Imagine the power of this awesome effect: You show a coin and place it on your hand (or even a spectator's hand for added power). With complete confidence you wave your hand (fingers open) over the coin...

The coin vanishes right before the spectator's eyes in one of the most visual moments in all of magic. The best part is, your hands end up completely clean!

No sleights, no odd moves. This is truly one of the best investments in all of street magic.

Besides the vanish, you can even make the coin turn into another coin or shrink it into a miniature-size coin. Many additional effects are possible with bills, matchbooks, and playing cards.

Why we Love it

  • It looks like real magic.
  • It's a professional effect that's easy to perform
  • We love blowing away other magicians when we perform the Raven in short sleeves!
  • It's a great investment because many other effects become possible when you own the Raven.

This is The Original Raven.

This is a brilliant tool... not a trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2020
(This review is for The Raven)
Please understand that my perspective is that of a person who is returning to magic after having taken a break to pursue my education. I am not intimately aware of the current culture in the magic community, but here's my take:

The Raven gimmick has been around for a long time. Do not watch the trailers or stuff you see online as the possibilities of the gimmick. In my humble opinion, I believe using the device as a "vanish and re-appearance" tool is not the strength of this device, and ultimately, using it as such is not strong.

Use this as a tool to supplement your magic. Use it as a holdout. Use it as an "invisible third hand." Don't use it as a pinnacle of your magic. Ultimately, a beautiful retention vanish is just as strong as a vanish with The Raven.

This little gem amazes every time! I am NOT a master of legerdemain, but after about an hour of practice I can now make coins and other objects disappear out of the hands of my spectator/victims! I love it; they love it! Win/win!

The Raven Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2019
(This review is for The Raven)
This is actually the second one I purchased. The first one is permanently in my jacket. This one I am going to use when I am in short sleeves. Since I live in South Florida I perform in short sleeves a lot. Buying a second one should just about sum it up on how good this is. I love it and it is a killer close up.

Fantastic Instruction for a Classic Tool Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 21st, 2019
The Raven is an awesome device. Like many, I've been aware of it since that first David Blaine special where he made the coin vanish from the kid's hand, and have had one for many years. It's great to see it back in action with this new instruction.

The new video from Nick Locapo truly illustrates the versatility and real-world usefulness of this gimmick. Not only does he cover 3 ways to hook up the device, he teaches effects with coins, paper money, paperclips, cards, salt shakers, bottle caps, shot glasses, and more.

A few of the effects are best suited for video, but Nick covers a lot of great effects and tips for performing in the real world as well, accompanied by live performance videos.

Never has "limited only by your imagination" felt more true.

If you've never owned a Raven, you'll want this package. If you've had a Raven sitting in your drawer for years, get the video. It'll make you want to dust it off and start blowing minds.

Brilliant Utility Device Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2020
(This review is for The Raven)
I have possessed devices similar to this in the past but never anything quite like The Raven. While they give you many ideas for routines, this device allows you to perform feats only limited by your imagination. I take this wherever I go as it can be set up and performed at a moment's notice.

Nick is a fantastic teacher - engaging, knowledgeable, creative, skillful, and very personable.

And The Raven is an invaluable utility.

First Penguin review I've written - this purchase is that good.

Weaker than I remember. Report this review

I have always loved this gimmick so I purchased it again. To me it felt weaker than I remembered. Have to be real close for quarter sized objects.

Great but loud Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2020
(This review is for The Raven)
The raven is amazing, easy to use, simple set up, amazing tricks.
The only down side is, beginners may have issues with noise.
It’s loud. Best reserved for video or a very loud environment.
Experienced magicians will know how to combat the sound and perform it anywhere.

great product!
