I performed SAW as a stage effec(300-400 people)t. Wow, did it get a big reaction.

I set up a friend as a stooge, brought her up on stage, hypnotized her and begin to perform SAW on her neck. The audiences went wild!! I glanced at the audience and noticed one lady covering up her childs eyes, I can see everyones face go completley white. This effect is forever in my show.

Great job, Sean.


Yuck! See what I mean... Smile

Larry Beckwith, I assume you were standing behind this friend while you performed SAW? so this great effect is visible for all the audience? This's great!

Yes. You may also already have this gimmick in your house.

The DVD is wonderful, but I can't get it to work. Maybe I should buy a different brand of the gimmick... Smile

Out of curiosity, is this anything remotely like needle through arm?

I thought it was all pretty much the same, but maybe there is a difference.

Can this be done walkaround?
Close-up?

I did too, but if you read ChiChi's posts, apparently there are.

Any tips?

Close-up, yes (although if the spectator leans in REALLY close, they'll probably see something you don't want them to see). Walkaround, no. The "reset" can't easily be done in the open.

I just got this very nice. However anyone have any ideas about using blood to make it more realistc. I a mean not that it does not look real but to add the blood any thoughts?


Just an idea, maybe not totally what you are looking for, but will probably add to it.
If you use a black thread, you can probably paint it with some red pen, now if it's the right kind of pen, you can probably get a nice red mark where you "saw".

It's applied to a knife and a arm in another effect, really nice effect to it.

Good work on the effect Sean, this is a winner. Smile

Lol this brings back memories when I thought I would try that as a gag, I did the setup to a knife that I had previously thought to be a blunt knife....but no, turns out it wasnt a blunt knife at all and actually cut myself! I remember thinking at the time "this looks more realistic than I expected!"...one of my more stupid moments Smile

Completely different. This uses thread sawing into your neck, needle thru uses a needle going thru your arm.

I bought another brand of gimmick today. I still can't get it to work, but after reading the health warning on the gimmick, I don't want to try anymore.

I'd love to say it, but I feel it would expose too much. It's not uncommon knowledge, but some may not know, and it's not worth the risk of this health warning to me.

Take this as an opportunity to exercise your creativity! You now know what is required to perform the effect. Keep an eye out for substitutes which conform to your sense of safety. Who knows? You might discover something better!

I use fake blood to do the routine.

I just deep the black thread in the fake blood and roll it again.


What that does...in my mind 2 things.

1) It had gross factor to the effect.

2) Nobody want to touch your neck after that. Who want to touch a neck full of blood? It leave you a little bit less dirty.

Depends Xiqual. I think the penetration without harming your neck is what saw is designed for. I mean, anyone can choke themselves half to death. Only a magician can choke himself and find a lifesaver.


You are so right my friend! Excellent point.

This is a truly real looking highly visual illusion. As such it affords the performer the opportunity to really play up how he wants it. Play it for real... just for the creepy factor... or even for comedy. One thing is for sure, come Halloween these DVDs will be flying off the shelves!!!!!

Hey Guys,

For those who were interested/concerned, Saw should be back in stock at most fine dealers by weeks end.

Again, thank you all for the kind words and support. It is both appreciated and encouraging.
