Pencil Without A Middle by Magic Wagon(c. 2013) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
(Spoiler Alert!) So how many times have you heard the phrase: “it’s all done with mirrors” when it comes to magic? And how many tricks do you actually have that use mirrors? 1 maybe – a mirror production box, or a sword box?
Yes this miracle does use mirrors. I probably shouldn’t have said that but it is late! I think the illusion is perfect, which is more than I can say for my photos. I can’t believe I did not add a visual item like a deck of cards so you can see it through the box – Magic Wagon have one on their site.
But as with most of Magic Wagon’s items, this is the perfect little illusion. It just looks amazing! Beautifully made and wonderful to watch.
Effect: A beautifully decorated cabinet along with a pencil are displayed (a borrowed pencil can be used). A pencil is placed on a stand and a cabinet is placed over, leaving both ends of the pencil in full view. The performer then pulls the center section of the cabinet straight up, opens the front door of the cabinet and the middle section of the pencil is completely GONE! He is then removed the back door and the audience can see right THROUGH the cabinet! The performer then waves his hand behind the pencil, shows both sides of the cabinet and the pencil’s middle is simply not there. It’s a great miniature illusion.
The method is very old but it is still one of the very best optical sciences ever created. And, due to the method used, the illusion is best viewed from at least 8 feet away.
Each cabinet is delicately hand-crafted from genuine teak and nicely adorned with brass hardware.
Due to the level of complexity and amount of work involved, this specific item is offered only in a limited quantity.
Approx. Price: $350.00 (2013) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
