So if I understand if properly, Karate Coin is kind of like a jumbo cigarete-through-coin coin? It looks solid until you push your finger through, but can't be inspected?

Does the Urban coin have anything that needs to be replaced/wears out? I have some suspicions, but my first guess would be something sticky...

I should have just said what you stated perfectly - A jumbo Cig thru Coin but with a different mechanism.

You are on the right track with Urban and it does need replacement but not often. It isn't tape. Way more magical a solution. And you cannot do it to a regular coin.

Certainly not tape at that price. Smile I was thinking something more akin to Octopalm, but that would wear out more quickly. It's a pity they're all so expensive - it's hard to commit to that without knowing more. :sigh:

I was in your same exact situation. I have understood Star Manager's endorsement to be very favorable, but I personally can't justify the price for a sticky coin. Maybe magikoins will clarify more about the gimmick.

In my opinion coin gaffers would sell a lot more product if they described their products in more detail and even showed more detailed photos. It's not like we are going to make these gaffs on our own. Now I realize that some such as Todd Lassen are not interested in selling more products, they're as busy as they care to be, which is totally fine and perhaps the same goes for Magic Koins.

Exposure is one thing but when you are spending hundreds of dollars then exposure schmosure, a buyer needs to know a bit more than it is a fantastic gaff that will allow you to do incredible things. I need to know EXACTLY what I am getting to determine if I can use it and if it's right for me. None of the descriptions on Magic Koins website even inspire me to inquire more about what a certain gaff is or what it can do.

In fact if they gave controlled access to detailed photos showing the actual workings, their sales would likely increase ten fold. That's porn for coin lovers.
But again, maybe they are all as busy as they want to be.

$100 to find out is a bit beyond most people's comfort zone.

Hi,

I don't enjoy talking about prices. I just tell you all is handmade without any Automatic CNC. When you buy 30.00$ a card gimmick, the price is expensive too (when a deck of card is only 3.00$ for 52 cards), it's same with coins... And the coins don't needs to be replace after been used a few, following you during all your life.

MKS Karate coins, exist since 2011, owners love them cause it allow you to perform all other Karate coins tricks. 3 coins (at least) are necessary to build it. I don't think knowing how it's made will help you in any way. Just that's a different system allowing you to show the coin front and back, and visualy without change or masking the coin, you clearly penetrate the coin, and showing both face to your audience, and restoring it in the same way.

The others manufacturers don't explain or show in detail how the gaff is made on their public shop (except on private blogs). My shop is for magicians only. No interest to show a shell mouth open to be viewing by anyone. it's my vision/opinion. And if you watch closely on my website, most of the time the bad side appear, but always assembled (only people knowing what to search can find, but ...).

All the MKS Products (Karate, Neokito, Urban, Ramsay,...) only can be purchased from my shop. I'm the creator and the only one to made them, so normaly, no copy on the market. For this too, I don't wanna show my gaffs in details and like this slow down the copy (but is it realy works???).

sell more and cheaper ??? I love the idea, but not possible if all is handmade. 2-3 hours are necessary to made a coin Set. and most of my production is made with Silver Coins. You don't only pay the gaff, but the idea, the R D, prototypes, the coins, the handcraft, the crashed coins, Tax Fees, etc..

i do my possible to speak english correctly, so it's not easy all the time to explain all in details in this language. Thanks in advance.

Here is few links, on my products.

As I am currently in search for a nice sun/moon set (and I missed Todd Lassens flash sale two days ago) I found this thread and also found that we have a coin gaffer here in Europe, even living in the country next door Smile So I ordered a sun/moon set yesterday and I am really looking forward to this.
What I really really like already: First MKS offers a really HUGE variety of different coins, just take a look at the beautiful 5 Francs and 20 Centavos coins! And second, concerning sun/moon, he offers standard and reverse sets so you have all possibilities at your fingertips to tell the sun/moon story the way you like it best. Awesome! I will report back when I receive the set, I hardly can wait to play with them.

When you have your coins do post a review it would be interesting to hear your thoughts, I personally purchased a sun and moon set for the Sayoya routine off todd and the workmanship is incredible it's just perfect in every way.

I have coins from Auke van Dokkum. I ‘m very pleased and really like them. Unfortunally Auke is past awah (R.I.P). A few years ago I red at the Café about Magik Koins. It mooier good and the proces are right. Tod Lassen are maybe the best, but also I red that E-mailcontact (for info and ordening not that fast.). So I made contact with Thierry. He is helpfull and kind. There was a moment that we couldn’t understand each other (for both of us are English not the first language.) Probely my fault. So by it was solved by calling and made the order 5 sun/moon coins. I ‘m looking forward to get the coins and to work with it. I let you know the quality, but believe in his great work.

I have bought several coins from Magikoins and found always excellent quality and customer support.
Thierry was kind enough to even find coins with a specific matching date on it!
I do not have any Lassen coin to compare with (from Europe it's almost impossible to buy from Lassen, as you would have to stay awake at night and catch one of his blog updates almost in real time! ;-)
I have a Schoolcraft expanded shell though, as Thierry doesn't manufacture expanded shells (I think rightfully so) and the quality of MKS is certainly at least at par with Schoolcraft.
