For product information


Poke a giant butcher knife into your arm. Cackle with delight as blood splatters everywhere while your audience screams in horror. Then you pull out the knife and your arm is completely restored. This is the Freddy Kreuger of comedy: The Amazing Johnathan's Knife Through Arm!

One of The Amazing Johnathan's signature effects was carving his arm with a vicious-looking blade. The blood ran down his arm as the knife was halfway through his member. Incredibly, the knife was then removed without a wound being visible. He performed this trick thousands of times in his shows around the world. Now Penguin Magic has collaborated with The Amazing Johnathan and his wife to bring one of the scariest comedy magic tricks to the public.

Modeled after the knife Johnathan made himself, every detail has been perfectly recreated and crafted into a long-lasting prop that not only looks but feels fantastic. With Dan Harlan's guidance, you'll not only learn how to use the knife, but also how to make your own fake blood so you can take every ounce of fear out of your audience. This isn't some silly Halloween gag.

It is a professional prop designed for thousands of performances. The knife is easy to make, safe to use and incredibly fun to demonstrate. Your audience will scream in horror and delight as you perform The Amazing Johnathan's Knife Through Arm!
