Pretty Lady, The magic wand serves many functions. A tool for misdirection, and as a symbol (time honored with historical and spiritual significance) It has the power you believe it has. Treat it with respect rather than casually as nothing more than a prop; and the audience will suspend disbelief, and see the power too.

I use a one-of-a-kind, birch Alivan wand for my childrens' show. That's it in my avatar.

For those unfamiliar with Alivan Wandmakers:

The wand is the magicians symbol of power and must have some base metal on it somewhere to correctly attract and focus the magic power. All wood wands are strictly for show.

I have been doing walk around magic at Applebee's Restaurant for the last six months and I use a small (8 to 9 inch) wand on a regular basis. I use it for some coin routines but most of all in spone ball routines. I think bringing a wand out not only gives you a chance to ditch objects, but I think a nice looking wand adds a touch of class to any routine.

I do an entire "School of Wizardry" show, for which I use a baton-style wand made of ebony wood and ornamented with a single sterling silver band.

My wandmaker of choice is Fortress Wand Works, which makes the trophy wands for the annual Chicago Close-Up Magic Competition at Navy Pier. Beautiful quality, excellent service, and custom orders, too: http://www.FortressWands.com

Years ago I bought an "Ammar" wand from the Camirand Academy. It's made from fine wood and has solid silver tips. Absolutely perfect in every respect. Unfortunately, I don't think they make them the same way any more.

I also have an all wooden wand which I got from Jeff Busby many many years ago. It's a bit longer than most wands, and for some reason moves like the wand spin are just easier with it than any other wand I've tried.

Anyway...just my 2 cents.

I have a little beauty, a sand wand made a long while ago by .. I forget who .. but it is about 7 inches in length, ebony with silver. One twist and the fine sand is released onto the back of the card. Love to think of another use other than sand and card, any ideas please? Thank you.

I use one I bought from "Magicwarehouse", it's a mini one with silver tip and it's very very nice and cheap.
Just my 2 cents.

Do you allow those in the audience to use your wand?

I do, Bob, but not just anybody. I only choose one or two participants who will treat it with the proper reverence. And when they accomplish something amazing as a result, it feels like real magic.

Best,
Neil

P.S. I cannot praise highly enough the fine work of Brian Humphrey at Fortress Wand Works: http://www.FortressWands.com (They make great holiday gifts -- for yourself!)

Neil,

I'm glad to see someone else who thinks that a wand deserves proper reverence.

(I hope Santa does remember a sack full of wands!)

The wand is an excellent tool for a classy magic show: looks and feels like magic.

I use a very exclusive wand made by Tim Star, a very "good" looking wood wand: the wand has a magnet inbuilt in one of the ends.

I use several wands in kids shows... the break-away wand, topsy popsy, duster wand, and I even use a rubber chicken as a wand. They always bring laughter to the kids.

The audience EXPECTS you to have a magic wand. You're a magician! They're also invaluable for ditching palmed objects you want to get rid of - simply pick up your wand while simultaneously dropping the object into a well or box sitting on the table.
