These silks are ideal for any zombie ball routine. The material is thicker than the average silk allowing for more coverage but still maintains the pliability of normal silks. This silk is available in black or blue, please specify when ordering.
A freely selected card, picked from a small group of cards is placed face down on the table. A number is selected by another spectator. The magician counts down in the deck to that randomly selected number, and that card is shown to match the card selected by the first spectator.
The kicker is revealed when the deck is spread face up on the table and all the rest of the cards are totally blank!
One of the best trick decks ever invented. Perform the world's cleanest TRIUMPH with no sleight of hand!
The Cheek to Cheek Deck allows you to perform one of the cleanest and most powerful routines in card magic--with absolutely no sleight of hand! If you can have someone pick a card, put it back in the deck, and shuffle... you can do the trick!
Cheek to Cheek's specialty is the Triumph routine. Here's how it works:
A card is selected and returned to the deck. The cards are shuffled face-up into face-down. At this point the magician seemingly has no way of possibly finding the card. But, with a snap of the fingers, the magician fixes the deck... all the cards are face-down... all except for one, the selected card!
Expert card magicians use Cheek to Cheek when they can't risk getting caught doing a "move"... It's a great choice for TV Appearances or anytime there's gonna be too much heat on the handling.
The amazing thing about Cheek to Cheek is that it allows beginners to perform a world class version of Triumph instantly--with no difficult moves and no sleight of hand!
Just pop in the DVD and you'll be ready to start performing within minutes!
Running Time Approximately 55min
The magician asks a spectator to attempt to insert a key into a bottle, after several failed attempts... no can. At that time the artist takes the key with his hands and without any effort, introduces the key in the bottle! To end the game, the magician pulls the key from the bottle and viewers can inspect the items.
Includes: set of 2 keys (one gimmicked) and instruction sheet.
This is a classic Tally-Ho Back design with full-color printing.
And there are two advertising cards:
Blank Card applies to magic
Rose Card represents different meanings of love for each color.
You show a small bottle of drink which can be examined. You unscrew the cap from the bottle and take a sip. You then push the cap into the bottom of the bottle where it vanishes and reappears back on top of the bottle, actually screwed back on. Can be immediately handed out again for examination.
Part of the gimmick is based on an idea by Johnny Thompson and Dr Carlo.
You dribble through the deck and ask four different spectators to call stop as you do this is an amazing open handling of the spectator cuts to the four aces.
This is a beautiful revelation of the four aces that is visual and makes you feel a little bit of Nirvana.
Packet Cut Aces
Based on Eddie Fechter's amazing packet force this is discovery will have people wondering if you made a pact with the devil.
Deal With It Aces
A coincidence effect inspired by father Cyprian that has a final "in the hands" revelation that will leave them stunned.
This is eye candy. An Ace production that looks like magic.
A beautiful visual routine inspired by the great Master Earnest Earick that utilizes the famous Flippant move in an interesting way.
Many respect Him. Many study him. All fear him. His name is Kainoa Harbottle. In this body of work, Kainoa offers a structurally and visually beautiful one coin routine that should be studied, dissected and admired. This is PORTAL.
This is Kainoa's newest gem, a single coin effect that offers several new moves that will get your blood pumping and your fingers flicking. It also includes a new vanish that has to be seen to be believed. Vanish and produce coins at will with PORTAL.

The clever card and coin magic of Sadowitz and Duffie has helped us gain various accolades including one for Card Magic Publisher of the Year.
