Psychic Sword by Collectors’ Workshop(c. 1993,2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
A Beautiful Box and Routine originally created by Rich Bloch and Nick Ruggiero.
This is the George Robinson version of this effect and is certainly better than the original. Although, it comes with a clean prediction of any card that the spectator chooses using the sword it has many other uses where a card box is required. It has a unique release mechanism for the transformation which means the box can be handled by the spectator before the transformation if so desired.
If you look at the original version of this box you’ll see how the knob on the lid has this big wide brass ring where the knob is, and on the newer version that does not exist. It’s this sort of attention to detail that makes George Robinson such a fine craftsman!
Effect: A strong, mystifying and effective bit of mentalism combined with a wonderfully crafted piece of apparatus.
The performer displays a deck of cards and spreads it ribbon-style on the table. Opening a beautifully-crafted wooden box with brass fittings, the performer removes a small, but elegant Samurai Sword. As he does so, it is noted that an envelope rests inside the sword box. Offering the sword to the spectator, the performer asks the spectator to point to a card and push it from the pack (or stab it). “You might have made other selections”, says the performer, turning over cards at random, “but you chose the card on the sword that you’ve stabbed.”
“At this moment, no one in the world knows its identity, and for the moment, we will keep it that way. Before we arrived here tonight, I placed a single card in this envelope, and placed the envelope in the sword box. It’s time to reveal my selection.”
The envelope is opened and the card displayed. Then, for the first time, the stabbed card is revealed. Incredibly, they MATCH!.
The sheer beauty of the props will add mystery and class to your act. The effect will add MAGIC! Comes complete with deluxe sword box, sword,cards, envelopes, and complete instructions ready to perform.
NOTE: Our uniquely designed walnut box can be used for other prediction effects as well as spirit writing, bill switches, and other card effects. Our Psychic Sword Box is designed with a controllable release so that YOU control the hidden flap which can be released at YOUR command.
