Spike - Trick
Price: $210.00
Out of stock.

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?

Blindfolded?

Take the chance, prove yourself. A life without pain has no meaning. Give your life meaning.

Spike.

Effect

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."
- Larry Becker

Mind Your Hand Slams! Report this review

The intensity this little piece of wonder can bring is tremendous. Playing up the suspense is key! It also greatly helps to get a hold of the upgrade pack as well as five possible cups can be played at greater length/suspense than just three, highly recommend.

Without giving much away I will offer a word of warning. Be VERY mindful of how much force you are slamming down with as well as your hand positioning. This has nothing to do with concern of getting "spiked" as it is with ruining the gimmick. I annihilated my means of divining the location of the spike in one slam and reeeeeally had to do some fancy footwork to get back in the game and complete the trick. You'll know exactly what I mean when you receive your Spike.

Good stuff!

I am happy with this purchase of a dangerous trick. The detection method that comes with it works well. You can add another method to have two. The DVD also tells of an idea to add a little more safety to the effect. I liked the way this version looks and performs over the others. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try this effect. There is a chance you could mess up but it would be a mental mistake not a gimmick. That is where the safety tip would help.
