Magi displays a bright metal sword and bangs it on the table to show that it is solid. Or he can puncture a balloon with it. A set of neck stocks is shown and locked around the neck of any willing spectator. Performer cries: "Watch!" and deliberately forces the sword right through the center of the stocks and out the other side, apparently putting the sword right through the spectator's neck-without harm or pain.
A ribbon can then be pushed through the stocks-and presumably the spectator's neck, and pulled back and forth. As a final touch, as in sketch, smoke can be blown through the stocks and neck. A BIG EFFECT that can be used when selling the show as a talking point, an illusion that packs small and can be worked close-up and even surrounded.
Complete with stocks and sword.
