I am looking for some close up for Adults, would Ultraslice and crystal cleaver fool adults in a close up performance ?


Crystal cleaver is fantastic and will fool everyone. They won't even be able to come up a possible way the magic happened. Make sure you get an authentic Crystal Cleaver and not a knock-off. The knock offs are junk!

Yes, I brought a rip-off crystal cleaver from my local store and it breaks within the day I played with. And the price of the original one is totally fair.

'Water Suspension' was always my favourite effect.

Although not in the original Tenyo instructions, here's an idea.

With the apparent Ye Olde Magic Shop instructions written on a two-sided piece of card (in large Capitals, bullet-pointed so the spectators can see); and the cup inverted over a spectators head; you get a great reaction when you remove the card to read what's on the other side!

It's a very simple prop, with a failproof yet ingenious method - that with the right routining and gags, can be transformed into a very entertaining routine.

'Drink in the News' (liquid in newspaper) comes a close second.

It would not take too much trouble of course to see how both tricks could be blended together. Smile

And as Jeremy Durham states, effects with liquids are probably the most powerful as people know that you cannot palm nor manipulate it! Add into the mix that all you are using is a basic metal cup; and a newspaper. Both innocent looking items that do not appear overly 'prop-ish'.

P.S. just to add that both effects can actually be used in a close-up, table situation (particularly as water is always available/to hand). Just a tad different from the rest of the guys - who only ever seem to want to have a chosen card signed with a Sharpie, before it comes back to the top of the pack again.....then again.....and again..... Smile

Just my opinion - please don't shoot me for it!

"Water Suspension" is not an original Tenyo item. It was marketed in the US by Abbott's I think. Can't remember offhand. It's all in Tenyoism.

Zig-Zag Cig always blew them away. Might not be my favorite but it sure delighted everyone. I'm a bit partial to What's Next as it's so simple and effective. I used to do it for years at kids' shows and they went nuts. Also Monkey Bar, of course.

One of my favorites is Cubio. I have the McDonalds Big Mac Cubio and I use it all the time for kids (easier to explain a tiny burger than an odd cube, IMO). Goes over fantastically!

Crystal Cleaver is still one of my favourite. Also the Crystal Pyramid is very nice (but not in a quiet room) Smile

Any Tenyo item that makes noise is easily covered with patter. However, specifically regarding "Crystal Pyramid," if you read the instructions carefully it explains how to avoid noise. Or you can read it in my book Tenyoism.

Hi Richard, thanks for your answer. Cool, I don't know about your book. Do you know a seller in Europe? I would like to buy your book!
Thanks!

Alex, it is only available directly from me (shipment is expensive because it weighs 20 pounds, but it does come by DHL Express): http://geniimagazine.com/kaufman/store/html/92.html
