The late Eric Mason used this effect and established it as one of his most solid reputation makers! Long unavailable due to the technical demands and quality manufacturing standards, we have now found a craftsman capable of producing a limited edition of this outstanding effect!
At any time, and we mean ANY TIME during the act, the performer borrows a burning cigarette, which he asks the owner to sign or mark with a ballpoint pen. The cigarette, while still burning, is placed in the performer's hand and instantly vanishes!
After some comedy byplay about cigarette smoking being unhealthy and the performer obviously doing the lender a favour, the magician points some distance away to a bottle inside which rests a beautiful Silver tube. The spectator is asked retrieve the bottle and hand it to the performer. The Silver tube is tipped out and attention is drawn to a fine hairline crack around its centre.
The spectator is asked to unscrew the tube -- this takes some time, and when the tube is eventually opened, he finds inside and removes his own signed cigarette! Everything may be examined!
If you prefer not to use a cigarette the effect may be performed using a signed and rolled up bank note such as a £5 note or a dollar bill.
We only have a few of these beautifully crafted effects available. Comes complete with the Silver Retriever, secret gimmick, and fully detailed manuscript written by Martin Breese. Hurry and get yours today and avoid disappointment.
