Syfy has a great new show that combines American Pickers, Oddities, and The Prestige - Deals From the Darkside, which follows mohawked collector and historian Steve Santini on his quest to locate, authenticate, and buy history's darkest artifacts.
Be it a deck chair from the Titanic, Jack the Ripper's knife, a hangman's noose, Houdini's handcuffs, or a Victorian cat o' nine tails, if there's a notorious, mysterious, or tragic tale associated with it, Steve wants it for his one-of-a-kind collection, from which over 60 objects are on long-term loan to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, DC.
In addition to collecting, buying and selling dark relics, Santini is a master locksmith and performer whom Ripley's Believe It or Not! dubbed the world's most extreme escape artist. And if that isn't enough, after a botched water escape in the late '80s, Santini discovered he could feel paranormal energy connected with people, objects and places, which fuels his quest to find relics connected to powerful psychic events.
