This intriguing and rare magician's cane is one of only a handful made for 19th-century French magicians. The knife slices right through the neck of the carved head - but the head magically remains attached to the cane! This captivating feat is accomplished with the help of small hooks that catch the cane’s shaft and keep the head attached as the knife slides through. Both handle and shaft are beautifully carved out of rich, ebony wood.
