Hey guys!
This has been a long time in the works and I released it this week.

Knotted is a new method for the threaded razor blades, it needs no gimmicks or extra props.
I created it after studying a lot of the existing methods and finding none suited my act.
https://sellfy.com/p/dfta/

There is no demo video yet, I am working on one but I give you my word that every little bit of the routine has been worked on until it is the best it can be.
It is all sleight based as the ad says and I am very proud of this, everyone who has seen it or bought it loves it.

"Although this is not my kind of routine I was intrigued to see what Benny has done to this already classic premise.
What I like about this book is the simple text and explanation, every step is detailed in pictures and clear concise language. You can tell that a lot of thought has gone into this, and I am aware that Benny has had assistance with some big names in magic, including Teller (Penn & Teller).
This is a great idea, I love it" -Wayne Goodman

"Benny's unique twist on an old classic is a sure fire way to improve any razor blade routine" - Mat Parrott (Author of the Geek Magicians Cookbook)

I can answer any questions about this, it's my first release and I'd love to make a good impression

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this

I've seen Benny blossom from a shy, talented recluse at conventions to a top class performer and focal point of a room. Most magicians lead a double life. Person and performer. Benny Brown is the REAL DEAL. His performance is authentic and organic. I love his work!

Definitely check this out.

I will post one here and update the main post Smile

The magician takes 5 razor blades and swallows them slowly one by one, showing his mouth empty after each blade.
Slowly he takes out a dispenser of dental floss and pulls a length out.
He places it in his mouth and swallows.
After some time the end of some floss appears at his lips.
He grabs the end and pulls it out slowly, tied onto the dental floss are all five razor blades.

It's a reworking of the classic effect.

How safe is it ? It says : no gimmicks ... So I presume some hard practicing is needed ?

Very safe, I cover all the subtleties in it.

It is also pretty easy, I would say you could have it down in 3 hours.
It's all sleight based but I have stripped it down to the basics so you can focus on performance.

No gimmicks means no extras that are hidden away to aid with it Smile

I like to think it's close to perfect now, but anyone who buys it and has any suggestions is welcome to send me them.
I plan to send any revised versions to buyers if I ever make some

Ok, SO I bought this and read it... this is EXACTLY what I've been doing for over 2 years now. I seriously don't understand what is new here. Nothing against you Benny, I have respect for you because I love the blades and it seems like you perform it fine, but it says that a LOT of research has gone into this... I don't see how. If you own Bizzaro's Helter Shelter Dvd, some of the methods are almost identical to this. ONE thing has been added that I had played with but felt it didn't suit me. I can't say I'll never use it because I have been using it for years.

I have shown 8 other magicians, 7 of them used this EXACT method, because it's the simplest there is!

I don't see what has been added here.

EXTREMELY disappointed. Am I the only one to feel this way?

Sashac, I'm very sorry you feel this way.

I did a lot of research, Mat Parrott who wrote the Geek magician's cookbook and I did the research as he had read into the history of it.
I looked into as many routines as I could, I had to message people as I have been broke for the past 4 months and can't afford many new products.

I can pull it off the market if you reckon that would be the best course of action?

Once again I'm sorry I thought I had done enough research and asked the right people but evidently I didn't
