The Blade by Masuda(c. 2005) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I love this bill penetration effect from Masuda. It looks amazingly fair with no switches or extra gimmicks and immediate reset. You show a blank piece of paper and a $100 bill. You then fold the $100 and then fold the piece of paper around the $100. You take a simple utility knife, that is real and very sharp, and pierce both paper and bill. You can clearly see that the blade is going through both. You then pull the knife towards you and cleanly cut them. But when you open them up, only the paper is torn, the bill is perfect. This has to be seen to be appreciated how clean it is.
Effect: A spectator examines a bill and a piece of paper. The magician lays the paper on top of the bill and folds them lengthwise so that the bill is covered by the paper. He takes out an exacto knife and insert its blade between the folded bill. Then he pierces the bill and the paper with the blade. Next, the performer slides the knife to cut the paper and the bill. The paper is actually cut, but the bill is unharmed.
Includes gimmick exacto knife and instruction sheet.
Approx. Price: $24.95 (2007) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
