***SELL OUT AT THE 2014 IBM SAM COMBINED***
Ask a spectator to hold out their hand and make a closed fist. Pull out a marker and draw an ‘X’ on the center of your palm and close it into a fist. Now without any rubbing, erasing or funny business, you slowly open your hand and reveal your X is COMPLETELY GONE. Now ask the spectator to open their hand - THE X IS ON THEIR PALM!
Ask them to try to rub away the X - they can’t! It’s Sharpie ink! Tell them not to worry though - it's safe and nontoxic and can be washed away easily with soap and water.
The secret behind Double Cross is diabolically clever, and perhaps more importantly, practical. Its always inked and ready to go. There is nothing you need to make or prepare beforehand - just throw the pen in your pocket and you can perform it all night long.
Because there's no difficult sleights, you'll sail through the routine. You're so far ahead the spectators will never remember you coming near them or even touching them. The result is a unique magic effect that’s self-contained, has NO reset, and can be performed surrounded. Its a table hopper's dream.
Double Cross includes the MagicSmith designed and fabricated Double Cross Sharpie pen, accessories and complete instructions.

After being recommended this by a few UK magicians, I picked it up. I now carry it on my wherever I go and perform it all the time.
It's easy to do, and his idea for the reversal was pure gold. The perfect answer to "can you do that X trick again".
Buy it now, you won't regret it.
(Also great service from WMS. With me in less than 24 hours after purchase)

Due to the smoking ban the old 'ash through hand' trick isn't really used any more, but this is a better replacement. Not cheap, but the gimmick is very good quality. I've teamed this with Cross (also expensive, also worth it) which makes for a good five minutes of ink jumping.
