Checkout the Flashman- Aveerdon method in The Charlatans Handbook. The Razor Blade Trick is in Classic secrets of Magic also in Tarbell.

Steinmeyers devices and illusions? I may have the name wrong, but awesome effect!

Old when Houdini did it, have read many versions, but will assume that the above references are as good or better... essentially the 'razor blades' was an 'up-date', an improvement... but today THAT is now in danger of being an out-moded effect, kind of like the vinyl 45 record tricks... who will know what a 45 was, some day ? Or a double edged razor blade ? Doubt me, try to find them in your local stores that USED to have them !

I have encountered some problems with this trick. If anyone has suggestions as to how to get the thread to unravel one by one like I have seen on TV please PM. The problem I have is that I use the accordian type solution and sometimes the thread comes out tangled. Not pretty, not magical. If someone could help I would appreciate it. Thread types, how to keep it from coming out in clumps, etc. When David Ben does it it looks so cool. When I practice it looks quite terrible. I am only striving for excellence.
