Great padlock. Quality and amazing effect
I love this lock and have performed it in every banquet show I’ve performed since I received it. This is a well made, heavy padlock that looks and feels great. The keys come with color collars for whatever presentation you like, however the colors can come off if you want to. With this lock the performer must open the lock, instead of the spectator. However the lock opens with a loud click and it’s large enough that everyone in an average sized audience can hear and see the lock opening.

This is one versatile effect – kids’ shows, science shows, stage, emcee, seance – you name it. I always have it on hand – either scheduled in the act, or ready in case I need one more routine. Packs small, plays big, and always entertains. What more can you ask of a $50 prop?

My Favorite Geneva Prediction Watch
I’ve had opportunity to use four different versions of this watch – three directly from Collector’s Workshop, and this one from Meir Yedid. The See-Thru version uses a slightly different mechanism and unlike the original cannot be opened by the spectator. For me this is not an issue and in fact I believe the handling is simpler. One plus of the this version is the watch actually works and it looks particularly cool with the workings exposed and the movement freely seen.
Having it back again is good and It is part of my walk around act now.

Still the King!
George Robinson continues to surprise me. When I received my first $link(1554,original CW version of Creation) back in 2002 I thought it was an amazing effect and a collector’s dream: very clever mechanism, small, no reset, and absolutely stunning impact on the audience. This new version is all of that and more. George has gone to the trouble to plate the cage in 24K gold so now none of the solder marks can be seen and the cage now really looks stunning.
I have found over the last couple of years that I have $link(nd=gallery&keywords=again&flag=Rebuying+Madness!,re-bought a number of effects) and in many cases have been happier with the newer version. When it comes to Collector’s Workshop, every single piece that George has rebuilt has been better than the original. This jewel of the whole CW line is more incredible than ever. I know George has limited supplies so I suggest you stampede over to his site to get this beautiful Creation. If you ever want to see the look of utter disbelief on a spectator this is certainly one way to achieve it.
Most highly recommended – $link(http://www.vikingmagiccompany.com/?nd=full&key=87&myaf=af_mm target=_blank,get it now!)

This is really amazing Viking quality. The shimmering red with gold flakes rayon finish is very beautiful, and the thin shell is made 100% from wood, I can’t imagine how hard that is to make.
