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.

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.

The gimmick and the effect are fantastic.

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

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.

Overpriced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2017
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.

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!!!

When I first saw this, I thought "that's cool, but is it worth $60?"
I was hesitant, so I saved up some money, and convinced a family member to buy it for me. Lmao.
I'm a card guy, and I never carry gimmicks because it just takes up pocket space. This gimmick is perfect for my style of magic. It goes in my pocket, next to my regular sharpie, and I'm set.
I cannot stess this enough: this. Gets. Reactions. It's quick and easy to do right out of the box. Only reason I'd take off points is the tutorial. There's a ton of information they could've given, but they didn't. Which leaves the performer to work out what to do and how to use every part of it properly. Also, needing to by "magic vanishing ink" from the site is a bit much. It's just dry erase. They should've pointed people in the direction of some cheap, easy to get dry erase matches for the gimmick.

Awesome trick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 20th, 2017
I bought this one because I wanted another Sharpie trick to go with SHARP SHOT (which I love and also recommend). This trick is brilliant. When you open your hand to show that the x is gone, they're sometimes afraid to open their own hand. The last guy I did it for nearly fainted when he opened his hand and saw it. I will instantly buy another one of these if I lose this trick because I'll be carrying it around with me everywhere. Best part is that I only had to practice a few times. (I prefer gimmicks that are easy to use...)
