Delben Blotter by Viking Mfg.(c. 1978,2006) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I have always been a fan of Ben Stone’s Delben Blotter. Unfortunately, they have been increasingly difficult to track down, and apart from the awful, unauthorized blotter from Magic Makers, they have not been available for years.
With the permission of “Danny’s Trix & Kix” of Spring, TX (the current owners of the Delben line) George Robinson at Viking and Joe Steven’s at Steven’s Magic have collaborated and created a blotter that even Ben Stone would be proud of. George has stayed as close as possible to the original Delben Blotter (as can be seen in the last photo) and has produced a very attractive blotter at a good price.
Effect: The magic blotter can be used for a number of impressive routines. The most well know is the Money Machine. Place a blank piece of paper on the base and rock the blotter over it. The paper instantly changes into real money!
Or place a dollar bill on the base and change it into a $100 bill! This will get their attention. Or have a card selected and torn into pieces, retaining one piece, arrange the pieces on the base, rock the blotter and the card is restored and the one piece matches the restored card which is missing a piece!
The Delben Blotter looks like an old-fashioned desk blotter and is beautifully constructed out of black walnut with a hand-polished finish. The method is undetectable.
Approx. Price: $125.00 (2006) ***
