The devils hank is a classic piece of utility apparatus. They have been used by magicians for many years and we are pleased to be able to offer our customers a really good quality one. Our model is made from a heavy satin material which hangs like a regular hank would but hides the “vanished” object without showing the bulk. It is also a plain colour so does not look out of place in any act unlike some of the gaudy coloured ones on the market.
The magician displays a handkerchief on both sides and brings all four corners together in one hand. This action creates an impromptu bag. A small object is placed into the ‘bag’ the object can be felt throughout the fabric to prove its existence. The magician grasps the two upper corners of the handkerchief allowing the handkerchief to fall open. The object has vanished! Both sides of the handkerchief can be shown both sides again.
The devils hank is a utility item which can be used for vanishes, transpositions and related effects.
The devils hank is also very useful for forcing cards, coins, etc; and is ideal for forcing/switching billets for mental routines.
