PK SILVERWARE! I think that is the best for a beginner...or mind bender, that spoon bend is awesome.

Get Banachek's video Psychkinetic Silverware. It has everything you need to know, including what kind of forks to buy.

This is the source.

Psychokinetic silverware is great,definately the best for a beginner.After mastering the methods its possible to pull off real looking magic.
I don't think 13 steps has any spoon bending.
Good luck Shrek.

The Patrik Kuffs video is excellent.
You have to give it away to keep it.

Shrek, Check out The Melting Fork availiable from Geoffrey Dove at http://www.mainstreetmagicco.com. I just received mine in the mail. The Gimmick is custom made by an expert craftsman supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity. Really cool melting effect I love it !! Smile

Patrik Kuffs has a very good video. It teaches a lot of metal bends.

Avoid the Melting Fork mentioned above - it is in my opinion and many others an absolute rip off of Guy Bavli's Side Effect but done with a fork instead a spoon. Don't support such rip offs. There is way too many good spoon/metal bending items - Chad Sandborn on his "Mind Bender" DVD, Banachek on his "Psychokinetic Silverware" video (now on DVD), several Alain Nu items in Trapdoor Magazine, Richard Osterlind on his DVD # 3, Guy Bavli on his metal bending videos, etc. There is some excellent routines/thinking in these various sources.

Interesting you mention the two. Not wanting to start anything big, but then you must feel Side effect is an independent creation?

I know specifically what you are referring to ref. Bavli and Nu. It's a good and very valid question which should be addressed. I am by no means an expert in this, don't want to take any "sides", and don't want to open a can of worms but I believe Bavli's effect IS different from Nu's. With Bavli's the spoon is left in an impossible condition in that it is bent in a fashion that you could not physically bend it. With Alain's routine (the name escapes me at present and I am not at my library) the spoon bends at a 45 degree twist. It's NOT left in an impossible condition but DOES get in the condition in an impossible looking fashion. There IS a distinction - I just am not articulating it clearly. Both share a similar methodology if getting to 2 different ends. What is different with Guy's is that you could not physically bend the spoon that way thus you get the magical aspect and a physically impossible object. With the version Geoffrey Dove is selling (and in my opinion is unfortunately a rip off) he has simply substituted a fork instead of a spoon. To me that is equivalent to having someone show you a routine with half dollars and you then claim you have a new creation because you are doing it with quarters.

Guy does also have a lot of other interesting bends as I noted on his various videos. Alain has published several very interesting ideas with the spoon bend in Trapdoor. I still remember watching Alain DEVASTATE a group of waiters and waitresses in a restaurant with his routine as spoons and forks seemed to melt all over the place. It's amazing and if you ever get the chance to see Alain do his routine you'll be lucky you did.

I'm not sure how clear that is - if you have both items it will hopefully make sense.

All I ever needed to know about metal bending I learned from Banachek's PK silverware.

I don't want to sound like the president of the local Banachek fan club but everything I've bought has been outstanding and any questions that I've emailed him on he's replied and that's considerable looking at his schedule. This guy has a great mind and is a nice guy to boot!

I agree Gary. I worked with Banachek on this video/DVD and he is a top notch guy and quite a thinker.

The Melting Fork by Geoffrey Dove is a Melting effect the illusion is the melting of the fork . Guy Bavli side bend is a spoon that appears to bend to the side . Once again Tim trono with all due respect do not review a product if you have no expierence with it . The Melting Fork & chapstick effects are sold world wide with great success.
Best ,
Geoffrey.
