Hello, fellow Magi.
Anybody know of a manufacturer who can design
a sword through the neck illusion with a samurai sword
for an Asian themed act?

Try Wolf's Magic. While not a Samurai he built me a very nice standard version of this effect.

I took my Abbott's sword thru neck and cut off the "cheezy" handle and made a samurai looking handle with some pvc pipe, foam core, red ribbon and gaffers tape. I also cut the tip at an angle so it resembled the tip of a samurai sword more. It only cost about 10 bucks to do the makeover.
You might try that.

Hmm... that sounds like a pretty good idea. I'm not
familiar with the mechanics of the gaffed sword as I don't own one yet, but (without revealing the method in this open forum) from what you are saying, it sounds like the handle has little or nothing to do with the method. I have a friend who manufactures samurai swords and he could customize one for me.
Thanks!

If I were you I would get the special blade prior to getting a handle. Your friends might be able to adapt the handle to it so it looks better. Personally, I make all my own sword blades for this, but you have to buy the first one to know how they work. You ARE NOT going to be able to do this with a sword with a very broad blade. For one thing, it would not fit in the stock they sell. So you can do what you want with the handle, not so much the blade, other than changing length or tip.
