The Silver Edge by Kim Andersen

NickI was first concerned about the quality of these coins from what I read on another site. When I received this particular set from Ellusionist I was extremely satisfied with the quality of my set. Every single coin looks exactly the same. The video tutorial is good and provides some cool routines. Any magician who gets their hands on these coins will have a blast coming up with their own routines. I've never seen its equal.
PatrickDespite the secret being mentioned in the ad this is going to be something you're going to have to devote some time too. I personally cannot get the skin hold out to work because my skin isn't cooperating so to remedy this I use the quiver coin holder attached to my belt and just "adjust" my shirt to receive the coins. There is a lot of great material here but you will need to practice. You will have to find certain positions that work for you in the self working goshman pinch. My problem is if the coin is too deep into my finger palm position that the pinched coin falls when rotating my hand back around. Again, this is something you will just have to overcome yourself and make it work for you . Once you do that it's beautiful routines that hit hard. Recommend this if you are up for the challenge.
RussellI love these coins!I just wish that they were available in dollar size.
MarcI don’t write reviews very often but I feel I must.
I got my hands on these the day they were available. I have around 6 years of coin magic experience and I do believe that the routines are beginner to intermediate in skill level.
The coins are super well made and I have been using them almost exclusively since they cam out. Add a Turtle and create extra miracles, add a Dolphin and dear god the options.
Using these injunction with a few common gimmicks and most importantly, solid coin sleight of hand and you have an endless eel of options.
I have seen some negative reviews on these and I’m not sure why they are negative. If you “can’t” do the routines; you need to sit down with BoBos and get a beginner understanding of basic coin handling and you are gold. I have fooled laymen and magicians alike with what I feel is self working magic. Tennis pennies? No Problem! Coins across? No Problem! 3 Fly? No Problem! Just grit it out and practice some coin handling, you have to be bad before you can become “good”.
5 Stars from me.
My favorite coin gimmicks I own... other than my Turtle of course. ;)
AkisCoins are perfect quality. The effects are nice. Kim andersen is also ok teaching. But the most important thing is that with these coins there are a ton of tricks you can do.
PeterI am an amateur magician who is only started practicing because of people teasing me about my last name and not knowing Magic. This is the easiest by far coin magic trick to learn and requires very little concentrated practice. Not all the tricks shown in the video are extremely easy but a couple of them are unbelievably easy requiring only 10 minutes of practice. It is so easy and amazing that one of my no longer magician friends stole it from me and I have to re-order the coins.
CuenytThis is probably the worst purchase I’ve ever made guys. I hate to give bad reviews but the handling of the coins is not easy as they are super strong magnets. It is definitely not worth it to pay 115 Dollar for this set.
Yup must be very careful with the coins as they can stick together at any time. The dvd is great an die I agree that he puts a lot effort in it and it might suit him. However I don’t think this is good for daily use they are a
Other great coins Magic’s out there which I use a lot and they are reliable. Silver edge is ok but for me it was a waste of money and I hate to say that!
StephenI just recieved the coins - and whereas I don't have a review for them in action yet - I was VERY pleased that they came with three fifty cent pieces as well as the coins. WELL DONE E! WELL DONE!
SummaryAgree these coins are top quality. My problem is they are advertised as being good even for a beginner with coin magic. I am a magician with 20 yrs experience, albeit none with coins. Thinking this would be great I spent the $123 dollars only to find out each routine taught takes a great deal of coin sleight of hand that only comes with yrs of experience. I now have two choices...invest a great deal of time getting up or speed or try to sell the set at a loss. Very disappointed!
JonathanThis is excellent work. Great instruction (though a bit long). The coins are actually stronger than KREIS super mag coins. I tested them against FLUX and I get an extra inch reading with that device than my Kreis. So - the two mag coins are actually the strongest I have seen in the marketplace. Using this coin set for its intended purpose and then going into a FLUX (whioch hand) routine makes the set here even more valuable as these coins are already in play. The Flesh Holdout was mentioned by one reviewer here as not doable with these coins. I disagree. It is TOTALLY doable and this holdout with these coins is worth the price of the set many times over. It allows a totally open palm, clean hand production. Anyone who can't do this with this set is not doing it right (put less flesh into the coins - they will hold fine). The issue is they hold SO WELL there is minor clink when they are removed. You can eliminate it not by wetting as the creator discusses, but by firmly gripping with the third finger to retain the break as you pull into nowhere palm. Those who have this video will understand. For those thinking about buying it - run and do it before they are all out. This is a gem at a great price with a utility prop and superb instruction and thinking.
