Thanksgiving Magic With Murray SawChuck

Posted by Michael on November 26th, 2015

It is Thanksgiving, at least here in the States, which means that the staff of iTricks Tower Midwest is (depending on when you are reading this) sleeping in, cooking and/or eating. It is a good bet that they may be drinking as well… Let’s face it, the busiest dealer’s table at any magic convention is the one with the stools and taps!

We still wanted to get you a little Thanksgiving magic, though, and luckily Murray just posted this video on his YouTube page.

By they way, a little birdie tweeted to us that Murray just had a birthday so iTricks would like to wish him a very happy, albeit belated, happy birthday!

Steve Spill’s Grab’N Stab ca. 1982

Posted by Michael on November 25th, 2015

Friend of iTricks Steve Spill sent us this video of his “Grab ‘n Stab” from 1982, which he developed in the late 1970s. He is concerned that there are versions being marketed out there today that are not endorsed by him or licensed from his original.

Any controversy about the origins of the trick aside, it is always fun to see if Steve is going to stab himself!
