A trick 914 years in the making...
The story of King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone has been passed down, translated, and presented in thousands of ways for almost a thousand years. A story of power, destiny, and magic that has withheld the test of time. The story is simple, but the implications are grand. Christopher Wiehl has taken inspiration from this timeless story and has created one of his strongest effects yet.
Have a card selected by a spectator, while the rest of the deck is placed into the box. The chosen card is then replaced, only half way into the deck, much like King Arthur's sword in the stone. Like the tale, the card is now held by the deck, which is now as solid as a rock.
The spectator holds the card, and as the story goes, tries to pull the card from the grips of the deck, only to find out that the entire deck is now solid, and simply hanging in mid-air by the one chosen card. With a gentle wave, the sorcerer releases the bonds of the solid deck, and the card releases along with every other card that has now become, fully restored and freely spreadable as if nothing ever happened.
It's a beautiful, timeless and inspiring as the story of "The Sword in the Stone", now cleverly infused into a fantastic piece of magic that you can easily perform anywhere, anytime.
This store is amazing! We just dropped by out of curiosity - and stayed for over an hour. Nick is probably the coolest human being on earth, never felt so entertained and informed in a store before. Came without big shopping intents, but spent around 170$ on several smaller tricks. Regrets? Hell no. 10/10, will visit again
I finally had a chance to visit Fantasma Magic today while in NYC. If you are any kind of magic or Houdini enthusiast, I can't recommend this place highly enough. I met John and Jack - both very nice guys and amazing magicians. Definitely a bright spot in the Big Apple.
When you go, ask for Nick...He's got you for all your Magic needs! Greatest magic store in NYC, heck even USA.
Nick is AMAZING!!!! Not only is he an incredible magician, but he is a fantastic salesman and human being!!! When I'm having a bad day, Fantasma is the place I go, and Nick gives me a reason to smile. Amazing service and shop. I constantly recommend Fantasma to EVERYONE! I wish there were more stars to give!
The coolest place to hang out and buy amazing magic at great prices! Nick is one of the coolest, friendliest and amazing dudes I've ever had the pleasure of meeting!
