This may be in the wrong section?...not sure
Just back from vegas & amongs other shows I went to see Rick Thomas at the Sahara (had a quick chat with thim after the show)5 mins into the show he did a silk penetrating effect.... assistant held a silk vertically Rick held a silk horizontally in front of the assistants silk & his silk penetrated the other, looked really cool any idea what this is?

Rick thomas, I've not caught his show but it sounds like an old effect to me,
even the oldest of effects can be new when presented in the right way,
especially if they are so old that they are "out of fashion",
like so many old ideas worth looking into...

Mike,

I've already given you the answer but this isn't secret sessions so it's not overt...

P.S. Not sure what the Central Middlesex Hospital has to do with it :P

Check out Ammar's site. He does this and sells the items need to do the effect. Check out this video he does 28 seconds in.

I had an old brass Ken Brooke locking **** for this and it broke. It was a beautiful bit of kit though...

Ammar just did this in David Leterman's show. He penetrated a coffee mug handle instead of another silk.
