It's the Kovari Box, made by Kovari in England. I picked mine up from Alain Choquette here in Montreal. It is made to break down, but I had a case made to take it full size, just roll it in.

It is a good cabaret illusion, can be done surounded, outside, etc. You can train someone very quickly to use as a "volunteer" from the audience.

I start my routine by having someone from the audience get in and I try to put the main blade through, they scream (cued) and then I put my assistant in and do the deed with the audience member standing behind the illusion to make sure the blades go all the way through. They are puzzled also.

Good illusion.

Is it me or is the one in the video narrower than the one put out by George Kovari? I saw his version at Blackpool Convention about 5 years ago, and it seemed wider.

Mark

Just gone to his website, maybe it was just my memory. Just a little change, its actually called MAGICIAN'S REVENGE, priced at £1150 and it can be found here...

Hey MMD,

It looks to be the same size as mine. The way it is painted leads to the deceptive nature of the piece.

Although........

The unit I have, while it came from Alain, was brought over here by Kovari and used on the conventions with his son as the slicee!! So you never know, maybe he does make different sizes, but, alas, I thinketh not!

It depends on the condition of either and what you'll get the most mileage out of. Its comopletely your choice but you may only get 3 mins out of Magician's Revenge, but 10 mins out of Sean Begunia's act.

Have a think

With the audience by-play with the Kovari unit I get somewhat more time.

With the complete set? Personally I think you can get much longer out of them, but it depends on your act at the end of the day, and what is suitable for you.
