This is a fantastic item. I happen to know the guy who made this. He is a very professional craftsman. Yes the price is high but I believe it is worth every penny.

Can't afford it unfortunately at the moment...

Probably only a few are made.

It's the same guy who also made Cubes and tubes, new copies are available now:

Ooh...the price on Cubes and Tubes has doubled! I'm glad I purchased this effect when it was first listed a few months ago.

As soon as I see this post I ordered it, the price is not that high considering the quality.
I haven't ordered any MW lately so I was getting a bit impatient for a new addition.
I love having something in the post :D

Only Three days to arrive in Australia from Holland.
When I buy something from Europe the Tax is removed and we don't pay any import tax so this cost me about the same as someone buying from Holland :D

There is almost no noise and it instantly resets, apart from the ring its all Perspex (plastic)
It comes in a neat velvet lined plywood box.
I love it.

This sounds fantastic Simon, and I am very tempted to order the Chinese version, now in stock... I was worried about noise issues but glad to hear it works very silent. It's actually better than Crystal Cleaver, because you don't have to push the wand downwards! So it's an advanced mechanism!

I just saw the Chinese version too (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOD2Zz7ejwg) - looks great.

But ... whenever I perform Crystal Cleaver, it seems one or two people always know the mechanism because of the trick being so long available and, even more surprising, some people had the Magic Works version of it (which was also available in Belgium/Holland).

Yes, you don't have to push the wand down, but pushing the wand down, penetrating the ring and box, does enhance the illusion in my opinion ... but that could be just me ;)

I think this is a great trick, and I would like to add it to my collection, but the price is a bit high for me (325 EURO ? Come on ... :o ). And I don't think it can be examined as Crystal Cleaver can.

Wonderfull trick, but a bit overpriced, imho ... .

It must be a small batch, hence the price...

Must be difficult to produce commercially because of the labour involved.

So I think the price is right, especially with the added suitcase...

Can't buy this however at the moment.

Frans Reijnier, the man behind Ring Escape Deluxe, visited me a few days ago, and showed me the Chinese Ring Escape deluxe. I was impressed because of the amazing craftsmanship.

I showed him my Lego Ring Through Wand and Mystic Ribbon Temple, and he was very enthusiastic. He considered both creations of mine Tenyo-like :)

It's great to have a magic friend like Frans, who even lives very nearby :)

We have plans to work together, he has a workshop with a laser cutter, we both have lots of ideas, so.... to be continued....
