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.

Very effective BUT! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 12th, 2015
I bought this at magic LIVE and I was very happy. The effect is amazing BUT BE AWARE, this trick you will require you to practice angles till you get the hang out it. Also if the audience asks to inspect then you are gonna have to do some swap out to cover your track. Otherwise great and I recommend it!!!

I absolutely love this pen. It works exactly as it should...BUT the instruction isn't the best because there is no complete performance that demonstrates the cleanup, etc...

Fantastic trick! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 17th, 2015
This is an absolute awesome trick, you will get HUGE reactions with this trick. Also this trick is one of those wonderful tricks you could easily Cary with you all the time as a ordinary thing. The angles on double cross is pretty proof, however when you first start out you might want to keep the audience in front of you until you get a good feel if it.

This is an absolute fantastic trick you will get it down in about 10 minutes, I hugely recommend this - my all time favorite trick.

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.

AMAZING REACTIONS... but needs practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2016
let me just start out with this. double cross is a fantastic trick. what's even better? the reactions you get when you have the spectator turn over their hand and see a sharpie drawn X. I've done this so many times to people and it has got me 3 gigs so far. I'm in love with it.

the only thing you need to be careful of is the actual gimmick. you need to make sure it looks perfect otherwise you'll be stuck in an awkward situation. also, you have to watch your angles. but it gets easy after you practice.

Reason for 4 stars? the price.
that's a lot of money for this effect. I would rather pay half but considering the reactions you get, it's kind of worth it. enjoy!

Buy one.. wait what... BUY TWO!!! Report this review

Best INK effect Utility of the year. Get two, stock up while their hot. It is an amazing utility that first I normally would make this four stars as the price is a bit steep, though once you realize how you wear it on your shirt every day, combining it with things like Tornado Box, Tool, Any other trick that I am sure you use already that you can combine this with you will see that this is worth the price.

I believe they should include more (special stuff) that comes with it for the price you pay, but it will last you a long long time. Refills can be pricy but you can pretty much refill everything on your own except one thing if you wanted to!

It would be cool if Mark Southworth would come out with a version not just X's, but with reveals for Cards like an (A) for ace and (spades symbol) for spades, or simply J<3 ... if they sold more different gimmicks that would fit on this pen they would make a fortune because whoever owns double cross could just get the reveals they want, OR they could sell it at a decent price and include a bunch of different reveals, card symbols - ESP, & more. Bring the creativity to the INK Mark!

I hesitated on my first purchase of double cross for so long because of the price and honestly an X didn't impress me really... However, I performed it right out of the box went up to someone i know close and he FREAKED out. From then, the reactions kept rising, the possibilities kept climbing and my mind runs wild with double cross and other tricks. This is a utility weapon that made me have to get a second one. I also recommend getting a second one if you like this because you are guaranteed to leave it at your favorite magic shop on the street haha, it happened once, it was a sad day. But then Penguin came to the rescue and I ordered another & everything was okay :)

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.

So far this trick has given me the best reactions of "What the heck!?" So far not one person has noticed or even seen the one "move" needed. I am not professional magician, hobbyist at best and I am able to pull this off. As long as you can carrying on a normal conversation, get this trick and blow people away!
