The magician, playing the part of a surgeon, transforms a spectator’s selected card into a sharp scalpel.
The top card of the deck represents the patient. The magician slices right through the middle of the patient with the scalpel card.
When the scalpel is removed and the patient examined , the incision has miraculously healed, with no sign of any stitches!
A very novel and entertaining effect that is made for Bicycle poker-size cards.
