What I'd like to know is: some classic routines and techniques on the knife/bag effect.
I use to do a Samurai sword routine on stage, but it was definately too dangerous to continue doing. It would just be a matter of time before I'd run myself through. Even Tony Corinda advised me to stop doing this act.
So, I'm now researching a good, classic, very dangerous looking knife routine. Something dangerous, but not quite as dangerous as my Samurai act.
