Block of India (Der Indische Wurfel) by Thomas Pohle
Beautiful precision magic expertly manufactured and although it comes with a spare block to switch I have never seen the need because the gimmicked block is so well made, and unless you really know what you are looking for you'll never spot the gimmick.
This is the version created by Thomas Pohle and it is much smaller than the Bill Adams' World of Magic version - the block is just 1.75" x 1.75", otherwise the effect is the same. The size is really convenient however, but finding rings and coins that fit the block is a real challenge, luckily I tracked down some correctly sized rings with Chinese characters on which look and work perfectly, and they are included.
The effect briefly is a ring is borrowed and vanished (using your favorite method). A beautiful wooden cube with a hole running through the center is introduced and 'threaded' onto a wand (a chopstick, cord or ribbon can also be used). The spectator holds both ends of the wand whilst the performer covers the cube with a handkerchief. In a few seconds the performer comes out from under the handkerchief with the cube. The spectator is still holding both ends of the wand.
But that is not all, the performer removes the handkerchief from the wand and threaded on the wand is the borrowed finger ring. The spectator is still holding both ends of the wand. Top quality magic, superbly made, Block of India is not difficult to perform and once the handling is mastered the presentation can be a knock-out.
Comes complete with two blocks, two chinese rings, a wand, and original German instructions and a copy of the Mandarin Exchange instructions in English.
