The Ultimate Key Bending Routine. In the early 1970's, at the "dawning of the Age of Aquarius," a young Israeli named Uri Geller attracted worldwide attention with his "psychic" abilities.

The Ultimate Key Bending Routine. In the early 1970's, at the "dawning of the Age of Aquarius," a young Israeli named Uri Geller attracted worldwide attention with his "psychic" abilities. While he demonstrated several paranormal skills, it was his "psychokinetic" ability to bend silverware, borrowed keys, and nails that set him apart from other "New Age" psychics. In the years that followed many mentalists and magicians added "metal bending" routines to their repertoires, and many sleights and gimmicks have been devised to facilitate the effect.

You may have noticed that most of the modern material on the subject deals with silverware and coins. Key bending seems to have fallen by the wayside. This is unfortunate, for the "psychic bending" of a borrowed key is, in Bob's opinion, the strongest effect of the genre. It also makes a performer's subsequent coin, nail, or silverware bending far more effective.
