At the recent 4F convention the most talked about product (besides my Supersized KFC Coins) was Kelvin Chow’s Quiver coin purse. It is brilliantly constructed and can be used to switch any item that can fit inside it. To get one before I sell-out go: HERE
Kelvin was frying people in the hotel lobby with the many things it can do. It is basically a one-hand change bag device that is built into an innocent looking coin purse. It can be used to switch, produce or vanish anything that will fit inside. Many people told me that it would be great for the KFC coins… and they are right.
The beauty of this is that the purse is basically examinable and can be opened by the spectator. But the spectator can only open the main compartment while you are the only one that can open the secret compartment. And both compartments look identical! Watch the trailer to see what I am trying to explain. I had a bunch shipped to me from Hong Kong by Express Mail, just so I can offer it to you.

I was also able to digitize the fourth and final Michael Skinner Professional Close-Up Magic video. This volume contains only card magic and all the routines are excellent. These are longer, formal routines so I was only able to include a few of them on the trailer. My favorite routines are: Telltale Aces, The Card Tunnel, Devilish Miracle and Three Different Ways. As usual he teaches some clever sleights and maneuvers that are not commonly known.
The introductory sale price will end on Tuesday, so get it now, get it: HERE
One other item I decided to carry is the much talked about Everlast swami gimmick. It is a silver ring that has a small nib on it that can be used to secretly write with on, many different types of paper. The writing looks like pencil but is not erasable and the nib does not use any kind of led or ink. The special metal does all the writing.
It is suggested to be worn as a thumb ring so it remains in full view the whole time. I am not the type that wears rings, especially on my thumb. But I thought it might be neat to use as a writing device in my pocket like “pencil writing” or “pocket writing.” I remember Joe Barnett often using a small pencil in his pocket to secretly write thought-of numbers on a small pad of paper. He often got great reactions from lay people with very little presentational effort. Anyway — tried it but I think using a pencil is better for me.
This is an interesting device and if you can visualize yourself using it you should get it. The rings come in size 10 and 12 which are large since they will be worn on your thumb. Both sizes are actually too big for me but there are ways to make the rings smaller.

For all my friends in the Rhode Island and Massachusetts area…. I am coming your way next weekend as part of the Penguin Magic Expos. On Saturday May 20, we will be at the Hilton Garden Inn in Warwick/Providence, Rhode Island and on Sunday May 21, we will be at the Double Tree Cambridge in Cambridge/Boston, Massachusetts.
The events run from 10am-4pm and will feature: Gregory Wilson, Brent Braun, Brandon Gerald, Magick Balay, Chris Beason and myself. Throughout the day there will be short mini lectures and a full one-hour lecture at the end. You can buy tickets at the door, but I recommend buying them online in advance at a heavy discount.
Until next time,
P.S: Because many of you asked I made many of the back issues of this newsletter available online. The archive can be found: HERE
