OK, I know my photo exposes the gimmick, but I happen to believe that only magicians spend a lot of time cruising the magic listings on eBay -- I doubt that any laymen will get a glimpse of this powerful but not-well-known gimmick. So don't send me any masked magician exposure complaint emails... :-)
A different way to vanish a silk (or some salt poured into your fist, or a rolled up bill...) -- this method will fool laymen of course, but will also leave your fellow magicians scratching their heads.
A custom made gimmick, that is specially fitted to a pen, so that you can almost effortlessly steal away the gimmick (with the vanished silk) during the simple act of poking the silk into the fist with the pen. A hands off vanish, if you do not want to be thought of as all "thumbs" for silk vanishes. Fellow magi who use the more common method for barehand silk vanishes will be fooled along with your lay audiences!
This version of the trick even comes with a pen to use (though most ballpoint pens will work), plus it comes with in depth instructions on how to get the most out of this valuable secret weapon.
NOTE: this is from older dealer inventory, and I find the pen no longer writes -- it needs a new pen cartridge. Writing with the pen is not necessary during the course of performing the trick, but I wanted to make sure you knew
New and unused, from older dealer stock. (Pen does not write, but ink cartridge could be replaced)
