Default stage blood

I have been getting too many questions about the juggling knives I use, so I was considering using stage blood.
Does anyone know of capsules or brands that I should use?
I was considering ben nye as a possible brand.
Thanks

But I bought the mb knives not the dube and the mbs are made out of aluminum so I have no idea how to make it a fine edge.

The basic formula for stage blood is Karo syrup + red food coloring. It looks even better if you add a small amount of blue food coloring and flour.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do exactly.
For large quantities, zip-lock bags will work.

I would just like something that I could squeeze in my hand to burst. Something easily concealable.
What I will do is "cut" my hand with the blade and squeeze the container of fake blood concealed in that hand.
Thanks for your help.

Just get a small squeeze tube, like from ointment or cake icing, and suck the fake blood up into it.
