Cocktail Shaker by Viking Mfg.(c. 2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Cocktail Shaker styled Niffin tubes were made in the 1930’s by Thayer Quality Magic and Stull too, this version is made in Germany and is distributed by Viking Mfg and it’s ever growing dealer network. The first one was invented by American magician Paul Fox (real name Paul Fuchs) in 1935 and debuted by him at the 1936 IBM Convention in Lima, Ohio.
This device is very nicely made using stainless steel and will last a life time. I found the screw on lids to not screw down all the way, but that looked like it was done by design.
Effect: The problem with a Niffen Tube is that it’s a Niffen Tube – what the heck is one of those? This Cocktail Shaker on the other hand will pass for a real cocktail shaker and can be used to transform liquids, silks, or anything small that will fit in the tube. You could transform a red silk to red wine and many other combinations of transformations. I believe the transformation is also more convincing than a regular tube too.
Approx. Price: $95.00 (2004) ***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.
