Very tempted to pull the trigger on this one, probably will next week.

I had one idea, for people who want to get the ungimmicked blocks to give away as a souvenir, perhaps get them laser engraved on one side (the underside?) and make it the equivalent of a business card. Might as well make it work for you.

Mine just shipped too. I got an email that this is back in stock although the web site still says preorder shipping in early June. But now there are ungimmicked blocks of wood for sale as giveaways.

Hey everyone,

On Hanson Chien’s website you can now purchase the regular ungimmicked blocks of holy wood.
This can be used as a give away if you like.

I’m guessing the side cut of the wood will match the Holy Wood.

One for $20
Three for $50
Five for $80

Wow... That is expensive for a block of wood. I am in the wrong side of the magic business.

Haha, true!

Too bad you can’t let your spectator know you are giving them a $20 block of wood. They’d appreciate it a lot more. 😃

I guess there are occasions that pros might like to give it away. But for friends, family, coworkers, who is going to want a block of wood? So for me personally, I can’t think of anyone that I might perform this for that wouldn’t hand it back to me with a “thanks, but you can keep it, I don’t need a piece of wood.” 🙁

Although now that I think about it, I’m always looking for ways to prompt guests to ask to see some magic without them realizing that’s what they are doing. So maybe I could have a little display with the block of wood next to a deck of cards with a little sign that says “What do these have in common?” or something like that which is intended to get them to ask me about it. I think there’s potential in that if I give it more thought.

Hey, videoman, I concur. Who really wants/needs a block of wood?

Holywood can already be examined. They will not find the secret. I don’t think there is a need to over prove it by handing out a block of wood to keep. I also don’t think it makes a very good give away item since it’s just a block of wood. It’s not an impossible object.

The trick itself is great. I’m just curious if the ungimmicked wood will have the same side cut as the gimmicked holy Wood.

For $20 it had better have matching sides!
Not sure if that would be preferred or not but it should be priced waaayyy cheaper if not.

Mine's arriving to the UK on Monday via UPS. Woo Hoo! Did anyone have access to the tutorial earlier, i.e. requested the link after purchasing or do we all have to wait for the package to arrive before being able to watch the instructions? Thanks.

From Taiwan my express package took about 8-9 days to Alaska. The standard shipping from there took almost 3 weeks.

Received mine after just 4 days in germany... the quality of the gimmick is 100/100. just perfect. the "resistance" in the hands of a spectator is very good. I guess you can let it slip in their hands out of the cardbox and you don't have to run...
also, I think that the necessary "structure" on the surface on a block of wood is less suspicious than on some of the metal objects we all know. I really like it.
