"Our lovely dad Mick Hanzlik passed away peacefully late last night after a battle with cancer. We'll post funeral service details on this page nearer the time. We love you dad, the loveliest man ever."
Mick was a master locksmith and a great Houdini enthusiast. He was the leading authority on the Mirror Handcuff Challenge and produced beautiful replicas of the cuffs and key. He authored two important primers on the subject -- Houdini’s Mirror Handcuff Challenge, Getting Closer to the Truth and Looking into the Mirror -- and also provided WAH with two excellent guest blogs.
Mick was always a great and generous friend to me. He kept me up-to-date on his latest discoveries and I always knew I could turn to him with any questions. Whenever I came across anything Mirror related, I was always excited to share it with Mick. I only once had the pleasure of meeting him in person at a Cannon Escape convention. He was a true gentlemen and I'm very saddened to hear about his passing.
Say hi to Harry for us, Mick! I'll miss you my friend.
