My spelling might not be correct but you need the Harakhan canes... They are expensive, though...

Harakhan stuff is really hard to come by. Stevens stocks some of his cages but I'm not to sure about the canes. All the Harakhan stuff is hand made by a guy in japan. They are the best. Try to get in contact with Stevens magic, they can probably help you.

Harakhans stuff are the best..i use their torch to canes as well as appearings....Mahka Tendo from Japan produces some nice ones too(they'll work as vanishing too, compresses.) He now produces them in multi color...I have the white ones, and they are beautiful..

I think Hocus-Pocus(they sell multi-color ones) and Denny Lee stock them, though not sure if they have any now...

I still prefer the Mahka Tendo cane bought mine in Japan at a Magic Convention.

Do the mahka tendo ones have a sparkly end and can you buy vanishing ones from him too?

I heard that you lubricate them with car wax, is this true?

thanks

George

Yes George you use car wax. Although the wax is more to keep them from getting small scratches and less for lubrication. I think the Tendo canes are great. Same functionality as the Harakhan cane only in various colors.

The ends are sparkly. Not sure about vanishing.

Daytona has harakhan vanishing and appearing. They are a bit pricy however. :/ Pretty much anything metal is decent.

I've used and tried different metal canes. They are not all alike. The best I've used are the Tendo cane. Very smooth and reliable. No oil either.

Go for the Mahka Tendo! Mine just came in and is 10000000x times better than any other one ( just my opinion :P)

Is there a big difference between metal and plastic?
Message: Posted by: EvanMagic (Jan 1, 2005 10:29PM)
Yes a big difference. Metal has more of a flashy, fast appearance that looks like they appear withing your grasp. Plastic is still good, but will not have such a long life expectancy as a metal cane, and the opening speed is not as fast. Be aware metal canes can be hazardous if used improperly at least the ones I know about. I put a hugge cut on my finger when I was playing with one at a friends place.

Let me know if this helps

I agree with hagemagic and EvanMagic. I have many diffrent canes and IMHO the tendo cane is the best. The release, and the over all construction are the best I have ever come across. car wax instead of oil is also a huge plus.
