recent years the gut wrenching Razor Blade swallowing illusion has become
increasingly popular. What has always been regarded as a stage routine
has now been adapted for close up and street performing environments
by Dan Sperry. Using innocent looking every day objects that you can
carry on you and set up in a matter of seconds Dan has created a simple
yet diabolical switch method that is completely safe and sure to shock
and amaze your audience.
displays 3 razor blades and places each blade on the open palm of a
spectator. Next he shows a small piece of paper and a box of dental
floss. To prove they are real he slices a small piece of paper. He next
takes a length of floss from the box and begins to ingest it - showing
he has indeed swallowed it by opening his mouth. Finally he places the
three blades into his mouth apparently swallowing them as well. After
a few moments he produces the 3 blades threaded onto the floss from
his unharmed mouth.
method and effect can be performed close up and surrounded. The method
is extremely simple and can be adapted to stage performance situations
as well. There is no limit to the number of blades used in the routine,
3 is just used as an example for close up situations. The gimmick can
be assembled in a matter of minutes and effect can be reset in less
than 10 seconds - even in front of your audience! The effect comes complete
with all necessary gimmicks.
Razor blades not included.
