This product does exactly what it promises and it is amazing. The only two downsides (and they are
really small downsides). 1. I have had a female spectator not be able to bend the nail but this is
not typical and only a possible problem if you want to preform an illusion where the spectator bends
the nail. 2. The product comes with 3 different size nails. Personally I don't need the small
nails, which means that if I use all the large nails currently my only option is buy the product and
get more small nails that I don't need with the set. Hopefully in the future they will sell the
different size nails separately because this is a great product that I plan on putting in my act for

I do a lot of metal bending and this is a great product. The nail you wish to bend can be hammered
into a piece of wood. The small nails can be done with one hand, the others, two will be needed.
That is unless you are very strong.The spectator will not be able to straighten. The small one
however which resembles a wood finishing nail I was able to straighten, but it would be hard for
most. One can switch out, but not needed. Cannot see anything on these nails. I like it. Eventually
you will have to purchase refills. The video footage is great. There is a segment the third of three
where a magician uses a straw and has a cute effect. The bend that he did with the largest nail was
out of frame. That was my only complaint. The other two links are fair and square. The refills are
not available. They are deciding whether to sell a set together or separate. Meanwhile the set you
will receive has an ample supply.

First of all - trailer is misleading. You can do a routine when a spectator can't bend a nail and
then can, but not like in a trailer - you need a switch.
Second - A lot of bad facts in video.
For example you can bend a nail back immediately. And so your spectator. Don't perform it on a
normal guys, choose girls or old people. It's like a bending fork type. You can show it to guys but
they will not be impressed as girls. Yes, because they will bend your nail back as they always do
with the forks =)) And forks are cheaper also.
And oh, the refills.. What are talking about guys
in the reviews??? Just bend your nail back and use it again!
Thats all. Use pliers to keep the
nail perfect straight.

This is a great product,but some people have told me that the nails do not look as convincing as
real nails.This is due to the fact that the nails are shiny,as most folks are used to seeing nails
with a bit of age on them.I will try to give them some color,but it would be cool if it where
offered with a patina.
You Do need very strong hands for this. RASMUS does a great job with his product and rightfully so.
No DVD. I like one routine with the little nails . One is Marked put into a wine glass and it bends.
Great Trick. Trouble is I cant do it. The little nails must be done one handed for this to work. It
is good just not for me . Wish I could do it.
I can bend them. My girlfriend cannot.
I am still thinking on how I will bring these into
the show. The straw idea in the instructions rock! I'll be thinking on this for a bit.
Nails look great! Refills on the big ones are not cheap.
Gotta give it a five because
there is nothing extra to hold or ditch.
Just gotta get my brain working on how to use
Steel hits a solid home run. The props are very good. The 35 and 80 mm nails can be bent easily with
one hand. Like anything it just requires practice to find that sweet spot. Be aware that initially
you will end up with a sore thumb but it is definitely worth the effort. It is more about technique
than hand or finger strength.
The video instruction is more than adequate given English is not
Rasmus native language. As he says it is much easier for him to demonstrate an effect in his native
It does give you a foundation for coming up with your own ideas and routines.
Performing this has so far proven very successful and a few nails will be with me constantly
from now on.
Don't limit yourself to using just the one size nail. It is a killer effect.
Being able to work with all 3 sizes opens up so many possibilities to turn the "okay" into the
I am generally not a fan of refills, usually when you need them you can't get
them anymore. In this case I stocked up with enough of each size to last years while they are
Well worth it.
I agree with the other reviews in that this is an incredible product, but I dislike the idea of
repurchasing it over and over again to acquire refills of the gimmicks. How long til we can fix
I’ve never done metal bending, it always looked like something I’d never get into – but with the
ease of steel – this will make anyone an instant MASTER! Great doorway to enter the world of
strength acts or mentalism.
You will need a strong grip, strong fingers OR very good
leverage to do this trick - of course, you could always have your spectator do the bend instead.
This is magnificent. Up to know, I don't know of anyone that can bend a nail, and less w/their
"mind." This effect is SUPERB and the routines suggested are KILLER. Don't buy this effect, so that
I'm the only one who has it and does it ;-)
