Dear Cows
Imagine a knife on the chest of one of the actors, positioned at a very open angle that without puncturing the victim's chest actually manages to superficially cut the skin allowing a small ammount of blood to pop out.
I'd need a kitchen knife or even better a tradesman stanley knife. I tried to get it here in Sydney but wasn't what I wanted. I'm ok even with a second hand unit if it looks ok. Is it possible to have a hollow blade where the blood can be squized out from the handle?

I have a short film ready to go into preproduction but before I'll go though with the cast (two actors only) I was thinking the best way to make something believable ...... without sacrifising the actors work by using a prop that looks like a rubber knife. Can someone point me in the right direction such as a website would be fantastic!!!!
Grazie

Thanking you all in advance

If you're viewing the knife from the side, place an eyedropper filled with artificial blood against the other side of the knife with the eyedropper's open end against the blade. Just squeeze the dropper as you pull the knife. It need not be too complicated.
