Box Ninety-Eight Pro Limited Edition 1 of 1 by Handcrafted Miracles(c. 2017) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I was so impressed with the basic version of Box Ninety-Eight that I contacted Dan (or Dannicus as he is known) to see if he could build me a pro version. And boy did he ever! Dan created a limited edition of one for this beautiful box in Bubinga (Brazilian Rosewood) with ebony inlays. It’s hand finished with 8 coats of boiled Linseed oil, beeswax and buffed.
This box is slightly smaller than the basic version and fits in the hand even easier. It works like a dream and if you wonder what sort of items I keep in my collection – well this is one of them. Perfect in every way and such a clever and secret mechanism.
Working with Dan was a pleasure and I look forward to buying more from his great company Handcrafted Miracles in the future. Thank-you Dan for giving so much to the craft, it is always a pleasure working with a genuine craftsman who appreciates the art of magic.
- Hand the spectator a small locked box to examine and hide away in their pocket or purse etc.
- Perform a favorite magic or mentalism effect
- Have the spectator retrieve the box, which is placed immediately on the table where it remains in full view while THE SPECTATOR UNLOCKS THE BOX THEMSELF AND REMOVES THE PREDICTION OR SIGNED CARD (or a coin, ring, bill, billet, lottery ticket, anything really)
- Try to avoid the unscrupulous urge to start a religion
While the concept was simple, making a box capable of invisibly accomplishing the task proved far more difficult. After three long years of designing, CAD programming, and failed prototypes (ninety-seven of them to be precise), Handcrafted Miracles is pleased to release Box Ninety-Eight to friends in the mentalist and magic community.
Box Ninety-Eight is as close to the perfect worker’s dream as Handcrafted Miracles could create. Those who are familiar with them know that they have no interest in misleading ad copy or videos so with that in mind consider the following, which any working magician or mentalist will certainly appreciate.
- Is small enough to fit in a jacket or hip pocket; perfect for close-up mentalism or magic
- Is fully examinable before, during and after the effect
- Has an inset brass lock with a key, perfect for mailing ahead to clients for predictions and equally perfect for removing all doubt about gimmickry
- Is opaque, building mystery and putting the “magic punch line” at the end of the effect, thereby providing the best impact on the audience
- Gets spectators involved since they hold the box throughout the entire performance
- Has almost no angle issues and can be performed surrounded
- Has unmatched versatility, can be used with billets, cards, coins, business cards, finger rings, lottery tickets, anything that will fit inside. No prior gimmicking or special preparation of items required
- It is loaded instantly while in full view with no questionable or awkward moves. The load is so quick and casual, spectators will swear that you never touched the box
- Requires no reset — simply close the lid and lock it
- Looks nice but ordinary, and is quality built to last for generations
- Is unlocked and opened by the spectator, who removes the item themself; the performer has no need to be near it while it is opened
