A 100% examinable Torn and Restored Newspaper!

The Torn and Restored Newspaper is a classic in magic. John Graham has taken this effect and turned it upside down, stripping away all of the methods that bounded magicians to using glues,wires,magnets, etc. With The Examiner you can perform this wonderful effect with moment's notice, no need to carry supplies around and needing 15 minutes alone to set up your paper.

The biggest leap that John has made with The Examiner is that not only can the paper be signed and looked at before but at the end of the effect everything can be handed out to be examined and the spectator can keep their signed paper! We believe that The Examiner might be the most practical and fooling Torn and Restored Newspaper effect to this day!

Customer reviews for The Examiner


Official review from MAGIC Magazine

From the November 2015 MAGIC Magazine. Reviewed by Francis Menotti

Whether looking for a new piece to fill time in an emcee slot or to use as a feature effect in the main show, this is a whopper of a “packs small, plays amazing” piece that is certainly newsworthy in the magic world.



I came to purchase this after reading John's book Stage by Stage which I recommend to anyone looking to understand how a cohesive show is put together along with some nice material. I have to say that I have performed a few different News Paper Tears and this one is brilliant. The fact that it can be examined before and after makes this a great effect which you can leave with a spectator. I really like the fact that I end clean and everything is examinable. My additional advice to anyone considering ordering this is to also purchase one or two Jumbo Chisel point Marks-a-Lot markers while you are awaiting delivery. When mine arrived everything was dried up so I had to change out the parts. The wonderfully produced DVD includes instructions on the care and maintenance of the gimmick.
