Then you would have one left with a hook on it.

Wouldn't that then make the trick fail? As in, if they took hold of all the strings simultaneously and yanked them but somehow the hook is still in your mouth, you're not injured, and when removing the hook there's still a string attached to it?

I don't understand this comment.
If they yank all the strings then how do you end up with one left?

The answer to the poster's question is that you simply don't allow them to pull all of the strings at once.
There are ways of making sure they can't if you suspect that they may try to but with a little audience management I don't anticipate this ever being an issue.

Ok, I'm starting to wonder if some of these people even have the trick. If you have the trick you would have understood my comment because there are six strings to start, so if you pull five strings there's one left.

My response was to Leo's post when he said if you pull all five strings, well since you start with six then obviously there will be one left with a hook on it.

If at the beginning you could not show only 1 thread attached to the hook and the others are not, than I do not feel any mystery here. Sorry this is my personal opinion.

Understand and I thought the same thing until I actually performed it and experienced the crazy reactions! I can tell you from personal experience in real performances that it does not dampen the effect in any way by not showing one string attached first.

Again, just sharing MY experiences. And I have said that maybe it's not others but I am here to share MY experiences. Yes, I added Hook immediately to my set and those who own can attest that it's absolutely possible to do so because of the workings. Funny, how you are actually very defensive in your comments, LOL. Yes, my friends and family would absolutely have told me if they knew or figured out the method, hence the reason I show them first and the reason I decided to include Hook in my performances for the right audiences. Your attempt to discredit what I say is amusing. I think someone else has the ego problem, lol....

To my eye it looks just like Morgan Strebler's Razor's Edge just with a hook not a razor blade.

Is the set up the same?

Hey guys I thought of another “sell” for this effect. I have a fissures tongue which is a painless medical condition where I can press my tongue with teeth and slits will appear. Check it out on google images as you may have this ability too. Anyways if you read a previous thread by me I mentioned slugging an airplane tiny bottle of vodka (water) and slapping my face to nonverbally persuade spec that this is the real deal.after having given them instructions. I don’t know that this tongue thing is well known so showing specs that I’ve had a lot of experience with this (then showing fissures) nonverbally implies I’ve had some mistakes, therefore affirming the real danger. I haven’t put this into practice but was inspired by idea when scripting and wanted to share.

Haha! That sounds really convincing! You might warn them beforehand "Pull one string at a time. Don't pull all the strings, like some people have done, ok?" And then show your tongue, non-verbally explaining why they shouldn't pull all the strings, cause... look what happened then. Would create a lot of extra tension I'd say Smile
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

What is the size of the hook?
I don't have a big mouth so I'm a bit worried about being able to do this safely or at all.

My thoughts exactly, I'd really like to know how this differs from Razor's Edge apart from using a hook.

Is there a FB group for this? I'd like to trade some thoughts and additional ideas I have.

It's about the size of a half dollar. If you look at the promo photos on the Lost Art website - you can get a good idea.
