From all over the world, coin tricks come to Cashablanca
fleeing the Gaffed Coin Gestapo and the tyranny of the EZ to Master
race. Here, they struggle to become pure sleight-of-hand Magic; earning
their passage to audiences in the free world.
Hidden away from the distractions of a phony studio audience,
Curtis Kam performs and explains the tricks that have earned their letters
audience is teased into watching you pull invisible coins from the air,
and spread them into a fan. Just when they're convinced that your hands
are empty and you're pulling their legs, BAM--three silver dollars pop
when they're sure it'll never happen, the money appears, like the girl
you left behind. This could be the beginning of a beautiful coin trick.
Ilsa with the perfect working man's coins across--three ordinary coins,
no risky moves. Do it standing, sleeveless, table-less, topless, for
brooding loners or the whole German army. Features the latest in American
edge grip technology, (but the angles are 100% practical) the revolutionary
"In Closing" steal, and a new breed of retention pass that
fools the mind, not the eye.
Coins Across, sweet and simple. Americans love simple things with money.
Paris Hilton, for example. We'll always have Paris.
Greatest ($3) Show on Earth
coins take the stage like clowns from a tiny car. The youngest tumbles
and rolls; his brothers do a fingertip trapeze act. Put away in your
pockets, they jump back to the stage then fly like human cannonballs,
appearing under, on top of, and inside a coin purse. A full routine
with all the action of a three-ring circus, daring new techniques, and
a built-in storyline that can be either circus or Cirque, as you wish.
It Again, Kam (Another Hard Way) / Excellent Birds
coins ooze out of your empty hands, into a nifty display position, no
less. From there, you perform the classic "Flying Eagles"
with an upgrade to the 21st century. A new take on a classic, with killer
convincers and a Harbottle finish.
no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems
of three little coins don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy
world. But seven coins, now that gets my attention.
advanced, enhanced handling of Triple Alliance (from Palms of Steel
3: Silverado) is the only Copper/Silver/Brass where the audience hears
the first transpo, sees the second, feels the third, and then experiences
the rare and elusive triple transposition. Brought to you through virtuoso
routining and the simplest of gaffs, it's a visual, audible, tactile
feast for the senses that stops short of total sensory immersion only
because the coins all taste about the same.
International Solid ThreeFly (Reed McClintock)
different coins fly from the fingertips of one hand to the other. That
simply. No moves, no feints, no pauses, no dumb gags, no trips to the
pockets, all visible, and when the last coin goes, you're clean. Reed
figures that the only reason to use a gaff is if it produces an illusion
this good. Why pay more for gaffed coins that do less?
you don't get this video, you'll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not
tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life. Here's looking at
What The Pros Say:
just finished watching "Palms of Steel 4", I must say Curtis
Kam has outdone himself. Coin magic for everyone...from the beginner

(I won't say what it is as I don't want to spoil the surprise) I highly
recommend this (as well as anything put out by the Magic Bakery) for
