A simple game of chance…
With a four inch spike.
Four inches of cold, hard steel ground to a point, and rising vertically from a solid wooden base.
Will you drive your open palm down onto it with force?
Take the chance, prove yourself. A life without pain has no meaning. Give your life meaning.
Three unmarked wooden blocks are displayed and one four inch steel spike. The performer can have his back turned, be blindfolded, or even leave the room while the spectator places the spike into one block (free choice). The spectator is then instructed to cover all the wooden blocks with styrofoam cups. The performer walks over to the three cups and instantly smashes his hand on two, leaving the cup with the spike underneath untouched! An incredible feat of mentalism!
Ideal for stage, cabaret, cruises, and other larger venues, this hand-crafted beauty is a versatile magic prop that can be played for comedy or high drama! Whichever way you choose, you will leave your audiences spellbound!
Please note that there are no outer markings and the system used is sure-fire and no-fail 110% safe! Everything can be examined before, during and after.
“I like both the compactness of the apparatus and the simplicity and dependability of the method. It works like a charm and with a modicum of care and caution by the performer, ending up with a spike through the hand should not occur. But a word of caution, like any other dangerous stunt (remember me, I’m the guy with the three pistols) you must not be careless or suffer from brain cramps. The method is excellent but that does not mean accidents can’t happen if you allow your mind to wander when it should be focused on the performance. If you’re a professional, SPIKE is definitely recommended.”
