Hey guys, I perform loads of fork bending but stopped performing the fork break because the spectators can usaully hear the crack of the fork when I break it making the reveal worthless. Any tips on avoiding the crack when I perform?

Are you using ceramic forks or something? I've never heard of this from anyone before.

C'mon, now that did make me laugh!
Or you could simply stop allowing people to watch, or even go solo.
Okay okay to answer the question; To be honest I've never heard anyone say they had a problem with this. Unless you do a silent act then I suggest you cough, fart (only with the lower working classes of course) or use emphasisation as you talk to them. I maybe spelt that wrong by the way.

Do NOT crack the fork. Let it almost break, but leave it just hanging on. Banachek persons a brilliant move where he does this and then slowly tilts the fork in the air and allows it to drop onto his hand. If you practise, and add some "Jedi force" jesters, it looks like you are breaking the tip off the fork off without ever even touching it!

Fart really loud when you're breaking the fork. No one will even notice the "crack" of the breaking fork. Trust me, I've tested this many times.

Or... Don't break the fork. Isn't it called metal bending? Does breaking it make it better somehow? I find a twist to be much more popular with people and they usually are even more amazed and baffled because while they can break a fork themselves by bending it back and forth over and over, not many will be able to put a twist in the fork. That, to them, is truly astounding evidence of mind powers.
