Re: Doug Henning Tenyo Magic Set

John, You did a fantastic job recreating the box art! I was very surprised and delighted to find a mint set 30 odd years later. Especially since only about 50 of set B ever saw the light day (According to Tenyo-ism). I have no clue what the value would be. I will let you know should i ever decide to...

Doug Henning Tenyo Magic Set

Rarely does good fortune come my way but it did in a big way this past week! I acquired, what I consider, one of the "Holy Grail" Tenyo items…A Doug Henning Tenyo magic set (set B) in mint condition, still in the shrink wrap. Along with the set came a 19 x 25 box art poster, a one page (printed fron...

Re: 2018 tenyo

Today I received my first genuine Tenyo item, the Smart Guillotine. And I'll say I agree that it is smart. I had no idea until I tried it, and it is a real fooler. My unit was slightly bent (the transparent part of the main unit), unfortunately, but it could be straighted to a useable state without...

Re: 2018 tenyo

If you want to know how the same principle used for the blade would look if it had been made in Japan, just take a look at Mystic Blackboard. That should answer your question. Same principle, same inventor. I always thought that Mystery Blackboard was one of the great Tenyo effect and never underst...

Re: 2018 tenyo

I have been reading any and all reviews of the guillotine and find it interesting that the opinions are all over the place concerning appearance, performability (a new word?), and overall rating of the item. One person said that it's a great piece to play with but not to perform. Others like it! So...

Re: 2018 tenyo

I also received Smart Guillotine today. It's method is much simpler than I imagined but clever. I am concerned about one aspect when it comes to showing the blade, but I won't post any comments yet until others receive there copy and get to see its method. I'll be curious to hear others comments on...

Re: 2018 tenyo

I just received the Smart Guillotine and I love it!!! I'm glad I ordered two. :D The dimensions of the blade never change as it magically penetrates the dollar or finger. I couldn't fingure out how this was possible since the blade is shown solid at the start of the trick. The method is so simple ye...

Re: 2018 tenyo

Smart Guillotine looks deceptive but everyone will be suspicious of the black blade and want to examine it. Especially since the back of the blade is never show.
Having said that, I will still purchase one because it reminds me of older classic Tenyo effects.

Re: 2018 tenyo

Release date : December 11 129 I just took a quick look at the Smart Guillotine image and something very noticeable (to me) stood out that points to a possible method. I'm looking forward to the video on this one to see how deceptive it is in real life. Knowing that what I see, as a magician, and w...

Re: 2018 tenyo

The Guillotine will probably be my only Tenyo purchase this year. I'm on the fence with Bento box.
3D Magic Works has been satisfying my craving for cleaver mini illusions. ;)

Re: Tenyo Elite

I don't care for this "Elite" version either. $250 for this piece is way over priced.

I just don't understand why Tenyo Elite keeps skipping over all the truly great Tenyo pieces. :?

Re: 2018 tenyo

I took a very close look at the Mental Bento box on the YouTube video and saw something in the design that I believe gave away the method. Hopefully spectators won't find it as peculiar as I did.
I find Mental Bento to be very similar to Psy Chip by Tricks Co, Ltd.
