From the creative mind of Nicholas Lawrence comes Blade: a classic stage illusion turned close-up!
An homage to the famous Sawing a Woman in Half illusion, Blade allows you to mysteriously split an ordinary card into two separate moving pieces right in front of your spectator's eyes! After the card is split, you effortlessly fuse the pieces back together without any additional cover. The best part? You can immediately hand everything out for examination!
- Blade arrives ready to perform right out of the box. - Each gimmick is handmade by Nicholas Lawrence and the Abstract Effects team. - Immediately hand everything out for examination. - Each package comes with a fully built gimmick as well as additional materials for customization.
This is very good effect. But it can be even better if an advanced amateur like me personalizes, with fewer unnecessary moves. As I insert the queen underneath, I am holding the packet face up at waist level, then rotate it 90 degrees counterclockwise.... Thanks for a very clever item!
I do magic tricks as a hobby for family and friends only. As such my skills are rather limited so anything that is impressive to see and easy to do is a massive boost for me. This trick is exactly that. Easy to master and has a wow factor that everyone looks for. Great trick.
I found it great to watch on the trailer but in practice found it quite awkward to use need to practice quite a lot I think. Gimmick not as good as what I imagined bottom drawer for now maybe return again to it at a later date.
As I am do not aim to be another Dynamo :-), I look for simple illusions that create a great impression but are easy to perform. I especially look for illusions that would work in a business environment as icebreakers. Blade fits the bill perfectly. Nicely made gimmick that is easy to use. The illusion can be readily converted to use business cards or even credit cards. Just the job. A bit more practice and I shall feel ready and able to introduce it into my business introductions. Fab service from Merchant of Magic as ever!
