"I never invented new magic, but I am committed to improving old tricks."
- Fred Kaps (1926-1980)
The Phantom Safety Pin, a nearly 100-year-old magic trick, appeared in the third volume of the Tarbell Course in Magic by Harlan Tarbell in 1928 as well as in Juggling Act in 1983. However, it only taught the method, but did not mention the origin of this trick.
This seems to be a mystery, an old and elegant mystery.
Today, we have incorporated this ancient and elegant mystery into the matching instruments.
Workers must first sharpen their tools if they want to do their best. In order to make more people clearly see and feel the elegant soul of the needles and handkerchiefs in close-up and parlor performances, we have searched for different kinds of pins and various sizes of handkerchiefs.
Finally, the Phantom Pin ghost pin has been created, an incredibly detailed product that embellishes the mysterious soul from the past. We can't wait for you to use and love it.
Fall in love with its interesting soul and history.
Effect: The magician invites a volunteer to stick the pin into the handkerchief and fasten it.
Then, the magician tears the handkerchief and removes the pin. Just when everyone thinks that the handkerchief could not possibly be restored, the magician makes a magical gesture and unfolds the handkerchief.
It is intact, back in perfect condition!
The magician then lets the volunteer buckle the pin in one of the corners of the handkerchief and point to any position along the edge.
The magician pulls the pin to the position specified by the audience. The pin moves like a ghost on the handkerchief, and finally stops at the position indicated by the volunteer. The handkerchief is still intact!
