If you really could bend metal with your mind, Psychokinetic Silverware is exactly how it would look. You�ll see cold, hard steel melt like butter�bending, twisting, breaking and moving seemingly on its own, even in a spectator�s hand! Banachek�s metal bending is so amazing and so realistic that he has often been accused of being and doing �the real thing.� In fact, after studying Banachek�s metal bending the McDonnell Laboratory for Psychic Research proudly announced to the scientific community that they had discovered someone with genuine psychic abilities! The National Inquirer and other media have also heralded Banachek�s psychokinetic talents. On this DVD, Gerry and Banachek finally reveal the real secrets to these amazing routines. Not only will you get to see how everything looks in performance, you�ll also learn the real inside work, the fine points and psychology of metal bending. These are secrets which have have been very tightly guarded...until now.

�Banachek�s work with metal bending is the state fo the art. This is the real work, the psychology and the little touches that make for miracles!� �Ben Harris (author: Gellerism Revealed)

�Banachek is BY FAR the best I�ve seen at bending metal! No one comes close! � Mac King

Much better then liquid metal Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2012
I have had liquid metal for quite some time now, and I finally purchased psychokinetic silverware. This video is top notch! Where Strebler teaches you his routine, Banachek really takes the time to teach you the subtleties & misdirection that you'll need to truly make cutlery bending work for you in the real world. Love this DVD!

Superb. Like all good effects, this will take some work, particularly in the presentation. The bends that Banacheck teaches are wonderful, but it is the subtleties of psychology, showmanship, and misdirection that put this in a class by itself.

I love this video, the same day I was doing one or two of the bends and within a week I was doing them all fairly convincingly. Please understand that I am NOT a magician, not even a novice or a hobbyist but I have *stunned* people with the stuff I learned.
If you are a novice like me, you may be stuck doing Banachek's routine until you work out the one or two spots that he missed (that's not a bad thing I assure you), email me if you need to and I will explain that last statement ONLY if you have the video. There are a couple of psychological subtleties that I spotted that could have been even more killer, but either Banachek didn't or, more likely, he's so damn good he doesn't need them.

Here's a hint, practice this as much as you can, I got blisters from practicing so much but.... McDonalds here I come.

Nothing short of fantastic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 24th, 2018
Fork bending is definitely one of the more impressive tricks you can do, because, you know, they're forks. They're strong. Even if normal people try to bend forks at home, they usually take their high-quality, thick silverware at home, and fial miserably.

There are a couple of different bends in this DVD. 3 of them, you can do with no prior preparation at all. The other two are also really impressive, but you may need to switch the forks.

Generally, I would say the easiest bend is the Pivot bend (where you rub it with your entire hand), and I usually follow it up with the bend where the spectator gently rubs the (already bent) fork in your hand, bending it even further.
I heard the tine bend should be easy, but everything here in Denmark is so high quality (curse you, Denmark!) coming across forks that are both overall thin and easy to bend AND does not have wide tines, is quite hard. So no sucess with the tine bend yet.
This does not make bending forks less impressive, though.

At the beginning, you need thin forks. Not the high quality one's in your parent's drawer, but cheap and thin ones. Personally, I got forks from the cafeteria at my dad's work, which they were going to throw out either way.
If you're using thin forks, it is very important that when you get the spectator to check it, do NOT say "try and bend it". I once said this to a six year old, he bend it (slightly) with his hands. Just say "check and see that it is a real fork. Not rubber or anything" works best, and I have never failed with this. Just be sure not to over-prove, it seems weak and suspicious.

I hear people complain about Gerry in the DVD, I even heard one go as far as to say he learned NOTHING because of Gerry, but really, I don't see it.
I mean, yes, sometimes he interrupts to say something that doesn't even matter, but personally, I didn't find it distracting at all. It wasn't very often, and they usually carried on rather quickly.

All in all, this is a great DVD for anyone interested in fork bending.

Perfect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2013
This is easily one of the greatest instructional DVDs I have ever seen.

Flat out, this will teach you all you need to know to look like you can bend metal with your mind. People keep saying it requires a lot of practice, and to get it PERFECT you do, but you can start immediately and the instructions are really clear and really helpful. Even after you know how it works Banachek goes into subtleties that truly convince the audience you have powers.

When used properly, this effect is a powerhouse in terms of reactions and believability. People will be shocked, and they will remember it for a long time.

This, in many ways, is a perfect illusion. It is TRULY impromptu, no gimmicks, easy to learn, and is a massively powerful effect. I really can't say how much I love this effect.

BUY IT NOW.

Amazing Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2008
First of all, people now believe that I have abilities.

Teaching:
It is taught very well, nothing annoying etc(with music or camera angles). It is taught almost like your sitting down with Banachek and Gerry and learning everything two on one. Banachek also goes into detail about how he had a group of scientists believing in him for four years...

Practice:
The bends and patter take a lot of practice, not as much practice as the zombie ball or muscle reading though.

I do this effect for not only parler, but on stage and let me tell you, do you want to blow people away? Give them a souvineer they'll never forget? Do you want to take your mentalism to the next level?....
by this DVD!

Don't waste your money. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2014
I bought this dvd and it's a wonderful trick, but the reason i gave it 1 star is because if you watch this dvd you won't learn anything. Banachek has talent and this is a wonderful effect, but you won't how to do it well because That Gerry wouldn't shut up. Banachek would talk and try to teach you how to do this, but Gerry would interrupt and Banachek wouldn't continue what he was saying. I've had this dvd for years and i didn't learn a damn thing. Please don't waste your money. You'll buy this and won't be able to perform it because you won't know how. I can't believe they actually sell this piece of garbage

something missing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2005
Well, I liked some of the things in the video, but most of the bends don't come off very strong to the people I have performed for. If you are going to get a metal bending routine you may want to check out Liquid Metal.

The Ideas in this DVD are helpful, but still seem to lack the ability to be impossible, and that is what you want as a magician - to perform the impossible.
