Sword of the Ring by Magic Wagon, Trickery(c. 2007) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The performer displays a beautiful wooden cabinet. The front door is then opened allowing a view of the clean interior. A ring is now borrowed from a spectator and placed onto the cushion of a ring pedestal. Next, the pedestal along with the spectator’s ring is openly placed into the cabinet and the front door is closed. The performer now picks up a miniature brass sword and shows it to be perfectly solid. The brass sword is then inserted through a slot at the top of the cabinet and both ends of the sword can be seen either side of the cabinet.
With absolutely no hesitation, the performer pushes the sword straight down to the bottom of the cabinet. When the door is again opened, the brass sword is found to have magically penetrated right through the spectator’s ring! The sword can then be removed through the slots at the front of the cabinet showing the borrowed ring to be unharmed and allowing it to slide down the sword and fall off into the spectator’s awaiting hand!
The tower unit cannot be fully examined but the sword and holder can be and everything looks clean.
This was a precursor to a improved version that came out in 2018. Click here for more details on the 30+ year history of this effect.
Effect: A small cabinet, a miniature sword and a ring pedestal are shown. The performer borrows a ring from a spectator and a borrowed ring is then placed into a pedestal. The pedestal is openly placed on the cabinet’s floor and the door is then closed. The performer now picks up the sword and shows all around to be solid. A sword is then inserted into the sides of the cabinet near its top. With absolutely no hesitation, the performer pushed the sword down through the ring! When the front door is again opened, the sword is found to have magically penetrated right through the spectator’s ring! The performer then pulls the sword forward though the slots showing the ring to be unbroken and allows it to fall out from the sword into the spectator’s awaiting hand!
- Use ANY borrowed ring. This will work with any type and style of ring as long as it fits into the pedestal.
- It can be instantly repeated with absolutely no re-setting.
- Completely self contained. Nothing is added or taken away.
This hand-crafted beauty is one of the marvels of true craftsmanship which you will admire.
