This effect from Magic Wagon has taken over 30 years to perfect. It began as the amazing Ring Tower c. 1986, the brainchild of Wolfgang Grosskopf while he was working at Vienna Magic. In 1992 Tenyo released their Crystal Cleaver. This Tenyo item was a big success for Tenyo and became much better known than The Ring Tower so often this effect is credited to Tenyo instead of Vienna Magic (luckily when Magic Wagon created the Ultimate Sword they credit the correct source as Vienna Magic). In 2007 The Trickery and Magic Wagon got together and produced the immediate pre-runner to this item called Sword of the Ring. Sword of the Ring was a big success and it was almost perfect. Unfortunately, the tower unit could not be examined and you could not see right through to the back.
In 2018 these issues were resolved and the Ultimate Sword Through Ring was created. And boy what a beauty it is. Perfection attained.
Effect: The performer displays a beautiful wooden cabinet. The front and back doors are then opened allowing a clear view right through. A ring is now borrowed from a spectator and placed onto the cushion of the ring pedestal. Next, the pedestal along with the spectator’s ring is openly placed into the cabinet and both doors are then closed. The performer now picks up a miniature brass sword and shows it to be perfectly solid. The brass sword is then inserted through a slot at the top of the cabinet and both ends of the sword can be seen either side of the cabinet. With absolutely no hesitation, the performer pushes the sword straight down to the bottom of the cabinet. When both doors are again opened, the brass sword is found to have magically penetrated right through the spectator’s ring! The sword can then be removed through the slots at the front of the cabinet showing the borrowed ring to be unharmed and allowing it to slide down the sword and fall off into the spectator’s awaiting hand! Everything can then be handed out for examination.
Ultimate Sword thru Ring has been inspired by Vienna Magic’s Ring Tower of the 80’s which is a truly baffling penetration effect. The mechanical “workings” of this latest version, however, are our original design in both construction and operation.
The cabinet measures approximately 5.8cms wide, 12.5cms high and 6cms deep and has been completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish.
A beautiful two tone silver & gold ring (as pictured) is also included.
