Pocket Finger Chopper by Andrew Mayne A borrowed bill passes through your finger!
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
Andrew Mayne (Touching Sky, Shock FX, Wizard School) presents a new spin on a classic effect. The magician removes a card and a bill from his wallet (both may also be borrowed and thoroughly inspected). The bill is slid through two slits in the card. The magician then sticks his finger through both the bill and the card and invites a spectator to grab the bill and pull it free. On the count of three, the spectator pulls the bill and it's pulled straight through the magician's finger!
Staplebound, 8 pages, fully photo-illustrated.

Cool Pocket Illusion Report this review

Okay, there are people who argue against getting this great trick, the reason being mutilating a card and a bill. But that's the cost of the magic. If you like, use a thick paper and a piece of paper cut to the shape of a bill, and that'll do. Even if you're using a real card and a real bill, the cost will be less than two dollars (you can get a deck in a dollar store).
For real, people who aren't used to seeing magic tricks can't figure this out, unless they're "sharp" with their sixth sense.
Speed is the key. Use a clever cover and a nice patter to misdirect spectators from seeing you do the dirty work. As soon as you poke your middle finger out of the hole, you're ready to go.
A card and a bill. Don't want to sacrifice a card and a bill? Cut the last page of the booklet (a mock bill included for practice) and the cover (cut it to the shape of a playing card) and you'll be set.
I was a bit skeptical before purchasing this product, but it turned out to be great illusion that can fit in your wallet. Perfect for walkaround / street routine.

This is a good trick that can be carried in the wallet. It's simple. The reason I am giving it a low score is cost. I like to get alot of bang for the buck, and this will not due it. I still carry it and use it when the time is right, but that's just because I spent the cash so I might as well use it. If you are looking for a lower price pocket trick that you can carry with you all the time save your cash and get Killer Key.

I like Andrew Mayne's magic, but Pocket Finger Chopper is not up to par with his other products. The effect hasn't been thought through properly and it just seems very 'home-made'. That said I reccommend pretty much everything else Andrew Mayne has created.
HORRIBLE Report this review

Do not get this trick. I don't even know why Penguin has this one on here the trick makes you jack up a card and a dollar with a knife or scizzors. I'm serious I've done this trick several 30 times and only one person didn't figure it out. I can describe this trick in 2 words. RIP OFF.
Get lethal tender instead.
