This well made apparatus really fills the bill, now that guillotines and other "threatening" apparatus are banned from some venues. It can be played as a "chopper," but the blade doesn’t even pretend to be sharp. This gives the performer the option of playing this piece in a completely non-threatening manner.
You have to change your patter and give up the tried and true guillotine jokes, but you can adapt this easily any audience. And it really sells – , it’s more of a fooler than most choppers and guillotines.
At my venues, I’ve had to give up some beloved routines, including my Dante sword-thru-ncek, sawings, and anything that even looks like a gun. So it’s nice to have a "chopper’ that I can still use, and that really entertains.
I’m very proud to add this beautiful house of magic to my collection! I’ve been watching Francois grow over the years and his magic has been improving all the time. I feel with this particular limited collection he has really found his way.
Everything about this collection is perfect – from the box itself, the 4 beautiful effects that are so neatly housed inside and even the instruction booklet. There is nothing that a collector of fine magic would not love about this release. If you are one of few collector’s who has not followed Francois’ rise, now would be the time to jump on board.
This collection comes with four effects: Ladies’ Portraits, The Unprisonned Lady, Moriarty’s Secret Room, and Moriarty’s Escape. But what is unique about this collection is that each effect has been designed to be performed as part of an overall Sherlock Holmes tale. So it is not just a box of cool tricks, but a full on Sherlock Holmes adventure with magic thrown in to spice it up!
I’m sure most of us will just perform an effect or two, but if you take the time to master the story you’ll have an enduring classic on your hands.
There are only 12 of these but if you can get one then you’ll be lucky to have a true work of art that even Sir Arthur would be inspired by!
