To follow up on Richard's comments about John Moehring--John has written other outstanding books as well, not the least of which is _Del Ray: America's Foremost_. John's latest book is: _The Magical Life of Marshall Brodien_.

It is rare that a magician who is a great performer/innovator is also a great writer.

I love my Tendo Appearing Cane. It's the best appearing cane I have ever owned.

I assume like other appearing poles it is advisable to storing the cane in the extended form?

Not really, it is the way the metal is cut, that keeps it working, what you should do is wind it tight before putting it a plastic seal-able bag, with all the air pushed out.

Banging it to hare to prove it is solid, is what damages the cane. A little tap is all that is necessary.

Thanks Bill. I just got a Mahka Tendo Cane and although it makes suggestion of applying car wax to the metal there is no mention of proper way to store it.

Oh, I forgot, after winding tight, put a rubber-band or twist tie around it to hold it closed. Better yet a zip tie would be better, not chance of marking it up. Wal-Mart has a package of small zip ties for a couple dollars. Yes, I suggest you cut it off when you are going to use it, and replace with a new one each time.
