On World's Greatest Magic (The first one) there was the World Master of Manipulation from Germany called, I think, Thomas. He performed a routine where the tip of his wand was removed and appeared repeatedly back on his wand. I want to incorporate this in my act and would like to contact him or enquire where such a trick could be purchased.

Can anyone help?

The performer's stage name was/is Topas (I liked the act, too).

His website is http://www.topasmagic.de

Good luck....

Yea, I just saw this act a day ago, Topas is terrific! I know how the wand deal is done, but wouldn't know how to make one.

Yes, the magician you are talking about is named Topas and is from Germany I believe. He does a wonderful act themed around music, glasses and wands.

Just make sure on 2 things before incorporating it into your act. 1) Make sure you ask Topas for permission as that is a piece of his award winning act. 2) Make sure your not building an entire act around other magicians' effects.

Spend the time it takes to create your own work, effects and magic and I can promise you that you will be very pleased.

I saw his act and it's very amazing! Anyone could enlighten me on where could I get the wand which he used to remove the tip of the wand and make it reappear? I wish to incoporate it into a thimble act. Your help will be appreciated.

His wand may not be a marketable item but something he created himself for his act. In either way, it is something that is a big part of his award-winning act and that makes him unique. I would not try and copy it or duplicate it as creativity lies in being different and unique. =)

Ive seen such a wand being used in many manipulation acts especially by Japanese magicians. So I'm thinking that it would be possible to obtain it somewhere. I don't intend to copy or duplicate but to use that wand as part of my act. Just like one sees other magicians using wands to do magic, if others follow suit, would that be considered duplicating? I'm sure the difference lies in the presentation, routining and execution itself. I'm still keen in finding such a wand so if anyone has any leads please do let me know. Thanks.

Vennom. If such a wand does indeed exists out on the market as a marketable item, they by all means go for it, buy it, use it and thinking creatively to develop your own moves and ideas that works for you. My only comment was not knowing for sure if that wand is a marketable item anyone can buy. I would be curious to know myself if you or anyone else does indeed find out.

After hearing what you said Kyle, I think I'm better off trying to make one of those wands myself. I've been searching for that wand for quite a while and thought maybe someone in Magic Café could tell me where I could get it. Kyle, do you happen to know how to make a wand like the one I'm looking for? Let me rephrase, do you know how to make a ordinary wand that is rather light, durable and preferbly hollow on the stick itself. This will be my first time trying to construct something. Your advice would be great! Thanks.

Venom, I do have some ideas for you on how you could construct one or at least some general tips. you may want to PM me though as discussing the mechanics or secrets in an open forum is not allowed. I would like to help you if I can.

Ah dear, why is there so little creativity with new magicians?

Gary:

One word " LAZY". That really sums it up in a nutshell. It becomes much too easy for a magician to copy or mimic what has been done before him. Creativity is hard and takes hard work. It also takes dedication to train your brain to thinking in creative forms. Many folks just get too lazy and want to take the easy way out.

For myself, I have been preaching about creativity in magic for a long time now. It is something I am very passionate about. I will have to share some more thoughts on it if anyone is interested.

Yeah, Topas is great, just to let you all know he has a slower mellow routine with a time theme on youtube. You should check it out.

If I recall the effect that is being discussed... this wand is sold and works under the same principle as the "Rising Wand" by Adams. This is one of those $7.00-10.00 wands, nothing expensive. I am almost positive I used to sell this, and quite honestly it was something we sold to young magicians... Just goes to show you how some of those simple effects can be mindblowing in the hands of a pro. I do believe the "Magicians Insurance Policy" was also on that one.

TItan: I have seen him perform his "Time in a Bottle" routine live and it is a thing of beauty. It really goes to show you just how creative you can take manipulative forms of magic if you allow yourself to expand your mind and think outside of the norm.
