Andrew Mayne presents the latest effect in the Illusion Impact series. The magician stands behind an audience-examined barrier of razor-sharp barbed wire. He raises a cloth in front of him with the top of the barrier still visible. He takes a step forward and lowers the cloth revealing that he has passed through the barrier unscathed.

Razorwire is a one-person illusion that can be built for under $100 and can even be made to fit inside a briefcase. Just a few tools are required and only basic carpentry skills are necessary.

Razorwire is described in a 12-page 8.5 x 11 manuscript with scaled blueprints and photographs. Step-by-step construction and performance instructions are included.

  • The illusion can be inspected by the audience
  • No assistants are required
  • Everything can pack into a briefcase
  • The entire effect can be built in just a few hours
  • The total cost to build is under $100

(This review is for Razorwire by Andrew Mayne - Book)
Wow... A FANTASTIC, practical and CHEAP stage illusion for less than 12 dollars?

Wow, that is a lot of stuff to say about a 12 page booklet! I do however think you, like me, will be pleasantly surprised... ;)

Quality: The quality of this booklet is fantastic, bieng that everything is full color with very high quality pictures. The paper is also very heavy and high quality. The paper feels just like the cover.

Content: This booklet teaches you exactly what it is supposed too. It teaches you how to make and walk through a frame with several strands of barbed wire connected to it. The frame is examinable, which I thought was nice, and throughout the booklet he teaches you subtulties, like how to walk through the frame and have your shirt ripped to pieces and how to perform this effect surrounded.

Price: It's like 12 bucks on Penguin. It is definitly worth that for an awesome stage effect. Oh, and it says under 100 bucks. That's a bit misleading because it's only like dollars max.

Gimmick: Yes, this effect works by using a gimmick. It isn't the frame that's gimmicked though. Nope, it isn't the cloth that you raise above yourself thats gimmicked. The gimmick was very interesting, and not something I have seen in a lot of stage illusions before. It is a great idea, and opens up an army of variations.

Conclusion: I feel that this was definitly worth the money. Most stage illusions that are this good cost anywhere from 0 to 00. I rate this a 4.5/5.
