I am just wondering if the appearing wand is also available in metal or just the fantasio plastic versions only? If it is available which dealer carry it? Thanks for the help!

You can also find them in food grade cellulose(?)...a smaller version of the appearing pole/straw.

Yes, I have one made of metal, I think it was made here in the Czech Republic - if you are interested, I can obtain one for you

Walsh, (later Fabjance making Walsh) and Harrakan all made very good metal appearing wands on the same order as an appearing metal cane.

I bought a metal vanishing wand about 30 years ago at an IBM convention and still use it. I believe it was from a dealer in Hawaii, may have been James Yoshida but I can't remember for sure. Pretty sure he also sold metal appearing wands too. They were gold in color and really well made. Wish I could locate a dealer now. Let me know if you have success in tracking any down. I've searched but without any luck.

Jimmy Yoshida sold the Harrakan products. Harrakan is not making much anymore. Marko Tendo was using the same source to make this canes but that is gone also.

Thanks, Richard, for the info on Jimmy Yoshida. It has been quite a while (30 years or so) since I last met Yoshida.

http://www.magic.org/store/product_info.php?products_id=4272 <---Not sure about that one, being reserve only and all. If they are in stock, it's not a terrible price.

http://www.magic.org/store/product_info.php?products_id=6218 <---Seems a little more reliable. I don't own either product, but I've been eyeing them for quite some time.

http://www.magicgeek.com/appearing-wand-steel-538.html <---I'm guessing it's the same as the one above, but I figured I would include the link because of the better picture as well as the video.

I have an original Russ Walsh Vanishing Wand, and an Appearing Wand by Harrakan from Japan in Bronze.

If interest contact for the Appearing model.
