The "George Sands Method" is much easier than any methods discussed in Tarbell or other sources. George Sands was methodical and explored all methods available to him before coming up with his own, original, simpler method of switching the blades.

  • No fancy apparatus.
  • The entire effect can be created in less than 30 minutes
  • Developed to be a "powerful, audience-silencing - put them on the edge of their seat" 5-minute routine.
  • Comedy patter included.
  • Entire trick easily fits in a pocket.
  • Resets in less than 2 minutes – one if your fast!
  • See Alan Sands also perform his version of the same illusion for an audience, for the camera and at a lecture.
  • You will also see George Sands perform his version for a local Phoenix TV show in the late 90’s.

This is an easy-to-grasp concept and the one slight-of-hand move is easy to master.

This DVD is a complete set of instructions on how to make your own set of razor blades and how to perform the trick. It includes multiple video clips of how to perform the routine live, performed by both, George Sands & his son, Alan Sands.

All you need are a few supplies found in a hardware store & pharmacy:

  • Sandpaper
  • Two spools of thread
  • An empty matchbox
  • Double-edged razor blades

Alan, very patiently, shows you all the tricks & innuendoes to make the trick work smoothly.

This effect has 30 years of stage practice and perfection. Almost every magic show Alan has performed has included this exact routine.
