Head Chopper by Supreme Magic Company(c. 1979)
I purchased this at the IBM Magic Convention in Brighton in 1979. I have never been able to track down who the manufacturer was but recently saw a photo in a 1978 issue of Supreme’s Magicram which looks a dead-ringer for this chopper, so for now at least I am going to attribute this chopper to Supreme Magic Company. Let me know if you have any more details about this chopper.
I don’t know if I would still perform this effect, but I’ve always used it as a lie detector and never really talk about it as a head chopper and as long as the spectator doesn’t lie they are going to be fine.
For many years this was a big hit of my show and a perfect size to transport to your next show. The Wellington See-Thru Guillotine might be one of the most impressive choppers ever created, but it is a pain to transport, whereas this bad boy folds up small and is easy to carry under one arm.
