Hi,

Recently, I've added a Choppo, collector's edition arm chopper to the family of ungimmicked, deceptive illusionettes at www.jimmyfingers.com/choppo

The accolades are numerous, and from many stars

"By far, the most deceptive chopper ever!" - Jeff McBride

"The best, most amazing effects are simple and elegant in concept and
design. Choppo is that for sure. Congratulations Jimmy!" - Kevin James

"Choppo fooled me for a long time. It's a great centerpiece of Jimmy's
act. The rest of you are just lucky he is finally sharing it. " - Bizzaro

"Jimmy showed this off at an IHOP in Vegas after our show. It is very deceptive and just looks great in action. Jimmy has a very clever mind when it comes to making effects simple, and strong. This always equates into crazy deceptive methods. All of his works have a place in magic and are very solid. If you are looking for a good arm chopper, it looks like this is the one to get."-Loki Kross

"Whoa, hard to believe nothing is gimmicked!"-Gene Tony

"Jimmy Fingers' "Choppo" Killer prop, it is the Mercedes of wrist choppers. Nothing is gimmicked and everything appears innocent and is examinable IF you wanted to do so. It is also very portable. There is nothing to break or go wrong. Check out the link to the performance video above. I like it a lot and highly recommend it."-Harry Murphy, Maryland

"The Jimmy Fingers' Choppo is a very strong effect..."-David Todd

"This fooled me badly and I have seen it five times now at various conventions"-Stucky

"This piece is a work of art..."-W. O. Oz

"Fooled the heck out of me many times over. The method for this is very clever. Never have I seen a routine "fry" (and I do mean FRY, people) like CHOPPO did! Not only was the audience in a complete state of amazement, but ALL of the performers were completely speechless. Nobody had ever seen anything like this before and all of us were completely dumbfounded...and that's not easy to do to a cast made up of magicians.I just got mine in the mail and all I can say is WOW!!!!! Mighty Awesome..."-Christopher Lyle

"Just got mine which has number 2 inscribed. Other choppers are TOYS compared to this. This has every detail covered, and built like a (beautiful) tank!"-Clyde Hayre

"The working of this is brilliant!! I am excited about adding it to my shows. I'm totally impressed with its design and the construction! Wonderful prop!"-Carl E. Jones

"Add me to the fans of Choppo! I know. $495 plus shipping. BUT! Like ME, you can SAVE for it! It's a worker... Myself, I would NOT use ANY other chopper than Choppo!"-Dougini

"Especially nice that you do not need a table to perform this. I have just about eliminated all the effects in my show that need a table. I like it all to be done in the hands in front of my body and in front of the spectators. This effect is perfect for my style. When I saw Jimmy's demo, I WAS VERY IMPRESSED. And I am very hard to impress. Jimmy made the lame trick into a world-class entertainment routine. I had to watch it several times to find when he did the "secret something" and even when I figured out when he did it, I COULD NOT SEE IT! Everything Jimmy has done with this is GREAT! I think making it bigger(to fit the arm) and the other subtleties makes it so much more convincing. Thanksso much for releasing this. You have literally turned straw into gold!"-Ace

"Choppo is a beautifully constructed prop. I never had a chopper of any type before this one, and I'm glad I waited. It's a real fooler, yet looks so simple and innocent, in a suitably dangerous kind of way."-Maxfields Magic

It fools those who aren't fools. It packs flat, plays hard. Examinable. Bulletproof hardware, method, effect. Best thing that you could bring in a briefcase.

Adds value to a parlor show, stage shows aren't too big for it. Angles are not an issue. It's engineered to take the impact of repeated passages of the sword.

It's a highlight of my shows, has been for decades.

Who wouldn't?

Out of curiosity: what's the difference between CHOPPO and Fuji Tine by Fujiwara ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDtUxVF1Swk ) besides the difference in size?

Reminds me of “Chopper” sold by Louis Tannen.
Ther are 10 type of people in the world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't,

Choppo is very nice and much more deceptive than other arm choppers.
