Michael Skinner was an award winning, world class close-up magician who
amazed and entertained a great many people during his distinguished career.
His passing was a major loss to the magical arts community. But he left us with something, his special edge. A tool that will serve future magicians and provide a legacy by which Mike is remembered forever.
The late Michael Skinner was considered to be one of the finest
close-up magicians in the world. Eight years at the Magic Castle
studying with the Professor, Dai Vernon, and for over 25 years,
the magician in residence at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas,
Skinner’s work is well documented. What did Mike have, besides the largest sleight-of-hand card repertoire of any working
performer? An “EDGE”!
Contact: That 'edge' was a specially formulated crème that Michael carried in a small plastic container.
Wherever he went, Skinner wore
that container on his ankle inside
his sock so that whenever called
upon, he could excuse himself to
"wash up" and perform miracles
with a borrowed deck. A secret that he shared with only a small circle of friends, the folks at Legerdomain have decided to honor Michael by making his "edge" available to any magician, conjurer, juggler, and worker who would like to benefit from having that little something special in their pocket (or sock).
Skinner's Edge Card Crème is more than just an edge for the sleight of hand magician. It's an edge for the salesman and his shop. It's a natural way to help the customer while enhancing the sale. It's just the right edge to insure their success and their return to your counter for future purchases. The perfect accessory for any trick that requires manipulative control, whether it card or coin, just ask the customer, "would you like a little edge to help you do this better?"-John Deems
