Merchant of Magic is proud to present the latest brain child of Jimmy Strange. Strongman is a new method for visually bending metal that is easy to do and super practical.
Metal bending is always best when it happens visually and slowly, it is undeniable. Still to this day, metal bending is one of the strongest most believable pieces of magic you can perform. There is something mesmerizing about watching cold hard steel bend and warp. It cannot be explained as sleight of hand or misdirection, it is more likely to be described as mind over matter or a supernatural phenomenon.. that's what makes it so powerful.
Strongman by Jimmy Strange is a completely new concept in metal bending, a new type of gimmick that can be felt as solid yet can bend upon your command. No more needing to carry around extra props for impractical methods. Strongman can be used over and over again as it resets instantly and requires no set up, it is ready right out of the box.
With Strongman you will be able to show your spectators a solid nut and bolt, they can feel it and check it, it is solid, yet at any moment you can make the bolt bend as if it were made of rubber. You can even hold it and have your spectators rub the bolt and cause it to bend, they actually feel it melt with no effort whatsoever. It can then straighten back to its original state leaving your spectators dumbfounded and wondering if all they saw was actually real. Instantly the bolt is solid again, the spectators can feel this. All of this is done with NO SETUP AND NO SWITCHES.
You can use Strongman on its own but it is the perfect accompaniment to any metal bending routine.
Easy to perform
No temperature issues

Metal bending has a brand new string to its bow, here are what professionals all over the world are saying about Strongman:
"It is extremely rare that a new principle is created for magic, Jimmy has not only done this, but used it for an amazing effect. I will be carrying Strongman with me everywhere!"
- Marc Lavelle
"Offbeat, genius, and quality magic, created by a quality magician. Strongman is highly recommended"
- Kieron (Johnson) Lefever
"Since it's first prototype development, I've been performing Strongman at all my close-up gigs. I can't recommend this enough. That moment when the spectator bends the bolt with the tip of their finger is priceless.."
- Dominic Reyes
"Strongman is something truly magical, workable and mind blowing. Honestly felt childhood wonderment all over again, that doesn't happen often."
- Steve Rowe
"Let's look at it this way. You hand a nut and bolt out for examination. You then take it back and WITHOUT switching it you bend it.. You can then fix it and hand it back out again with NO switches! Read that again, no switches! It just doesn't get any better than this"
- Alan Rorrison
"SEALED looks like real magic. If you think the visual looks incredible, wait until you see the gimmick. Menny's a genius"
- DYNAMOPerform insanely-visual miniature card-in-window type of effects with various small and verifiable objects (signed cards, bills, coins, business cards etc.)
With the cellophane wrap pulled halfway out of the cigarette/card box, perform a visually stunning matter-through-matter miracle by causing the signed object to VISIBLY PENETRATE the hanging cellophane:
Magically toss a signed card, bill or coin, through any of the cellophane panels!
With the signed folded card resting on top of the out-jogged cellophane, cause it to VISIBLY FALL THROUGH the top panel!
Have the card or bill on a spectator's open palm and without touching it, SNATCH IT away with the hanging cellophane - the signed folded card will VISIBLY JUMP into the cellophane from the spectator's own hand!
You can shake the object about, and let the spectator verify it is indeed his/her signature on the object inside! You can hand out both the cellophane and object as a souvenir!

