PLEASE NOTE: THE MATCHBOX PENETRATION IS TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK. I AM UNABLE TO TAKE PRE-ORDERS BECAUSE THE MANUFACTURER HAS REPORTED DELAYS.

EMAIL ME AT firstname.lastname@example.org IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE PUT ON A "NOTIFICATION LIST." THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
THANKS TO MAGIC, INC THE MATCHBOX PENETRATION IS BEING MANUFACTURED IN LIMITED QUANTITIES. THE FIRST 100 UNITS HAVE SOLD OUT. MORE WILL BE IN STOCK IN SEPTEMBER. IF YOU PLACE A PRE-ORDER ON THIS SITE DURING AUGUST 2015, YOUR ORDER WILL BE SHIPPED IN SEPTEMBER.
Imagine this: You hand a spectator an empty ungimmicked matchbox. They open it and discover two tiny holes in both the sleeve and drawer of the box. It is reassembled and a match is pushed right through the holes, then extracted by the spectator. She waves it over the box as you banter about magically manufacturing precious metal. When she tries to push the match back through the holes, she can't! Why not?
You don't reply. Instead you drop the box on an appetizer plate --- CLANK! The unexpected sound makes everyone jump. A spectator is invited to open the box and finds a heavy, shiny, bar of gold!!
Danny's routine comes with a brass, gimmicked block based on the original which was manufactured in Europe in the 1990s. Magic, Inc purchased the rights and worked with a U.S. based metal craftsman who has improved the secret opening and the mechanical operation. Danny's 16-page instruction booklet with illustrations by Tony Dunn is included along with a matchbox that is exactly the right size. You'll also get tips on how to care for the block.
This is expensive, but ten times better than the knock-off because the block is more than twice the weight. The configuration of the secret opening allows you to make this an "appearance" as opposed to a "penetration puzzle." To make an informed decision. Watch a video clip of Danny perform his "Magic Alchemy" routine with the Matchbox Penetration for a reporter. It was part of a promotion for the Chicago History Museum's Exhibition on the history of magic in Chicago. Then place your order and start blowing minds with Danny Orleans' favorite piece of close-up magic.
