Blades Thru Arm

There have been two or three examples of this popular one-person illusion going around. I know Mak-Magic has one called "Disarmed." There is also a cherry red model I've seen a few times but I'm not sure who made it. And of course, there is this version, "Blades Thru Arm" from Daytona Magic. Regardless of who the builder/distributor is, the workings remain the same and it's quite a convincing effect, provided the performer remembers "the golden rule" of magic; "it's all in the presentation."

Effect: With the blades laying on the table place your arm through the device. Remove your arm and replace it again. Place the blades into the device, and now you can open the box. Don't forget to wiggle your fingers! All that remains to do is close and latch the box. Remove the blades and show that your arm is restored.

Your Assistance Requested

While it's true that I have constructed many of the effects displayed on this site, it's also true that I am not the creator/originator of how they function. As such, I have researched, to the best of my ability, to give credit where it's due. On some, I am at a total loss as to who the creator is, so I simply left that portion of the description, blank.

If any visitor to my site here, knows or suspects they may know the creator, please use the button below to contact me, if you will and steer me in the right direction. I'll be happy to add you to that credit, for your assistance, provided you approve of my doing so.
