As I stated in an earlier post..Zigzag Cigarette/Pencil.

I recently took this out of storage, and replaced the cigarette with a pencil. I use the 'marking the middle piece ruse' [dry erase marker]. Folk's at my family restaurants absolutely love it.

I would really like to see this in an Elite version *[that would accommodate a standard 3 1/2" golf pencil]With the original version I have to shave the pencil down 1/4" first.
This is a great illusion!

They already make an "elite" version of this effect. It's called Hole in One

I've always wanted to see this done up in brass and made to look (and hopefully work) as a lighter.

Well, same basic effect and principle, but I don't think that really qualfies as a "Tenyo Elite." I was thinking more of it being made with a similar theme... with a large glass pyramid, a carved wooden altar, etc.

Not really the same in size or portability.

I realize it's not really part of the Tenyo Elite concept, but wouldn't it be great if some of these were made not just with better materials, but also as "parlor-sized" versions? Crystal Pyramid and Crystal Cleaver could be works of art if they were about 10" tall.

I'm envisioning something with the beauty of "Sword of the Ring" (pictured below) combined with the Tenyo functionality. Ok... actually it could be made even more beautiful than "Sword of the Ring." An Ornately carved wood chest with a real (jewel-adorned?) dagger. Instead of a finger ring, use a silver (or gold?) plated steel O-ring. Prison Box and Mobile Illusion would also work great if done in larger scale.

Apart from particular items to be made elite, I have a personal cliche on tenyo items made with Examinable dupes to throw at curious spectators.

afterall, they might not be at all skeptical; the design of the props alone draws too much appeal to get their hands on them.

For example, I want an elite version of the Invisible zone that comes with an actual pen and an examinable duplicate.

then of course the Prison Box and Crystal cleaver!

There are a lot of great suggestions in this thread!
I would like to add 'BILLSCAPE'; it is already of very good quality , however it could always be made more professional looking Smile

'SANDWICH PLATTER' is another great trick that could do with a more professional look, i.e. with bicycle cards Smile

I've found Crystal Cleaver to be unusable because it talks real loud at the magic moment. It's gotta be absolutely silent.

I'm not sure why it has to be absolutely silent. The "click" sound is actually very useful because it sounds like the sword is hitting the ring then penetrating through.

That's what I say when mine "clicks". I say "there. It just went right through the ring".

Crystal Cleaver and Midas Machine for sure! I would love to get another Midas Machine if anyone out there has one to sell. I would definately but 2 Crystal Cleaver elites!
The Magical stage parallels that of the Stage of Life. We can step off, re-direct, and Create new Miracles as easily, and as naturally as taking in a breath...
