Picking up on an earlier comment about BS written on the tips of the wands and it feeling like someone else wand. I wonder if there will ever be an option to have your own initials on the wand. I have had the Silver Engraved Cups for many years and they are stunning (simply the best on the market). I really would like the matching wand - but if I'm going to invest in such a beautiful (and personal) object such as an engraved magic wand - I find it hard to have someone else's initials on it. I'll send a message to Brett in the morning to see his thoughts on it, (I can fully understand why he wants his initials on his items), but it may be nice to have an option. Any thoughts?

Clearly you should just change your name so your initials match!
As a matter of fact, I have a friend who's initials are 'BS' - I should let him know about these...

In all seriousness, let us know what you find out.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one to feel this way.

Yep Bruce Smith (magic guru of Hamleys) often comments that the cups have his initials Smile
Sent an email off - Brett is always lovely and whatever the answer,it won't distract from the quality of some amazing props. I just can't think of another time I've performed with a prop that displays someone else's logo so it feel a bit weird. Maybe others like logos and brands?

I kind of get the initials thing, but I guess I regard it more along the lines of a maker's name being on clothes: Levi, Calvin Klein, Bill Blass, and so on...
I never feel like I'm wearing someone else's clothes Smile

Personally, I'm ambivalent, as long as the initials aren't something that is blatantly obvious to a spec.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Cary Grant avoided clothing with brand names visibly on them. He refused to advertise any clothing company. I'm also ambivalent about Brett's initials on his wands. Is anyone going to point the wand straight at the spectator for any length of time? I doubt they are going to notice the engravings on the tips.

You mean like the way it is on 90% of the clothing branding? Smile

The first line was about clothes, the last was about magic props Smile

Two sets of Sherwood's wand pouches arrived and they are gorgeous and well made. Both of my 2 piece wands are now in better storage. My Nicot bar cup is also in a Sherwood drawstring cup bag. Brett's products are among the finest.

Such beautiful cups and wands. I'm in agreement with others that it's a shame he puts his initials on the end of the wands, but IT DOES lend itself to some good patter. Hoping I can save up and buy some of these....Once my skills are up to par.

I was fortunate enough to recently receive an all-silver engraved Chop Cup, and a snakewood wand with engraved silver tips. Not that any additional testimonial is needed, but absolutely stunning work from Brett as always, and the perfect compliment to my existing set of the engraved silver cups. The new cup transporter bag is also terrific.

I have a set of the brass satin cups and am hoping to do them justice.

Little query

One of the three cup.s sings like a bell when tapped with a wand. Really took me by surprise first time. Beautiful.

The other two don't.

No visible difference between them.

Have I been lucky once or unlucky twice
