Ring Thru Sword Mystery by Magic Wagon(c. 2017) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
So another well made effect from those talented guys at Magic Wagon based on Magiro’s amazing Witch’s Tunnel. This one works smoothly and looks great but I have a problem with the size of the unit.
Many of the items that Magic Wagon remake are stunning to look at but because they are often 2, 3 or 4 times as big as the original item they are just not as magical. When props get small there are less places to hide things which makes them much less suspicious to spectators.
So I’d like to see a focus on the magic just as much as the prop if possible … just my two cents 🙂
Effect: The performer displays a beautiful wooden tube along with a small brass sword & ring. He now picks up the tube to reveal two wooden posts which are attached to a thin base; each post has a hole near the top. The tube is then replaced and the sword is inserted through the holes via the sides of the tube. The ring is now dropped into the slot at the top and when the tube is finally removed, the ring is seen to have impaled itself ON the sword! It’s an impossible penetration!
The only way to remove the ring is to, in fact, remove the sword. If it’s your performing style, then everything can now be handed out for complete examination.
Ring thru Sword Mystery has been inspired by one of the rarest pieces from Magiro called Witch’s Tunnel. If you’re unfamiliar with the method, you’re going to be amazed by the ingeniously designed mechanism used with the non-magnetic ring.
The entire unit stands approximately 17.5cms tall, including a small brass handle and has been completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish.
Our special thanks to Mr. David De Graef for suggesting the ideas & consultations on this amazing piece of magic.
