The stand is nice, but for me the words Pocket, mini, and folds/packs flat all sound pretty good.

Funny, after my latest magical "toys" expenditure, my wife tried her version of the swallowing razor blades on me! And she never read Tarbell!

The needle swallowing effect is great. Better than razor blades, in my opinion.

The only problem though is visibility. It's really tough to see them from only a few rows back. Probably a trick best reserved for parlor type magic shows.

The best razor blade swallowing feat I have found, at least I think, is a Hades Publication. It is an older routine, dating back about 45 years. It's callled 'The Amazing No-Switch Razor Blade Mystery.' That is mostly true, as there are no 'in the hands sleights' or anything like that to worry about. It would take a little practice, but I think it's worth it. You can pick up a copy direct from Hades for $5.00 at http://www.trickster.com
I recommend it, and for that cheap, it's a steal.

Since you asked about the Needle trick and not the Razor blade version (although both are similar effects and have similar methods) there is one very to find, still in print book that includes it. The book is Sid Fleischman’s “The Charlatan’s Handbook”. His is a no switch method and is clever beyond words.

I could name about a dozen references to this one trick (Needle version), but many are out of print and all are hard to find. Sid’s is the most current that I can think of.

Either effect can be a real stunner!

Hope this helps you in your quest for the "only trick that you have ever wanted!"

I finally remembered which e-book on the Learned Pig Project.

"Annemann's Buried Treasure"

It is the same method as Houdini and he calls it:

The East Indian Needle Trick.

The one Harry recommends may be better than this one, as it has no switch involved.
