This is a nice looking effect of a key thru bill, the idea that the key is always with you along with your everyday keys,makes for a great anytime effect, my feeling is, it is very pricey for what it is., the demo link is below.

This is the kind of effect I love. Quick, big impact, easy to do and squeaky clean.
Some think Houdini used trap doors in his act, but he was just going through a stage.

Looks very good. But it's really just the pen through dollar trick... but with a key. Right? Or am I missing something? I like both.

It looks better than the other version that came last year or the year before.

Motown, it does. That other one also was reported to be fragile. Chris Smith puts out great products ( and stands behind them ).

Chris Smith is excellent. But this looks a little hinky, in that the key doesn't really look like an entirely authentic key. I guess you could say it's from a new car or something. Am I wrong?

I like it! As long as it is as sturdy as it appears to be in the video.

Looks like the key has to look like that for two reasons. So I'll be interested to see it live in two weeks when Chris is at magi fest. If it looks that good live, I'll be picking one up

I got to see this live and it is top notch. The sugar packet version is GREAT! Wished they had shown that on the demo.

This looks very nice. No key switches and can be examined immediately- that's a great feature, might just justify the price. Can't wait to read some reviews!

I agree with everyone , the effect look great, easy to do and it's always with you, but I still feel $60.00 is a lot for this, or am I just being cheap, I know you can't put a price on a good effect, and that may be the case here,

It might be, but I think I agree with you Dave. I am guessing that because the key is immediately examinable after the effect and if it cannot be figured out- this may be worth it. But boy- Key thru Bill- $60.00. hmmm.

I think it looks like an automobile key you'd currently find.

Figured out? The gimmick is added and taken away under natural moves. Key does not appear gimmick and I doubt most would not figure it out. Quality construction? I hope Smile

How many in the US have a car key (for a car under 5 years old) that doesn't have the "lock / unlock" feature built into the key?

I love Magicsmith stuff, but wonder if this one is a little behind the times. Having said that, if this gets good reviews from those who purchase it, I will be on board!
