Penetrate a Matchstick Through the Solid Brass Block Inside a Matchbox. Your New Favorite Everyday Carry!
The magician removes a single match from a matchbox and passes it easily through the hole in the center of the matchbox to prove that there is nothing in the matchbox.
So far so good, but what happens next will leave the audience stunned. The magician then opens the matchbox to reveal a solid brass block inside - A complete, solid, impenetrable block of brass that happens to fill the matchbox.
This is the classic matchbox penetration effect. There are also other versions of the effect e.g. knife through playing card box.
The effect is very magical and, at one time, made frequent appearances on TV magic shows.
This year, we will also bring you a brand new version - The Magic MatchStick.
The most amazing part of this magic is not just the effect, but that the gimmick is right in front of their noses.
Upon casual examination, the audience will believe it is a solid block of brass through and through.
Check out a closeup of the brass block.
The devil is in the detail, and every detail of the Magic Matchstick has been thoughtfully crafted.
The key lies in the texture, precision, and meticulous machining of the brass block: the gimmick must be perfectly seamed, the surface must not have excessive grinding marks, and the edges must be carefully chamfered.
Two matchboxes are included in your set. One is an ordinary matchbox, the other is specially designed to be shown filled with matches at the beginning of your performance. When you use the gimmicked matchbox, you can present the dual effects of transformation and penetration.
Note: There are some simple DIY arts and crafts required. You would need to supply your matchsticks.
The entire set of props required to perform such an incredible feat is only the size of a matchbox, which makes it very suitable for your everyday carry (EDC) setup.

Brand new gimmicked matchbox.
You don't have to squint to see that big fat line down the middle. Damn shame too. Loved the idea. 0 out of 10, cannot recommend.
Well made gimmick and pakageing. Love it to performe. Easy to do.
Very very good magic trick. Very amazing and better than their predecessor. Thanks.
I had a different version, (original?).
To be honest, over the years the memory of the trick faded.
But while shopping the site, I saw the trick, and thought naaaaww, couldn't be.
When this trick arrived, ànd I viewed the video, I was blown away how much this more I got.
I like close up, I like tricks that can be carried in a pocket, and examined.
The basic effect is great!
But this new kicker makes it an everyday worker.
I'm looking forward to their next entry.
Making classic tricks even better.
This is amazing So well made Bronze block is great Will even fool you Love performing this As it looks like real magic
A lovely effect.
It still amazes most laymen.
I am shocked at the amazing quality of the trick. I am a big fan of TCC and will definitely recommend their products to everyone!!!
The gimmick is excellently made. Another quality product from TCC
Awesome!!! Just like the rest of their magic! Amazing!!
The quality is outstanding. I admit, I’m still working to become seamless and work out the hotspots with this, but I can tell this is going to be a terrific compliment and walk around trick. I love pocket handy elements, and this definitely has legs, and will easily be incorporated with other match elements. Thanks! This is going to be good.
It's obviously well-made. Time will tell if I add this to my everyday carry bag.
Very good quality, I recommend
TCC has taken a classic effect and crafted it beautifully. The brass block looks perfect! I recommend that the matchbox be made of a sturdy, flexible plastic/paper so it will hold up to many performances. Otherwise, well done, indeed!
I really like the block. Very well made. I find the match boxes to be a bit tight for the block. I’m hoping they’ll fit better after using the trick more and more. Nothing good about fumbling to try to get the block out of the box.