A real magic trick demonstrated in various TV programs, Dinner and Floor shows has lifted the bar here by RYOTA!
An unprecedented penetration effect becomes possible.
"Silk in Balloon" is classic magic that has reached the level of the Real Magic at last.
The magician begins to blow up one clear balloon.
Nothing is inside.
Tie up the neck of swelled balloon.
Take out a handkerchief from a pocket and push it to the balloon.
Its tip penetrates and goes into a balloon at first.
Continue to push in and finally the whole handkerchief goes into the balloon.
Surely there is no hole on the balloon!
You can show all angels where the handkerchief penetrates and can give it to spectators to examine.
Specially designed Wonder SiB gimmick makes this effect possible.
The balloon is examinable after the performance.
You can perform this from a close up situation to stage.
Wonder SiB gimmick is durable so you can use it for a long time.
All of the necessary items are included so you can practice immediately.
Very practical magic trick.
Set of Gimmick
Organic magic at its best!
Every Magician knows the most powerful magic happens in the hands of their spectators.
Imagine with just the powers of your mind bending a normal looking paperclip in your spectators hand! CLIP is an Illusion you can (and will) take with you everywhere you go. CLIP is as close to real magic as you can get and there is no "gimmick" to find.... Because the CLIP IS the gimmick!
A real Illusion that is extremely compact and well made.
- No Skill necessary
- Well Made
- No "gimmick" to find
- Take with you everywhere
- No threads, etc.
- 2 CLIPS included with Online Video Instructions
"It's a very powerful moment to the layman's eyes when the paperclip bends and fixes itself in the glass cup of water. It's definitely a reputation maker." - Shin Lim
There are fewer joyful moments from a spectator when they open their hand and witness a hard, metal coin warped and bent right in their hand. Even better, the astonishment they have when they see you easily bending a coin at the fingertips, like soft butter.
Bending a coin to pull off a great coin-bending magic trick has historically been expensive, or unwieldy. Using pliers or a door jamb to bend a coin is highly inconvenient and usually scars the coin. Benz gets the job done long before the trick ever starts, so there is no heat, no pressure and nothing but pure magic.
Benz is a precision, laser-cut, secret coin bending device that you will carry with you everywhere, so that you're always ready to bend a coin anytime. Benz is a refreshing alternative to piers or doors for any coin you need bent, now.
Easy to use and carry
Bends most coins under 3mm thick
Also bends cutlery, and other small thin metal objects
Constructed & laser cut from industrial grade tungsten. It doesn't get any stronger.
Designed like a car key to easily blend in with everyday items
Durable and tough, for long life and rugged use.
Cerberus has everything the modern Mentalist needs packed into a small everyday leather wallet, only a little bigger than a deck of cards. If you're still looking for an everyday wallet that incorporates a great peek & load system, holds your business cards and will actually fit in your front pocket easily, then you've finally found it! Never get caught unawares again. With Cerberus at your side - just 'Unleash the Hound'!
Named after the mythical three-headed guardian of the underworld, the Cerberus Wallet is a descendant of a Jaks Wallet, but adapted and upgraded so it can be used like an everyday store-bought wallet. The best part? The Cerberus Wallet is a monster by name, but not by nature. It actually fits in your front trouser pocket!
What features does the Cerberus Wallet have?
Bills and notes can be carried like a normal wallet (All US, UK & Euro paper money fit)
5 credit card pockets & 2 utility pockets
Driver's License window
Internal & External Peek System
8 Card Index System (Business card sized)
Card to Wallet: Load & Steal System (Business card or folded playing card)
Use as platform for secret writing
What does the wallet look like?
Built from the ground up in high quality black leather, this feature-packed tri-fold wallet is a real 'all-in-one' utility item, just without the usual size.
How do I learn what to do with the Cerberus Wallet?
On the accompanying DVD, Daniel Meadows shows that Cerberus' bite more than matches its bark as he walks you through all the features of the wallet, runs through some example routines, and suggests further reading for some great Cerberus-compatible effects!
This is an incredible effect and routine with a puzzle cube by two Atsukawa Award Magicians, Akira Fujii and Hideki Tani. It contains a "sucker trick" and unexpected surprise ending in one routine. This trick is perfect for comedy routines.
A magician displays all six sides of a mixed puzzle cube. He states that he has the ability to solve it instantly. As he is saying this, the puzzle cube is immediately solved right in front of the spectators! The spectators think the trick is over at this point, but there is more to come.
The magician mixes up the puzzle cube again and says that he can solve it in 10 seconds. While the magician has a spectator count to 10, the magician tries to solve the cube. As the countdown ends it seems the cube hasn't been yet... but the magician claims that he made it! The magician points to another puzzle cube on the table. The color combinations of all six sides of both cubes are completely the same! However, it is still not the end of the routine.
The magician says that "I guess I should solve both cubes completely". He holds the puzzle cube and waves it sideways... Instantly the cube is solved! The cube can be handed out to spectators for examination.
The routine starts with a laugh, and then the spectator realizes the laugh is part of the next surprise. It finishes with a beautiful climax. The handling is outstanding and the techniques explained in the DVD are brilliant! The false shuffle by Akira Fujii is so effective it can be used for other puzzle cube routines.
The product includes both a gimmicked and ungimmicked puzzle cube (both 2.5" x 2.5" x 2.5"), as well as a DVD containing the full routine presented live and step-by-step instruction.
*The DVD may not play in all DVD players but will play in computers.

There are many versions of this funny trick, all of them with different endings, but this one is the classic, created many years ago.
A card is chosen and remembered by the spectator, then the magician shows a tray holding 3 big colored balloons and explains that the selected card will appear inside one of the balloons, the one selected by the spectator.
Just before he selects the color, one of the balloons becomes detached from the tray and hisses wildly into the air.
The magician continues and explains that the card will appear into one of the two remaining balloons. But before the spectator names his color, another balloon begins to deflate slowly, until it goes limp!
Finally, the last balloon explodes and the selected card in jumbo size appears in it's place.
'Comedy Jumbo Card In Balloon' is a top-class number for kids and adults shows.
This routine is a succession of funny tricks, with which you'll have the audience under your control all the time.
12 colored balloons
2 gimmicked jumbo playing cards
