I need a good reference for this, I have some older methods that just won't work for me. I'm talking along the lines of the David Williamson needle swallowing. Smile

I swallow needles, and I've also swallowed razor blades, which do you prefer to do since there are many resources out there to do it.

I've sent you E-mail, since I didn't know how long the post would be if I wrote it out in the forum.

Thank you Magicman for all your help! I'm still trying to find a resource for a routine using a clear glass & the spectator puts the needles in the glass.The glass can be examined after the needles are swallowed.



This is driving me nuts! Smile

if you need a place to read something’s about this routine (a glass, and the needles) just check for the Jim Steinmeyer book called "Device and Illusion" this is problably the inspiration behind the Mr Williamson presentation... I hope this will help a bit

Have you tried Tarbells Magic vol 4 page 103.



I paid about $30 for swallowing blades effect only to find it was similar to the one in Tarbells.

I'm pretty sure that is one of the older methods of which I know how to do.



I think that the recommendation by Kuffs is what I'm looking for.

When I first started magic I bought a booklet entitiled 'Mahendra's Needle Routine'. I learnt the trick and used it as part of my act on the obligatory Newcomer's Night at my local magic club. A couple of the members approached me afterwards to say how impressed with how clean the load had been. When I explained the technique they were impressed but felt that it was potentially dangerous. I'm not so sure. Well, yes, it might be, but only if you were unlucky enough to have a seizure on stage.



Anyway, I don't know how much more I can say about the trick on the noticeboard (it looks and reads like a very old routine). If you want to know more/if I'm allowed to say more, then just let me know.

Strange thing about razor blades - I once worked on suicide watch where a guy swallowed a bunch of razor blades and I was talking to the doctors and they said that stomach acid would dissolve a razor blade almost instantly. Something about the acid corroding the metal and breaking it apart. They told me the most dangerous part was the razors going down the esophagus. Smile

Check out Sid Fleischman's "Charlatan's Handbook" for a No-switch method for needle swallowing.

It's diabolical!!

Otto Wessely takes razor blades swallowing to a whoooole different level. He must be using over a hundred of them.

Hi,

I'm interested in making a start on
needle/razor blade swallowing Smile
Anyone able to help with some useful resources?

Cheers

Sid Fleischman's idea is diabolical, but caution is the watchword if you use his method. Use only the best, tested materials and then think before leaping. I don't know if stomach acid will do the job on needles but I wouldn't want to be the first to find out. Is the effect worth the risk? Hunter

I know that this has been a while since anyone brought it up, but Tim Ellis has a wonderful version of the blades in his lecture notes, but I'm not sure which notes (he only has two out). Check his website @:
http://www.magicunlimited.com

Hope this helps anyone that might need it.
