Killer Key (with DVD + US CURRENCY) by Jay Sankey (DVD + Trick - US) A lethal transposition!
Price: $18.75
Out of stock.

A key is placed in your left hand and a nickel is held at your right fingertips. Both hands are slowly closed into fists and held three feet apart, and yet a moment later when both hands are opened, the key and coin have impossibly changed places!

You can even have the key and coin change places inside a purse while the spectator hlds onto it! The coin can be borrowed (and initialed) and -- if you want -- the key can even be examined beforehand. No pulls, reels, magnets, thumb tips or shells. You don't even have to be able to palm a coin or perform a 'false transfer'! It's that wonderfully easy to do! Within minutes of opening the package you'll be able to perform the kind of VISUALLY SHOCKING close-up magic that usually takes YEARS of practice! Includes specially machined gimmicks, illustrated instructions, and a NEW instructional DVD featuring ADDED INFORMATION and NEW BONUS HANDLINGS!

What You Get

DVD plus U.S. currency gimmick.

GOOD QUALITY! GREAT TRICK! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2010
This is my favorite separate effect from Sankey (if that makes sense). This cleverly modified gimmick does about all the work, and it's choreographed to get you in and out clean. The gimmick is EXTREMELY durable and almost made entirely for you. The only thing you need to do is touch up a little part of it, but Jay clearly goes through the entire simple process for you.

The DVD offers some really clever and very clean handlings. SOme are including ungimmicked versions of it which look nice, but watch your angles. The gimmicked version is just about angle proof. One thing I should mention quickly, is I had a little problem. The gimmick Jay supplied me with was very scuffed and didn't look nice. Just saying you could get one from a bad batch. Most likely not though

Clever Report this review

It's a very clever gimmick that allows you to do this miraculous transformation. With the very basic, simple handling, you don't even need to learn any sleights; no palming or switching required. But of course, your props aren't immediately examinable under these conditions.

You just need to become comfortable handling the gimmick, so that you can keep track of its orientation. Once you get used to the basic handling, you can then move on and try to add some switches that make the routine seriously baffling.

This is a fun item to play around with, especially for a beginner. Definitely something worth keeping in your bag of tricks.

Great impromptu trick Report this review

Jay Sankey never disappoints. What I like most about this trick (as with most Sankey tricks) is that it uses something other than cards, i.e. everyday objects. Keep this one in your pocket or your key ring. With minimal sleights, its one that can be mastered in no time.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2007
THIS IS ONE OF MY GREATER EFFECTS IM ONLY 14 BUT I HAVE BEEN IN MAGIC FOR 2 YEARS. EVERY BODY GETS STUMPED BY THIS ONE AND THERE ARE EVEN GIMMICKED AND NON GIMMICKED HANDLING WHICH I LOVE. I RECOMEND THIS ALL THE WAY nobody expects the nickel to trun into a key they go nuts. bottom line you want something with almost no sleight of hand that hits big get it.

TOTALLY SELF-WORKING Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2006
If you are looking for a great effect that is easy to do where the gimmick already comes and everything is self-working then add to cart now. I always have the key and nickel in my pocket at all times because it gets huge reactions.

get it! Report this review

Ok, for those who want to perform a true miracle but don't know any sleight of hands, this for you!!!

Since you don't need slight of hand to perform it, you can focus on your presentation, which is the reason I think it is perfect for beginners. (Although slight of hands are not needed in this trick, you might also want to learn more handings from the DVD, so that you can make the whole performence more convincing.)

P.S. - The DVD comes with it is really good, teaches a lot of bonus handlings which is really really worth buying.

Get it! nothing more to say.

WOW!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 23rd, 2005
This is the best (and simplest) trick I've got from Penguin!

It's completely self - working! I don't know about the canadian currency but this doesn't break as easily and the plating is not coming off easily. I now wonder if it is a plating. The DVD teaches the excellent way to perform it without the gimmick, too. Hurry! Get this now!

key to her heart Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 12th, 2005
This is the BEST trick to meet women. You use a nickel (women love money) and a key. You tell her this is the key to your heart. Then they change places and she is amazed. Follow this with an Ambitious Card Routine and you are guaranteed to get her telephone number!
