He owns a very large collection of magic memorabilia and antique illusions. One of the antique illusions in his collection is the "Buzz Saw" version of the "Sawing a Woman in Half" illusion that used to belong to Orson Welles. While it was in his possession, Welles used it to saw Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe in half. Since purchasing it at auction, Copperfield has maintained the illusion in full working order, and has occasionally used it to saw in half various celebrity "assistants" including Claudia Schiffer, Penélope Cruz and Cat Deeley.

While they were married, David was sometimes assisted in his stage shows by his supermodel wife Claudia Schiffer, who acted as his assistant in a number of illusions. One of these illusions, called Clearly Impossible, has been rated as one of the most baffling versions of the Sawing a Woman in Half illusion ever performed, as the box used to cover Claudia while David sawed her in half had clear glass sides that allowed the audience to see right through it at all times.
