An Oriental vertical tube with 4 feet is shown empty. A small jewel chest is opened and a spectator’s personal item is inserted. The chest is passed through the tube and removed from the other end. The tube is then placed back on its feet and 2 swords of solid steel are inserted through the tube, dividing it in half. The jewel chest is inserted into the top of the tube and can be seen falling and resting on the swords. The lid is then placed back on the top of the tube and the magic begins. The chest with the spectator’s item, slowly begins to penetrate the 2 swords all by itself. After it passes through the swords, it drops freely out the bottom of the tube. The tube is lifted, the chest opened, and the spectator’s item removed!
Watching the slow penetration of the block through the swords is absolutely eerie. The concept of putting a borrowed object into the box was ingenious.
This world first, self operating block penetration does live up the title. Only 25 pieces were released!
