Sold out for awhile on Jeff's site. Anyone know if more are to be made?
I also noticed that the color has changed from silver to Gold/Brass on the site. Did these come in both colors?

He told me more were being made but that was over a month ago and it doesn’t appear they are in stock yet.

Hey guys! I just spoke to Jeff and he is working hard on the next batch of gimmicks, and he told me they'll be ready in July! There were some snags along the way, but the keys are manufactured and are going through their final production and assembly steps. I've seen the new brass key and it looks great, it ages like a real key! He's also including a new keychain magnet and matching ungimmicked key for additional routines. Can’t wait to get mine!

Not sure that's so great in the long run, as the air will mainly be hitting one section, not the other. Hope a color discrepancy doesn't occur after time...

I would probably carry around with the other side exposed to keep the same worn looks

For like the first week I would probably just hold it in my hands for prolonged periods of time and like you said, get the unexposed part into the exposed position periodically whilst doing that first week of breaking in, just to age it evenly.

That’s kind of the problem with brass keys. To make everything match, you have to age them. LoL.

Doesn't seem like Jeff has anything in stock on his website and hasn't for quite a long time. Anyone know if he uses a dealer?

Any plans to let UK dealers sell this as the shipping is $36 to the UK which is a bit steep considering the cost of the actual product ?

This looks so awesome. I am really glad he put the tutorial right on the website. I was hesitant to buy this, because I don't want to spend $99 on something, put it on my keychain, and have it fall off to be lost forever. After seeing the demo, I see that it will never fall off my keychain. This is unbelievable. My order is in.

Maybe it’s because I only watched this tutorial 2 days ago ( so it could already be the update one ) but even so I cannot see how this could ever fall off your key chain ? The link / penetration is not done through the outer edge of the key buy through the inner self contained sections Gaz 🙂

I think I prefer the silver key. I hope he offers it again.

Got bored and ordered the whole set of tricks. Should have gotten at magifest when they were 3 for $100. Have to say that while the key initially didn’t do much for me, I’m starting to like it. Really impressed that a mechanism like that can be built into a key. Quite amazing actually. Works like a charm and reset takes about 3 seconds.

I received this around a week ago. I have been performing it in person and over iphone and zoom. I really like it. It is extremely powerful over the internet because I can reset it right in front of them (off camera) and repeat. The biggest problem with this live is that it all happens so fast that they ALWAYS want to see it again. I think it is key that you have a followup routine. I really like Jay Sankey's key and string routine, and I keep a couple woven strings on my keychain. I also have a skeleton key with an invisible thread tied to it with magician's wax on the other end. It allows me to do the haunted key routine in their hands. I have them slowly tilt their hand in one direction, but the key doesn't roll down their hand, it rolls up instead.

One of the questions above was about the possibility of it falling off your keychain. No chance of that. It is an intricate mechanism, so I wonder how it would do after years of being banged around on the keychain. I have it on my keychain for now, but I will probably only leave it on for a few weeks and then take it off.

Ordering today. I like examinable and mechanical stuff. One must be careful of the beginning of the trick. That's a sleight of hand maneuver, a minor one, but one that I caught on the video. Nevertheless it's a good trick that's why I just dropped $100.
