Level One by Christian Grace is a gimmick that allows you to progressively vanish ANY deck of cards. This completely sold out at Blackpool 2019 and has not been available since. 

Consider these points:
  • You end clean. The last card can be fully examined.
  • It's easy to do. It will take just a short time to learn how to use the gimmick.
  • There are no angle restrictions. You can perform Level One surrounded.
  • The last card is completely examinable.
  • There are no flaps, threads or magnets. You receive a solid-state gimmick. It will never break.

Package includes 
Level One gimmick and online instructions.

Sure looks like a ditch at the end of the demo.

My two cents ... a great idea, but the actual “move” is quite knacky to do it smoothly and undetected.
The ditch at the clean up is frankly nothing and no one will see it all. IF... You get that far...

I purchased this and agree with your assessment. It’s kind of knacky, but I’m going to continue working on it in hopes that I can add it to my repertoire.

According to reviews, the video explains how to "ring in" the gimmick.  However, none of the trailers I've seen demonstrate it, they all begin with the deck in hand and in position to begin the effect.  So I would like to see how it fits into a routine, say ACR, seamlessly.  If you have to go to your briefcase or something to set it up then it limits where and when you can do it.

If you own the gimmick I understand there's a private FB page that has hints/tricks.

If you own Patrick Redford's book "Temporarily Out of Order", he has a FB page as well and was given permission to share his video he did for the Level One page. He has a few finesses he shows there that might help with the 'knacky' side of this.

There's a full performance on the product page at Vanishing Inc, which gives an idea of what's necessary getting into and out of the effect. It's the second video at the top.

Thanks for the heads-up!

I checked the video and was pleasantly surprised to find that it is indeed practical.  I was afraid it would have to be set up as an opener or you would have to duck under the table, or into your carrying case in order to get it in position to do the effect.

I will say that if you are working with people behind you a jacket might make sense.  In the video, his back is to a wall and in that case, no problem.

I liked the byplay with the woman and the cell phone.  Nice touch.

So to sum up my feelings, after seeing the video I think this is a definite winner.

You could also do a "card to pocket" as part of a trick and when you come back from your pocket - you have the gimmick in hand.
