Devin Knight

Professional Magician and Hypnotist

Devin Knight is regarded as one of magic's most prolific inventors. He is also a highly sought after lecturer for both magicians and mentalists. Most of his effects are run-away best sellers and have received rave reviews. Devin was a protege of the late Al Mann and currently works as a full-time magician and mentalist. Devin strives to create effects that not only fool magicians, but at the same time are easy to do. The majority of his effects rely more on clever ideas, rather than difficult sleights. This puts most of his effects within the skill range of most magicians.

The Vampire Effect: how to cast no reflection by Devin Knight

Vampires supposedly have no reflections in mirrors. This is folklore, but suppose you as a performer could really create this effect. What kind of reaction do you think your spectator's would have, if you had no reflection in a mirror? Would they be amazed or scared?

Devin Knight is finally revealing secret techniques that he developed. These secrets allow you to create the vampire effect, and in some cases do it almost impromptu.

Knight revealed these secrets to Al Mann in the mid-80s and at that time Mann wanted to release volume 2 of Invisible Men with these techniques revealed. Unfortunately,...

Three Mind Miracles by Devin Knight

This ebook contains three effects from Devin Knight that are about as close to real mindreading as you can get.

TAROT FOLD TOLD

An ungimmicked Tarot Deck is shown and given to anyone to shuffle. Four people are invited to come forward. They remove the top five cards from the shuffled Tarot Deck and arrange them face up on a table in any order. They do this while you are across the room and CAN NOT SEE THE CARDS. Each person is asked to just think of one of the cards. They say nothing and write nothing down. Everyone could be thinking of the same card or each person could be thinking of...

Thumb Fun by Devin Knight & Sid Lorraine

This was one of Sid Lorraine's most popular tricks. It has been off the market for more than 40 years. Devin Knight obtained permission from the Abbott Magic Company to release this again and to update the original directions. How good is this effect? Well, it was one of the late Doug Henning's favorite tricks and was personally taught to him by Sid. Doug Henning used it everywhere, including in some of his touring stage shows, showing it on a big screen behind him.

A playing card is selected and kept a secret from the performer. The performer shows five small white cards blank on both sides,...

Tri-Epic by Devin Knight

If you are looking for a large visual stage mental effect, then look no further! Tri-Epic is an updated mental epic type effect, but without the old fashion chalk boards, and WITH NO ONE-AHEAD method. Tri-Epic is new, novel and different! This effect sells from magic dealers for over $300 new with all the props. You can make it for a fraction of that.

(Although similar to the smaller, In The News, the method and handling are different. This is designed for stage work. In The News was more for close-up and parlor work.)

Tri-Sight by Devin Knight

The performer calls attention to three face-down envelopes that are on a table in full view. He says these contain three predictions. The performer then has a playing card freely selected and signed while he looks away; there is no force of any kind. The selected card is then lost in the deck. The deck is given to the participant, who cuts the deck at random and deals three cards face down onto the table. The performer then shows three more envelopes. He places the three dealt cards into these three envelopes, without looking at them. Neither the performer nor the participant knows the identity...

U. F. Grant's Lost Illusion Secrets Revealed by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

This is the largest collection of U. F. Grant illusions and illusionettes every assembled. It took Devin Knight several years to compile this collection. Grant wrote a few books on illusions such as: 15 Great Illusions, Chinese Magic and Illusions, Modern Levitations, Victory Carton Illusions, Grant's Illusion Secrets, and many others. However, most of the illusions in this PDF were not included in those manuscripts.

Over the years, Grant sold many manuscripts that just contained one illusion along with building plans in most cases. (Some of these were released by Percy Abbott in his catalog without credit to U. F. Grant.) This compilation is a collection of those plans released by Grant and also in the early...

UF Grant's Lost Card Secrets by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

This new e-book contains five of U. F. Grant's forgotten and almost lost card miracles. The first four effects are from a booklet released in 1931 that contained what Grant considered to be his four best card effects. The release was called: Counterfeit Card Miracles. It is very rare and almost impossible to find today. Devin has taken the four effects and updated them and expanded the directions. These are real magician foolers!

#1- A spectator shuffles his own deck of cards and looks at one, remembering what number from the top that card is. For example, he may choose to remember the card...

Unknown Forces by Devin Knight

If you are looking for a mind-blowing effect that even fools most magicians, then look no further. This is a PK demonstration at its best and looks like the real thing! You can apparently control objects with your mind. This was one of the late Al Mann's favorite PK effects and he fooled the author completely with it.

The principle is almost forgotten and little known. It is only known by a handful of magicians and was used in the past by mediums to fool the public and most magicians. These are effects you can do and not get caught as there are no gimmicks. With this secret you can do mind-boggling...

A new comedy mental effect based on a new term UNSHOP, which means to return something at the checkout-counter because you bought too much and cannot afford it.

The performer invites a male participant to take an imaginary shopping trip. He is told to imagine he has gone to a store and is going to buy a new outfit. His new outfit will consist of a sports coat, shirt, necktie, pants, socks, shoes, and even a pair of boxer shorts. He is told that when he gets to the checkout-counter, he discovers he does not have enough money with him and has to return something to the shelf. The participant...

Unwritten Thought by Devin Knight & Al Mann

A participant thinks of two words with opposite meanings. The performer tells him to decide upon one word and to forget the other. He settles on a word in his mind after deciding from several thousand possibilities. He does not look at a list of words, but freely decides on a word in his mind. He is not to tell the performer the final word or write it, just concentrate on it. The performer picks up a piece of cardboard and with no fishing or questions; writes a word and shows it to the participant and audience. Let's assume the performer wrote: 'Beautiful'. The performer says, "Does that define...

Walking Through a Woman Illusion by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

At last, here is a new illusion effect and one that any performer may own. Yet, here is an illusion which will compete with the best of them and it will not cost you several hundred dollars to own it or even a tenth of that. In my opinion this is more effective than the Interlude Illusion at a fraction of the cost.

EFFECT: Setting at the center of the stage are four chairs, in a row facing the audience. There is a space between the two center chairs wide enough for the performer to walk through. A girl assistant is then placed in a reclining position across the seats of the four chairs....

Mentalist states that the two most talked about things among strangers are the weather and sports. They go hand-in-hand, as the weather often affects sports. You then show a CD prediction and place it in a CD player. You say this contains a prediction that will hopefully match a weather forecast the spectators will form at random.

You ask the first person to name one of his favorite sports. Assume he says: Golf. This is written on...

Zenith Spirit Manifestation by W. G. Magnuson & Devin Knight

This was designed to fool both skeptics and magicians. This is one of the most stunning mediumistic stunts ever devised. It was developed and used by the old school mediums. It was so unbelievable; it fooled reporters, skeptics and magicians. A medium who could be searched and placed into a darkened room could cause a spirit to materialize in full view, without the aid of any secret assistants. This could be done in anyone's home.

The amazing thing was that this was accomplished without luminous cardboard props, luminous cheesecloths, luminous paint or other props sold by Nelson Enterprises....
