Cut 2.0 Review

Official Review

Cut 2.0 is awesome. It is not for everyone, but for those whom are intrigued by the idea that you can, from the spectator’s point of view, cut your skin, visibly bleed and have the wound heal in front of their very eyes, this is super cool.

I didn’t ever play with the original Cut, but have and love P’Ink. Both tricks operate with the same method, but Cut/Cut 2.0 appeals more to those that like to shock with gore. What can I say, I am part of that group.

Cut 2.0 comes with 2 applicator pens, in a small box with a small piece of paper with easy to follow written instructions. It also comes with a file to blunt a knife, which I am pretty sure that no one will use. The link to the 23 minute instructional video is included with the written instructions. The video is to-the-point and really not necessary if you want to get going immediately because the written instructions are very easy to follow. The video is helpful for some tips on how to use Cut 2.0. The video also gives you a link to access the original Cut instructions which contain a 26 minute explanatory video as well as a 14 minute video with additional tips. It also gives you access to the P’Ink instructional video.

The set-up for Cut 2.0 takes about a minute. You can put this on before you go out and use it at any time. This trick is for the performer who really likes to ham it up. However, this ink will not react the same with all performers. Some people are more hot blooded than others and that will make a difference. I am pretty sure that if you are reading this review that you will know what that means. Sometimes the color of the wound/blood is more blackish than red, but the web based videos that you have access to explain how to address that situation. It will take some trial and error, but I feel comfortable that issues such as that can be resolved with some experimentation.

The promotional video stars Ran Pink and is more of a mini Hollywood super-hero like film. While the cut and bleed portion of the promo video are accurate (as far as it looks on me), the healing process, on my skin, was much slower than in the video. This may vary from person to person, but the speed at which the wound and blood disappeared in the video seemed super-fast and perhaps faster than would happen in real world situations.

One of the issues that is a negative is how to “cut” your hand. Using a piece of ice provides great results. However, if you want to use a knife, it can’t just be pulled out of your pocket. It needs to be cold. That can be problematic and if you are seen “cleaning” the knife in ice water, that may tip the method.

The trick is marketed as “limited” but it is not described what that means. Are they only selling 100, 500, 1000? When products have a finite number of pieces, I think that should be disclosed.

Because I have only had this for a few weeks, I am unable to inform as to how long it will last or if the applicators will dry up.

Manufacturer's Description:

"As close to real magic as it gets... bloody amazing."
- Dynamo

The ability to speed up the healing process in the human body is one of the most sought after abilities in human history. Hippocrates, Jesus and Wolverine are known for it, and you will be too. To prove your power, you take an ordinary, borrowed knife to your open palm, cut a gash so deep and believable that blood appears to exit the wound. As if this isn't enough to freak everyone out, your spectators watch, in awe, as the wound magically heals before their eyes. You're a superhero; the master of your body; and instant legend. Make it a reality. Start a religion.

"CUT offers the wise mystery performer a dramatic anytime, anywhere piece of illusionary wish-fulfillment: man's primal desire to be able to heal himself. Ran Pink has given us something which is Fantastic."
