Tired of toy store chain escapes that leave your audience in doubt? Lock up and throw away the key! The Old World Siberian Chain Escape will keep your audience on the edge of their seats. A sure-fire hit, bound to make an impression!
The Siberian Chain Escape is the oldest, most reliable chain escape available to magicians. It's virtually self-working (though you do have a hand in it). The problem is, today's mass produced SCE—as it is known to magicians and escape artists—is a feeble chain, cheap lock, and the rings are often key rings, suspect at first glance.
Now, you have a professional option. The Old World Siberian Chain Escape is an industrial-strength steel chain, one-inch steel rings, and a genuine Brinks 5-pin brass padlock, charcoal-fired and gas-torched to look every bit as mean as the convicts it was designed to imprison. Real steel. Real strong. You still escape in seconds!
• Get out FAST! Get back in FAST!
• Dead-serious feat of enormous danger...
• or a hilarious comedy routine!
• Made famous by Houdini in 1902!
• Includes collectable Houdini card!
• Five-Year Workmanship Warranty!
• PLUS instructional DVD!
The Old World Siberian Chain Escape looks impossible to laymen, but you get out of these restraints FAST! And back into them just as quickly. Making this the perfect chain escape for your favorite
comedy routine, or the wrist component to a
demonstration of skill.
The Siberian Chain Escape is based on the
"Siberian Prison Transport Restraints"
from the late nineteenth century. The restraints, used widely in the region, were thought escape proof. In 1902, the Imperial Police of Cologne
"slanderously libeled Harry Houdini, stating his advertised tricks were swindles."
They claimed Houdini was unable to escape from genuine prisoner restraints.
Houdini sued the Imperial Police for defamation and demonstrated three escapes in front of judges in an official court of law. Legend has it, one of the escapes was the Siberian Chain Escape (it is sometimes called the Houdini Chain Escape for this reason). Houdini won the case and was issued a public apology by command of Kaiser Wilhelm II, Emperor of Germany, thrusting Houdini into global stardom.
The Old World Siberian Chain Escape is crafted from fine steel by Aaron Smith, creator of the
Poor Boy ZipTie Escape
. The finished product, complete with a five-year warranty on workmanship, is something you will be proud to perform in your show.
The Old World Siberian Chain Escape comes with the high-quality chain (approx. two feet in length) fitted with two 60,000 psi tensile strength welded rings, a Brinks brass padlock and key, the instructional DVD, a velvet storage bag, and a collector's card featuring Harry Houdini bound in his 1918 version of the Siberian Chain Escape.
Legend has it... now you can too!
