Ask a spectator to hold out their hand and make a closed fist. Pull out a marker and draw an 'X' on the center of your palm and close it into a fist. Now without any rubbing, erasing or funny business, you slowly open your hand and reveal your X is COMPLETELY GONE. Now ask the spectator to open their hand - THE X IS ON THEIR PALM!

Ask them to try to rub away the X - they can't! It's Sharpie ink! Tell them not to worry though - it's safe and nontoxic and can be washed away easily with soap and water.

The secret behind Double Cross is diabolically clever, and perhaps more importantly, practical. Its always inked and ready to go. There is nothing you need to make or prepare beforehand - just throw the pen in your pocket and you can perform it all night long.

Because there's no difficult sleights, you'll sail through the routine. You're so far ahead the spectators will never remember you coming near them or even touching them. The result is a unique magic effect that's self-contained, has NO reset, and can be performed surrounded. Its a table hopper's dream.

Double Cross includes the MagicSmith designed and fabricated Double Cross Sharpie pen, accessories and complete instructions.

The pen is good quality, spectators are blown away, the trick is fairly easy to do. The downside is, it's nearly impossible to do the trick without getting Inck on yourself from the gimmick. The X that you put on your own hand does not always disappear. The black putty used to hold the gimmick leaves a black residue on your hand. Every spectator ask to see your hands after the trick and it takes away from the effect when there is Inck and black residue on your fingers. It's always a huge disappointment when the instructions don't show up on my penguin magic.

Super Effect w/Super Price Tag Report this review

I'm sure he would sell 10 fold if the price was cut in half, but alas, I bought it. Great trick, but way too much money.

Good Trick but Expensive Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 12th, 2018
I have had great luck with this device and it is a fantastic effect. That's the good. The bad is that, for the price, it is not very well made. I have performed this for two months and have had the gimmick fall apart during a performance. I want to keep doing this trick so I had no choice but to spend and additional $20 for a replacement. If the trick wasn't so damn good I would just forget it.

The gimmick and the effect are fantastic.

I would have liked for the instructions to be a little more detailed.

Fun and awesome effect. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2017
I am just recently getting into magic and illusion. This isn't the first trick I bought off of this site. But it is the first from this site that I've put into practice. Getting the reactions I get are priceless. I'm currently practicing doing it one-on-one, so I've only showed maybe 5 people so far. Every time was an awesome reaction. I showed a co-worker, and he goes, "What are you? Possessed or something?" And the first person I showed, which was my dad, had the best reaction. Really really cool effect.

Amazing but too costly Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 12th, 2018
I find this trick great easy and it leaves the spectator with no process of how it is done. The best part it the way you make the x disappear on your hand. You are left totally clean afterwards, though I only give it 3 stars because of the price. I understand thirty but any more, well you get this review. I don't think it is that expensive to produce.

Could have been but isn't Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2018
It is a neat little trick but it is tooo expensive. It's hard not to get black over yourself and to get it cleanly onto the spec without double or smearing. Also there isn't much in terms of why you are doing this trick on the tutorial. Why are you bringing out a marker and having them hold their hands out? The way it is presented and taught in the instructions people easily and I mine EASILY figure it out. I am working on finding a small sharpie routine to do along with this to make it more usable. Like a vanish reappear etc and throw this in as part of it. For the price this should be in the video presentations and teachings but as is this falls short.
This could have been much much better.

This is one of the GREATEST effects Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 20th, 2016
Do not listen to what anyone else says. This effect gets the best reactions. This is the one they will remember. This is the definition of a worker. Easy to carry around and you will perform this every day once you put the practice in.

Gimmick well make but Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 21st, 2017
Gimmick well made but I have very sweaty palm so it won't work even uses the method taught. Classic Ash transfer move was more natural and nobody ever question the move! but for doublecross a very strong and. Good presentation/crowd management and showmanship to really make this trick work magical and not doubtful.
