-This effect was invented by Michael Weber. See his "​Silverwhere?"​ in Michael Ammar'​s //The Topit Book//, 1983, p. 76. Weber came up with this in 1977 or 1978, after reading Dr. Hiroshi Sawa's spoon-bending effect "Gary Ueller"​ in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​37003/​Genii/​25|Genii]]//,​ Vol. 41No. 1, January 1977, p. 25. Weber applied Sawa's idea to transform a spoon into a fork, and also to effect the transposition of those two items. Over the years, variants, embellishments and knock-offs have appeared on the magic market worldwide, most often without mention of Sawa and Weber. Among the embellishments is the the addition of a small piece of magnetic rubber or Blu-tack adhesive-putty to the gaff to make handling easier.+This effect was invented by Michael Weber.
