Bionik (DVD and Gimmick) Review

This review is pretty simple. If you want to bend a butter knife, this is a pretty easy way to accomplish it. If you watch the Video, what you see is what you get. I was not personally thrilled with the “routine” that Mr. Penn suggested. I find it a bit contrived. However, without too much thought I think you would be able to come up with your own script and moment of misdirection.

The Gimmick is solid and works well. There has been some talk about wearing it and it being seen by the lay audience. I don’t think there would be issue here. In today’s world where we carry so many smart devices around with us, I think the Gimmick (if they even notice it) could easily be considered some sort of smart device carrying clip.

Mr. Penn gives some alternate handlings on the DVD which are clever and fun. Your only decision on this product will be is it worth the price to you to bend a butter knife. I could see this being great fun for a restaurant worker, bring your own knives so as to keep you job, however.

I’m giving this 4 stars because I was not happy with the routine, but the gimmick itself is a 5.

Manufacturer's Description:

From David Penn, the creator of Coinvexed 2. Wizard FX Productions proudly presents BIONIK.

An examined dinner knife is signed by the spectator along the handle. They hold onto the handle and can clearly see that the knife is straight. All you do is massage the blade softly causing it to bend at a 45 degree angle. The bent knife never leaves the spectators hand and can be immediately examined. This leaves the spectator with an impossible object that they cannot bend back!

BioniK can also be used to bend the extreme handles of forks or spoons to further enhance your metal bending routines.

The same straight knife that is signed is the one that bends. No switches! NOTHING concealed in your hands to achieve the bend at anytime.
  • Precision made gimmick and instructional DVD included.
  • Perform it in short sleeves.
  • Effortless in execution.
  • Leaves the spectator with an impossible object.
