Thanks for the amazing response. I'm on my way home from FISM where me and Arkadia sold and demonstrated my products. We got a massive response and a wonderful quote from Uri Geller as well. I sold out almost everything so now a new period of time in the workshop starts. I have come up with a new nice move and routine where the spectator wears the amulet during the performance. Thanks to the magnetic locker in the necklace chain, it is very easy to remove the necklace from the spectator when it is time to do the revelation. No need for clumpsy hands around her neck, just a gentle pull in the chains and the engraved surface hangs right in front of her eyes. Beautyfull imo.

I've been using Engraved as part of the closer in my stage show, and the versatility and impact of this trick is amazing!
First of all you have to realize that to the audience there is no freaking way you could get the prediction into metal while in full view on stage. So you had to have done it before you entered the stage.

As a convincer it is THE MOST powerful gimmick I've used.
Say you try to “influence” them and then you need to show that you did indeed know and influence their choices, you just show them the information engraved in metal!
Present that right and it will leave them without any other explanation except that you did know their choices.
Trust me I can tell from experience it's a killer that people mention. I have had people come up to me and say “I thought I knew how you did it, until you took out that key-ring”

You can work it into your show in so many ways thanks to the choices of design. You can use it as a keyring, with a casual design making it look like it belongs to a set of car-keys, or make it look like a medallion with pictures of old ancestors.
Or anything you want, because you can easily make your own image to slip to the front of the engraved gimmick.

I highly recommend it. The craftsmanship is first-class, the explanation is great and once you've tried it you'll be hooked.
Buy it! Or don't, and let me have this gem for myself Smile

I really hope this doesn't count as asking for exposure, and if it does please ignore it.
How many performances can I get out Engraved before needing a refill?

Having never used an effect like this my initial assumption is one effect per refill but if I'm wrong, I can only be pleasantly surprised =)

Be pleasantly surprised, then. You need to reset, not refill.

Oooo fantastic! The reason I asked is there was an option on the site to buy it with refills.
Thanks for the reply Bob.

Does anyone do an effect where you can give the disk away?

If you do give the disk away with engraved is the limitation that they run their hands over it and the writing smears/vanishes? That is, (without giving too much away) is the disk gimmicked or the writing? I suppose I am asking, without giving the secret away, if I do give the disk away what happens?

Thank you very much,

Danny

Hello Danny!
You can't freely give the amulet away with my method, BUT I have a solution for that, which I think (and know) is pure gold. I can't tell you about this in an open forum, but I will send you a PM.

I had the chance to give the Mental Writing products a careful look over at Mind Summit in Italy this last weekend. As a creator myself, the first thing I checked out was the attention to detail and it is, to say the least, very, very impressive; Andreas is a master craftsman. What impressed me equally was the solid, handling that Andreas has worked out to achieve each of the effects he offers with his products. I have no hesitation in giving Metal Writing my highest recommendation.

All the best,

Christopher

Thanks for your kind words Christopher, I really appreciate your opinion, and as you said, the focus on details is something I am very proud of as well.

The Jack, Jorge Garcia published this video on Youtube, where he perform Engraved. It is almost with tears in my eyes, I watch a pro perform and of course I am honored. He had created a wonderful story around the medallion, but even so. In the routine Jorge had found a new use for the pouch and also created a move and choreography which is brilliant. If you already have Engraved, check out the revelation of the amulet, think twice, and get amazed by his use of the several secrets in a new combination.

Well done!!

Thank you so much for your comments! I t has been a long journey for me to arrive to this presentation but finally and thanks to your product I could achieve it and I m so glad with it!
I always wanted to perform Koran s Medallion, the big problem with it in my country it s that in spanish you can t do the "wording" to make people feel the medallion is "engraved". Regarding the story about it, it started in 2013 when I was doing my second european tour. After a lecture in Copenhagen I was visiting "Tivoli" Park and found in a shop a beautifull box made of mirrors, I bought it because I felt I could achieve something. In My Third European Tour (2014) and after a performance at the "Magic Bar" in Stockholm I met Samuel Varg and he told me about your product. I met him again after my lecture in Gothenburg and he showed me your product but I didn t have time to contact you to buy it. Later that year I wrote the script that I felt may be useful for a routine with the box. This year I was doing my 4th european Tour and I met you at the Mindsummit EU and there I could see and have a close look at your product, and that medallion made me ring a bell in my head... Everything seemed to fit in place. After of few months of rehearsing and playing around with all the elements I ve decided to present the routine. The video is from that first presentation. I wanted to see the coreography, the moves and everything just because I knew it would need some corrections. Now, the routine is 2 minutes shorter, the handling is more relaxed, and I ve found something you can do if you want (i do it) and it is that you can throw the pouch from one hand to the other, it looks so clean, so relaxed and I think so convincing.
If anyone want to ask any question about the handling or the routine I did pls feel free to do so. This product it s great, the DVD tell s you lot s of details (they are so great I use some of them in the routine, by eg, how to handle the spectator to check the writting) so I m not only recommend it to you I just use it in my professional work.

I saw this product at the Torino Mind Festival, Andreas rocked with it, the people was crazy about the craftmanship of all his products!

I recently picked this up and was amazed by the extent of the contents as well as sheer potential of Engraved. It is versatile and can be adapted to fit so many different themes and different types of audiences.

I highly recommend this and am looking forward to using at an up and coming event. When practicing everything worked perfectly and with the engraved result surpassing expectations.

I used this for the first time last night and the reaction was phenomenal. I never anticipated how strongly this would play and everything worked a treat.

This, along with Blink, is one of my best purchases on the year.

Hi. Can you please tell me what the differences are between the original Eye of Odin metal writing effect and the Eye of Odin 2.0 or close up version? I am also wondering if Engraved refers to the same effect? Thank you. Eric.
