Nice gimmick and DVD for key bends, especially for $37 after discount. Some may dislike the routine, but it's easily modified to suit your own style.

http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S12959

The good:

- CHEAP for what you get. I paid triple this price for my Coinvexed 2, and it's virtually the same.
- Gimmick will last forever. Could easily withstand a truck repeatedly running over it.
- BASE routine is solid, and includes a subtlety from Ben Earl's SKIN.
- Well explained DVD covering all the details.

The bad:

- "Someone you hate" isn't my style. I'm posting my actual script here, in case you want to use it.
- Need to find a hardware store or locksmith that will give you some cheap keys.

My scripted routine. Please feel free to use it, modify it, whatever. If you think it sucks, just ignore it:

"Have you encountered a special person in your life, that's changed you for the better?"
- Yes
"Like a mentor, big brother, parent?"
- My mom
"Awesome! I think there are two major keys in life: Love and inspiration. Represented here by these two keys. Pick one that would represent your _____ (mom in this case). Now put her initials on it. This is the change, the inspiration key showing how you're a better person because of your mom."
"I'll take that key back. The other is for love. Write the initials of a special guy/girl that you fell in love with at first sight. This key will support you."
"So we have change here (show key) and love here (show other key)"
"Put these in your hands and cover them up...."

(remainder of routine)

Bent key shows the changes you've made, coming a long way to make your life the way YOU want it to be.
If they key breaks, this shows your mom telling you to continue breaking the old habits, becoming a better you.

As always Akira, awesome review!

Quick question: Are you limited to just keys or other objects as well?

Won't do coins, definitely keys only (or similarly shaped objects).

Awsome thanks for finding this! I just got SpooKey by accident(Penguin sent me the wrong promo Item) and it has kind of opened me to the possibility of Key magic. I just picked up Craig Petty's Key Master and I think I'll add this too as soon as it becomes available.

Question: Can you get the same feeling of the key bending like you can with the coin bending in "Coinvexed"? I think you know what I am referring to here....

Where they feel the heat, or whatever? Sure why not.

NOTE: A lot of people are asking about this compared to PSI series bend, which requires a large car-type keys. I prefer this because the routine has a "reason" and emotional attachment. PSI series bend is still good, I just like this better. IMHO of course.

If anyone needs key blanks, I found some at lockpicks.com shipped for like 19 cents a performance. Search for:

Ilco (IN3) (BRASS)
YALE (Y2) (6-Pin) (BRASS)

The brass bends well WITHOUT breaking.

Akirafist, will this work with Nails? How about like the end part of a spoon or fork?
