Magiro put out a neat card box years ago called the Clairvoyance Chest. It had one main distinction to the other boxes out there – a slit in the side that would allow you to push cards into the box, and then via use of the handle you could change them without anyone knowing. It was a simple addition but very powerful. Unfortunately, the Magiro box had this huge knob for the box which screamed trickery. When I saw it I immediately thought of CW’s Psychic Sword – the box that George puts out has all the characteristics that you need, and if only you could add a slit for the cards it would be perfect.

So I contacted my good friend George Robinson and asked him if he could add the slit – he thought it over and three days later this beauty arrived. It is perfect and takes the Magiro idea to a whole new level. George even includes three other ideas (in addition to the original Psychic Sword) with the box and I could not be happier.

This has always been my favorite card box, but now there is nothing even close to it. I love it George!

Highly recommended for Collectors, Mentalists, and Magicians everywhere – this box is easily the most versatile card box ever created!

Thomas has revamped his Treasure Chamber of the High Priests, and it is better than ever! The mechanism has been improved and the new look is gorgeous!

Performer displays a colorful and decorative chest with lid. The lid is removed to reveal a gold plate. This plate is slid out to reveal the inner chamber that contains two boxes mounted inside. One is red, the other green. A spectator places any small object (their ring, a signed coin, handwritten note, etc) into either the red or green box. It’s a free choice which one they select. Once this is done, the gold plate is placed back on along with the lid.

When the inner boxes are again uncovered, the box containing the borrowed object is found to be empty. The other box is opened, and the object is found to have mysteriously traveled from one box to the other! The spectator herself opens the boxes.

A clever effect and a beautiful piece for display.

Another beauty from Thomas Pohle! Lots of opportunities to amaze and amuse with this item. A simple routine allows you to show this ornate Chinese decorated tower with three drawers. The top one has a red ball filling it and the others are shown empty. With a wave the red ball in the top moves to the bottom drawer. Then after more byplay the red vanishes and appears in the middle drawer, but now it is black. You can use pretty much any little items that fit the box.

You could do a monte type effect where you ask the spectator to keep an eye on where the ball is. It is always under your control of course. You can make them win or lose!

Very clever and beautifully made by Thomas as always!
