This is a cool looking illusion if you can pull it off. I'm 240 lbs. and can still perform this. It gets a 3 star because I feel it's not good enough to be a stand alone trick. Combine this with another Mayne effect (Bisection) and you have a 5 star winner!

Ok this is not a great trick. Anyone you perform it for will see right thru it. To make it yeh its easy but its cheap but a horrible effect. If you still want to buy it then buy it but i'll garuntee its the worst trick ever.

I liked the pocket sawing in half. The effects are great, the instructions are pretty clear and the gimmick is easy to make.

Andrew Mayne's Pocket Sawing-In-Half Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2003
I respect and admire magicians who constantly work hours coming up with effects to present to the magic world. That doesn't necessarily mean that I like them. After buying "Facelifter" and "Pocket Sawing-In-Half", I gave up on Andrew Mayne. In "Pocket Sawing-In-Half", your pockets don't even have anything to do with the effect so I have no idea why that's even in the title. Maybe he meant that the gimmick is small enough to fit in the pocket. That's what I thought. I was wrong. His instruction booklet is filled with detailed and well explained instructions along with tips and a few extras but has his effects ever been audience tested? I saw "ShockFX" and that was great because I saw each effect in action but as for his other ones, I won't even sleep on it. Sure the cost to build the gimmick is cheap...VERY cheap, but the illusion just doesn't say "WOW". Andrew Mayne has a very creative mind but once you learn the secret, it doesn't seem all that appealing anymore.

What are you talking about Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 20th, 2003
Andrew Mayne is an awesome magician and all his works are awesome. This is true for this too. This idea is brilliant and the effect does fit in your pocket. I don't know what some other people are talking about how this isn't somthing you can fit in your poccket cause it is. Or you could wear it. But this is an awesome book. Some of the tricks are a bit angly that's why I gave it a 4/5. However there is one that you can do surrounded. I do highly suggest this and I think every street magician should get this. A definite buy

Great idea but way over priced. On top of that you need to be a contortionist to make it look really good. Save your money.

Eh...not suggested... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 20th, 2006
Eh...I bought this expecting something great! The exception is that the instructions don't explain how to build the second part very well...so now I can't do the all around sawing...it just shows a picture of the device, it doesn't tell you how to use it or anything...I don't really suggest this if you are a street magician like me...but then again it did lead to bigger better ideas for a stage show that I am putting together...
