Slates of Solomon by Collectors’ Workshop

(c. 1996) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Slates of Solomon is based upon Milson’s (yes before Milson-Worth) Satyr’s Slate c. 1971. However, they are a lot larger (as can be seen in the final photo for comparison) and unlike Satyr’s Slate allows you to reveal two predictions instead of just one.

The Slates of Solomon are certainly better engineered than Satyr’s Slate too, but that was clearly the inspiration. I also prefer the size of this Collectors’ Workshop slates – they are just about right.  Dave Powell introduce a similar set of Spirit Slates in 2016 but they were bigger again (at 4.5″ x 5.5″).  As is often the case, Collectors’ Workshop produced the perfect version.  Even though Dave Powell’s version are better quality again, the size makes them less useful for walk around.

Includes:

  • Slates of Solomon (two slates)
  • Piece of Chalk, Rubber band, carry bag
  • Also includes 6H matchbook from video (bonus)
  • Deck of cards (bonus)
  • use your own ashtray, flash paper and pen (not included)

Effect: As in the legendary diamond mines of King Solomon, we have re-discovered these gems. Beautifully fashioned in a stained-wood border, the slate is shown to the spectator and placed in his hand. Spectator covers the slate with his other hand.

Two cards are selected, slate is turned over, and the name of the first card has mysteriously appeared. Slate is turned over once more. The name of the second card is now showing. Includes patter presentation and a second examination slate.

In the improved routine displayed in the video a third card is chosen and revealed as part of the matchbook after failing to write a third time on the slates.

Size approx: 3″ x 4″.
