Before you buy this you should know that you'll need to go on a scavenger hunt. You'll need to find some keys that meet the specifications. I doubt it'll be difficult, but just be aware that not all of the "parts" are included and some assembly is required.

One thing I particularly like about this routine is that it's seemingly impromptu and can be carried in your pocket without taking up much extra space.

The first phase of the routine is a simple three-way-out -- a method that's proven effective in many of my own performances as well as those of other magicians. A friend of mine fooled a room full of psychologists with a similar effect. Also, since this phase is basically self-working, you can establish a rapport with the audience without worrying about being caught.

In phase two a signed key (yours) is bent while being held by both you and your helper. There's a bit of sneaky work to be done here, but it happens quickly and is fairly well covered.

Phase three brings the routine full-circle by having the key vanish and reappear on your keychain. The "work" is done right in front of their noses and there's no need for reels or special gimmicks.

Finally, the routine is supplied with a number of little tags which can be used to create a nice souvenir for your audience member. It also comes with a simple keychain, in case you don't already have one. You'll also find an additional three pages of "Extras, Alternatives & Advice" well worth reading.

Manufacturer's Description:

A Complete Performance in your Pocket!


From The Enchantment, the creator of the highly successful Dreamweaver, comes another Anytime, Anywhere, multi-phase routine that is destine to be a classic. Archangel is the culmination of three highly commercial effects seamlessly implemented into one finely-tuned routine that is as amazing as it is memorable.

3 Keys - One Door
A member of the audience becomes faced with a difficult decision when she must choose between three keys. With a completely free choice, her decision proves to be the very key the performer predicted days before the routine began. A three-out effect so easy and convenient to carry. Unlock the door and enter the next phase…

Arching Key
Under test conditions, an ordinary key is signed/initialed by an audience member. This marked key is then held by the spectator and performer at each end of the key. Without any moves, the key begins to melt and bend in their hands. The signed key is then released and left in the spectator's hand clearly bent down the middle. There has never been a key bend as pure and straightforward as this…while held by the spectator no less.

Angel Flight
End your performance with a real crowd pleaser, and one of the most impossible flight effects ever devised. In a blink of the eye, the signed bent key completely vanishes only to be found hanging on the keyring of the performer's keychain. Not a ring flight, but a key flight - which makes sense! The key is 100% on the keychain and is removed by the spectator!

This is truly high caliber material that has bewildered some of the keenest minds in the business. Whether you are a magician or a mentalist, this is a hard-hitting affair that will raise your craft to a higher level. Requires you to supply your own keys, as after each performance you will be giving away a truly memorable souvenir in an impossible condition. Included in the book is a surplus of extra advice and additional performances. Including, a key flight where the signed bent key is found on the performer's keychain that has been in full view on the table the entire routine!

Don't forget the best part. The entire routine is self-contained on the special keychain and is ALWAYS ready to perform without even a moments notice. So the next time someone asks you to show them something, don't just do a trick, put on an entire show!

  • Self Contained
  • Resets in Seconds
  • No Jacket or Sleeves Required
  • Totally Examinable
  • Anytime, Anywhere Worker

Mentalism, metal bending and a flight all on one keychain!
Archangel is a real world routine you will have with you the rest of your life.
