enjoy my E-Book and has found it worthwhile.

On a personal note Dick, I apologize for addressing your email to Christian, by the name associated with the Payal account, I thought that was your first name...

Dear Tony: You may not know that Cesaral did not invented the gimmick for my trick "Melting Point", I did. Please check with Murphy's Magic Supplies who is selling the trick and who has the legal rights of it. I went to a great deal of a lawsuit against Cesaral here in Spain to prove he tried to rip-off the invention of both the gimmick and the trick. He can only create "remote controlled" tricks...
By the way greetings to Angelo Carbone...!!!

I have not seen all of the various gimmicks discussed in this thread; however, just to set the record straight, unless those "invented" by Cesaral, MarianoG or others laying claim to the idea predate what is essentially the same gimmick as that made in the 1990s for use with the "Badlands Bob" effect produced and marketed by the original Collectors' Workshop (Rich Bloch and Nick Ruggiero) -- and I'm not necessarily claiming that they were the first to make such a gimmick (I wouldn't be at all surprised if the origin is much earlier than that) -- then NONE of those currently producing such gimmicks can legitimately lay claim to being its "inventor." There may be subtle variations in the design of such gimmicks but they ALL serve the same purpose in the same way. If you see any of them it will be obvious that one doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to come up with the idea.

BTW, "Badlands Bob" is a great close-up trick and is still listed in Collectors' Workshop catalog on the current Viking Magic/Collectors' Workshop web site for $45, although it is currently noted to be "out of stock." (If you see this George, "You're welcome.")
